  Catch a Cure Starvation
Posted by: MACMAN - Today, 02:24 AM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (1)

My son and I fished the Catch a Cure at Starvation last weekend. It was our first open water tournament. What a well ran event for a great cause. I would highly recommend if you have any interest in fishing a tournament, to do this one. The organization, people and gathering where top notch. We fished the walleye side and did surprisingly well for a couple rookies. We ended up catching between 20-25 walleye, and only could manage a weigh in bag of 4 legal (12”) fish. I’m not sure where we placed, but I’m thinking somewhere around the middle. In this tournament, the winners donate their prize money back to the charity, camp Hobe. That is a retreat for family’s that are dealing with a child that has cancer. I would highly recommend doing this event if you are even slightly interested and have an extra $125 that you can donate to Camp Hobe. I think we are going to fish in the Classic in September. That ought to be a humbling experience.

When I got up this morning, the wind was blowing in Pain City. Nineish it died so I was fishing at the south marina before 10. Peddled out to the feedlot and slow trolled (.5 MPH). Didn't take long before the first fish was on and it stayed right busy until a little after noon when the wind came back up.  Today, you didn't have to wait long for a kittie and i had three or four doubles.  Drug fligs tiipped with marinated chicken.  8 -10 FOW seemed like the sweet spot, but  I did find several in 6 feet. By far, my best day at the bay this year.

  Porcupine 4 species
Posted by: 2knots - Yesterday, 11:10 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (8)

Ran up to the Pig with the big boat with a Fri that’s out visiting to look for some browns. Worked the whole lake pulling stick baits, Lyman’s and speedy shiners, picked up 3 browns off different points, 1 bow and 4 kokes. The final species was a moose that was swimming across the lake. Side plus was able to map the whole lake with the Garmin quick draw.

  Tue 6-28 Soldier Creek
Posted by: Wasatch801 - Yesterday, 09:43 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (2)

Fished SC side yesterday with my brother.  We've never fished kokes there before and am really kind of a FNG at kokes in general.  I thought we did pretty okay given that.  Fished near the SC marina, across to the cliffs over to the dam, and up into the narrows some.  Caught fish in all areas.  Fish seemed very spread out.  We fished 50-50 method catching most fish with 4-5 oz. weight out.  Pink was the hot color dodger/squid.  Weather was glass calm to white caps.  But we stuck it out.  We had the lake to ourselves!  We ended the day with 6 kokanee.  Most were smaller but one was 20" and 3 lbs.  Hit and fought like a freight train!  Probably lost a couple kokes. Too many small trout caught... 3 dozen plus?

  Help with tackle for Mac Pups at the Gorge
Posted by: GrandpaD 2020 - Yesterday, 06:04 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (6)

We will be heading to Flaming Gorge in a few weeks.
Will be fishing from a boat in the area of the Dam.

Please help me with ideas of tackle that will catch the Mac Pups there.
Planning on jigging but could also troll if that works.

Thanks for your help,

  Make Sense? - Making Bad Scents?
Posted by: Jmorfish - Yesterday, 05:20 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (5)

So I guess this is a thought/question for all you koke/trout trollers, or anyone else applying liquid or oil scents to any of your lures (ei, hoochies, squids, assasins, or whatever)...Always trying to fine-tune my game here...I always clean or wipe down any flashers, dodgers,etc that I apply scent to when done fishing, but do any of you clean your lures afterwards to get rid of old scent? If so, how, and what do you use? In addition to the pre-scented bait (corn, magots,etc) sometimes I'll put a little extra on the lure itself, and I'm thinking that over time those different scents are creating some Bad Scents of their own, maybe even breaking down some of the plastic....some of my squids just didn't smell fresh anymore...Make Sense?...

  The shad are out in full force at Willard
Posted by: wiperhunter2 - 06-28-2022, 03:06 AM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (4)

Some of you are not seeing the shad out there but Reelfast has a 5,000 watt fish finder that really shows them well and we saw more out there today than we have in over a month.

[Image: lots-of-shad.jpg]

We caught two eyes right off the bat with our trusty Apex lures, then that went dead. We trolled for hours after that and nothing, finally we started seeing terns diving and shad jumping out of the water, being chased from some predator from below. Hard to see them but if you click on this pic you should be able to spot the terns.

We trolled toward them and quickly picked up three eyes, one so small we had to let it go.

We also caught a crappie and a cat but that was it for the day and we went in a little after 1 pm. Here are the fish we kept today.

Meet a member at the cleaning station that did better than we did, so hopefully he will reply to this post, in case you are having problems getting on site, send me an email at bigfishtackle@yahoo.com and I can help you get back on the site. Good meeting you today. Also saw Goose716 out there today.
By the way, we went over the island today and it was less than 2 ft deep and the buoys are no longer on it, so be very careful, if you don't have it marked with your GPS.
