Have you ever used flourocarbon and had it spring off the reel and cause a big mess? The first way to avoid the problem is to make sure not to over fill the spool. When I do over fill, here is how I control it. https://youtu.be/GOGlOwbX7Zo
A couple years ago I started hunting Elk here in Colorado. My wife Leesa and I started by spending as much time in the backcountry as we could. We did not know what we were looking for but slowly started to find game trails and even spot elk, deer and a couple bear.

It will be fun this year seeing Dike 3 recede back into the depths. It rises like a beached submarine every four to six years only to dive back a couple of years later. I started guiding about 20 years ago and I have seen it all. High water, low water, and everything in-between.
This lake Granby area fishing report is being brought to you by “Fishing with Bernie”. The crawdads have hatched!!!! The past couple weeks the fishing has been getting tougher on Granby, Grand Lake and Williams Fork. The fish will still bite but it takes some patience.
