  Idaho license fees - what am I missing?
Posted by: kentofnsl - 4 hours ago - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (2)

I just read that the Idaho license fees are increasing for nonresidents. 

"Most nonresident hunters, anglers and trappers will pay higher prices for licenses, tags and fees starting Dec. 1. Price increases will vary by item, but here are new prices for some of the most popular licenses and tags for adult nonresidents:

  • Nonresident combination hunting/fishing license increase from $240 to $264 
  • Nonresident hunting license increase from $154.75 to $185 
  • Nonresident fishing license increase from $98.25 to $108 
  • Nonresident deer tag increase from $301.75 to $351.75
  • Nonresident elk increase from $416.75 to $651.75
Nonresidents cannot buy 2021 hunting, fishing or trapping licenses until Dec. 1, however, they can buy three-year licenses at current prices, which will be valid through 2022."

So, as I read this, I can purchase a three-year license, before Dec. 1st, and of course I would need to pay for three years and it will only be valid for two years!  Under what circumstances does that make sense?  What am I missing?

  Final Fling on Utah Lake 10-21-20
Posted by: TubeDude - 8 hours ago - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (1)

Figured I'd hit the "warm before the storm" at Lindon to try to bump my catfish score one last time.  Launched just after 7 to calm conditions, 44 degree air temp and 57 degree water temp. 

Motored down to the bubbleup to try for some nice sized whities like I got on my last trip.  They didn't show up.  Threw plastic, spinners and small cranks all along the pipeline...with only a few mini white bass to show for it.

Gave up on ABC (Anything Besides Cats) and put out two kitty rods...one for dragging bait and the other with a big blue-backed silver flig.  Dragged whole chubs on the one rod...later switching to whole small white bass.  I sweetened the flig with a half white bass...heads or tails.  Both worked.  In fact, I had several double ups...a fish taking the second rod while I was bringing in one on the other.  But with good use of my "rod trees", properly set drags and fin power control I was able to land almost every fish that wanted to play.

Almost constant action until I quit at 11 to meet Pikeman at the ramp for a new ice rod handoff.  Most fish were "early twenties".  Several 2-footers.  Several more in the 25 to 27 inch range.  No bumpers today...or for the rest of this year.

Couldn't have asked for a nicer finale.  Beautiful weather and a plethora of active kitties.  Tugs is drugs.

  Successful deer hunts
Posted by: Bovineowner - 10 hours ago - Forum: Hunting and Shooting - Replies (2)

IHad the privilege to hunt with my 76 year old mother on her Vernon limited entry tag. She is a hard core huntress and had taken 38 bucks and 19 bulls in her career. She wanted to hunt the mountain even though we have had some great bucks in the hay fields. The second day of her hunt we found this buck. My wife and my two kids and my Dad were all with us. Mom got a great case of buck fever but still sealed the deal on a wonderful buck!!!!! Couldn’t be prouder of any buck or any Lady!!!! A priceless memory and experience. Life is good

Then had a friend call me about helping his friend. We met up yesterday and spent a long day on the mountain. It culminated in another great deer.  And met a really nice guy and his son. He is really happy with his buck. Glad to help

  A Worm Problem
Posted by: Cowboypirate - Yesterday, 06:04 PM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (2)

Hi, my name is cowboy-pirate ? ☠ 

I have had a worm problem for 50 years now, but my addiction has expanded by logarithmic proportions in the last decade.

Unfortunately, my wife thinks I need professional help. 

Case in point. Last week I went into a local gas and grub for a much needed coke and snickers. I came out with a huge Smile and two boxes of " Canadian" night crawlers. When my wife asked me why I was so happy, I told her I thought girls from Australia had cool accents that attracted men, so worms from Canada ought to make the crappie go nuts. After smacking me upside the head, likey the root cause of my health problems, she informed me that I was a sucker for worms in fancy wrappers and as expensive as my addiction was getting I need to start catching my own worms.

Bad mistake, Cookie, to suggest.... I then pulled out a bussiness plan I crafted at about 8 years of age ( thanks mom for keeping that) First, Cookie, i lectured, we raise rabbits and mink. We sell the rabbit and mink fur and feed the rabbits to the mink. Second we raise worms in the rabbit and mink manure and sell to them sportsmen. I then took her outside ( we now live in the house i grew up in) and showed her an ice box buried in the ground, where my carefully conceived plan came to fruition. I made a killing as a youngster selling Henefer, Hotdog-sized worms - bet someone on here bought them. 

She shook her head and sighed and walk slowly away mumbling the name to her therapist into her phone. I am not sure she sees the vision as clearly as I do. Perhaps addiction is not really a couples malady.

Oh, ya, and I caught 35ish fat gills at Pineview last week while exploring a couple differnt locations. They speak Canadian apparently. Caught on pugly perch bugs near shore in 3-8 ft of water. Some were harmed in the process,, as noted later in my frying pan. Did I mention this is a Pineview fishing report....

  Screamers on my Okuma T40X Rods @ Lunchtime!
Posted by: ScubaChris - 10-20-2020, 06:06 PM - Forum: Pier/Bank fishing and Surf Fishing - No Replies

Trevally Hit At Lunchtime on my Okuma T40X Rod on Live Crab!

I was whipping Completely Hooked Lures "Scuba Blue" 2in grubs this morning inside the West Loch area. Caught & Released a few White Trevally papio. Then a screamer! Grabbed the lure and ran to the island across from me, couldn't stop it with my whipping rig of a 8' Okuma T-40X Steelhead with a 3000 spinner with 8lb SeaGuar monofilament. Whatever it was, IT WAS TO BIG FOR MY RIG TO HANDLE. It ran into the mangroves and spit the hook out. The #4 MZ red Sickle Hook was mangled. The glow threads were pulled off, the 10lb Sakura leader was chaffed, and the CHL 2in grub was "sashimi'd". Lol.

So i went up a notch and took out my 11ft Okuma "Drift" rod with a 4000 spinner with 30lb PP line. By then i had used up my left-over squid. No problem. I took my net and collected a few blue pincher crabs for live bait (have the bleeding fingers from baiting them w/pinchers still on). Used a #5 MZ hook with 12lb Sakura fluorocarbon leader. Within 5min of the crab hitting the water i caught this bad boy, a nice 17-1/2in White Trevally Jack Papio. I had fun reeling in this fish! His "buddy" tailing him was a Barred Jack much bigger then this fish! Didn't tighten the drag as that's how fish are lost, within gaffing or netting. estimating this fatboys weight around 4lbs.  Unfortunately he swallowed the hook so had to keep it. I live for action like this!

I really miss my Okuma T40X rods. Okuma has since replaced this series with the Guide Select Pro line.

  Mustad Kaiju Pliers!
Posted by: ScubaChris - 10-20-2020, 04:31 AM - Forum: Saltwater Fishing General - No Replies

Lightweight 7-1/2in Split Ring Pliers by Mustad!

I have several Mustad pliers i was given to try so i this'll be the first one. My first reaction was how light it was. Then the configurations wasn't the typical jewelers style of a split ring pliers. So i sat down & played with it. After a minute i figured it out. Now i'm in love with it. I feel i don't have to open my other packs now.

The teeth & configuration of the jaw is extremely user friendly. The Tungsten Carbide blades are replaceable. Went through my 325lb SS Wire like it was nothing. The jaws are stainless steel. I liked using the inside jaw for my split ring work on my jigs. The outer jaw is for large plugs.
