  Strawberry 1/16 S&M 1/17
Posted by: Ramen4Breakfast - 3 hours ago - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (1)

Went hunting for Kokes this past weekend. Got a lot of advice from everyone here which was appreciated. I ended up heading from the Ladders side of Strawberry at 6am, out towards the trolling triangle. Founds a deep spot ~90 FOW and marked a few fish. I was using a dodger with a ratfinkee tipped with mealworm, but that didn't seem to interest the fish much. Most of the fish was marked was in the 10-30 feet down and adjusted my depth to match. They ended up being Cutties and Rainbows. I punched a few other exploratory holes but unfortunately wasn't able to find the kokanee.

The next day, a friend of mine wanted to go and try S&M during the evening. Got there around 3 and fished until 7pm. Took a snowmobile out there but stayed close to the dam. There is a layer of slush on the far side and I didn't want the snowmobile to get stuck. There were a few spots that look like open water, but I think it was just the slush layer peeking through. Scared the bajeebus out of us when we rode by the open water holes. Terrifying. We ended up on the opposite side of the boatramp. Fished in 20 FOW, but it was fairly slow. Ended up catching a couple of small rainbows and cutties. Right before we left, we did end up getting a single small kokanee that was put back. He was caught off the bottom and I wasn't marking any schools, but they seem to like smaller glowing teardrops. There's a lot of snow on the ice, so it is pretty dark down there. 

All in all, I had a fun weekend. Best of luck to everyone!

  Double GIANT Stingrays & Bonefish Morning!
Posted by: ScubaChris - 5 hours ago - Forum: Hawaii Fishing General - No Replies

[Image: Double-Ray.jpg][color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.87)]Got To Fish With Local Angler Josh Madayag! 

I spent the night on the pier with the mice until Josh Madayag arrived. I had a 40min GT battle earlier that left my right arm numb & hurting. The North winds arrived around midnight freezing me on the spot. Not even the bats or mosquitoes came to visit me. 

Never seen a back to back stingray hook-up before. Young Josh needed an extra hand. The Bonefish was the bonus for this day. The night before my bowling buddy Raymond Allen came for an unexpected visit. He got a massive Bonefish strike at 9:40pm but the damn metal structures in the water shredded his mainline. 

Always a great pleasure to meet other anglers. Josh loves to fish & it was my pleasure to share an adventure with this awesome young anglerSmile

Fished S&M yesterday between 11 and 2 toward the south end of the reservoir in 15 FOW. Probably about 14 or 15 inches of ice with 4 inches of snow on top and some slush in the middle. Fishing was a bit slow to start off with but picked up around noon. Caught 4 rainbows and 2 kokes, missed at least twice as many. Fish would seem to come through every 10-20 minutes and hang around as long as I was jigging. They bit most often on green plastics tipped with meal worm on the drop with a short pause at the bottom. It was a beautiful day with only one other group on the ice. I was able to drive to the reservoir in my 4x4 pickup but I imagine the road won't be passable with much more snow (if it ever comes). Felt good to finally get some trout and my first koke throught the ice this year.

  Starvation Conditions
Posted by: Uintah - 7 hours ago - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (2)

Hey all, does anyone have any recent condition updates for Rabbit Gulch and the bridge area of Starvation or know what the ice thickness is?  I was there with my buddy and kids on Monday.  We walked down the hill to the shore near the bridge the lake was ice capped as far as we could see  except near the cliffs on the North side of the bridge had some open water still, but there wasn't anyone else nearby and so we were nervous to venture out not knowing the thickness of the ice.  I did hand drill two holes about 6-10 feet out from shore and the ice was a solid 8+ inches thick but again was still nervous to venture out over deeper water without knowing the ice conditions further out in the channel.  Anyway, we ended up driving over to Knights Hollow  and fishing there for a few hours.  Ice was snow free for the most part and a solid 8-10 inches.  We ended up catching a limit of trout.  Nothing huge, but fun nonetheless. The biggest fish was around 16 inches, the rest were all around 12. The bite died off to nothing around 2 so we headed home after that.  Anyway, just curious how thick the ice is near the bridge.

  FG ice conditions
Posted by: Muskyon46 - 10 hours ago - Forum: Utah Fishing General - No Replies

I have heard from a few sources that the ice conditions have deteriorated quite a bit with the warm up. It sounds like the pressure ridges are opening up a bit with the warm temps and wind chewing at it. Other areas may be opening around springs and methane pockets also. Just be aware of your surroundings when driving or walking on the ice. If one of the open areas freezes back over with a thin layer and you happen to cross over it, it may not be good.  Also fishing ice that borders open water could become a floating ice berg if it detaches and starts floating down stream. Be safe and steer clear of suspect areas or check them out extensively before crossing. I will have a better report after the weekend as we are heading that way today. We're fishing/camping north going out of lost dog and making our way south towards the confluence.

  Tips for making Pempek not hard
Posted by: joniesdoger - Yesterday, 02:24 AM - Forum: Fish Recipes - Replies (1)

pempek is one of indonesian dishes made from fish

Tips for making pempek not hard are not only sought after by beginners. Because, almost everyone wonders how to make pempek that is not hard. You see, the delicious pempek must be chewy, not hard. Making pempek is a bit difficult, but that doesn't mean we can't make it. So that the artificial pempek is not hard, consider these 2 tips when making it.

tips sharing by (links are not allowed by new members)

1. Pay attention to the raw material

The first thing we can pay attention to when making pempek is the raw material. The main ingredients of pempek are fresh fish meat and sago flour. However, the nature of sago is only to glue the dough together. Sago flour we use at most 25 percent of the use of fish. After slamming it until smooth, the gelatin from the fish will combine with the dough. Fish gelatin is what makes pempek chewy. So, before mixing with sago, it is better if the ground fish is mixed and slammed first.

2. Kneading the Dough

The second thing that we must do in making pempek is to knead the pempek dough properly. You see, the wrong kneading process is the main cause of hard pempek. The ingredients that have to be kneaded until smooth are actually just fish and the spices. So, first we make the starter for pempek from wheat flour.
The trick is to cook the flour and cook it with water until thick. After that, then we can add fish and other ingredients except sago flour. The results will be even better if the fish is cold and just came out of the refrigerator. Knead the fish until smooth, aka not sticking to the hands. This method of kneading takes a long time. When the dough is smooth, then we add starch or sago to the fish. Now, if it has entered sago flour, you cannot knead the pempek dough again. In fact, we just need to stir it slowly until the flour is well blended.

  Logan River Watershed EA
Posted by: Fisheneer - Yesterday, 02:12 AM - Forum: Utah Fishing General - Replies (1)

Attention Admin, if this is not okay, please delete.  But we really want the BFT crowd to give their input in the process.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with the Cache Water District, Crockett Avenue Irrigation and the cities of Logan, North Logan and Hyde Park as the project sponsors, is proposing to partially fund through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act, the Logan River Watershed Plan in Cache County. The plan will address flood control and flood protection, evaluate measures to reduce water loss and increase efficiency in the current irrigation delivery system and consider additional recreational facilities.

NRCS will hold an online public scoping meeting on January 28 to introduce the project as part of the Watershed Plan Environmental Assessment (Plan-EA). The public is invited to attend to learn more and ask questions. A brief presentation will be provided prior to a question and answer session. More information is available by contacting the study team at 435-213-2872 or loganriver@utwatershed.com.[Image: 7-BE5-A2-D2-B516-42-D5-A7-BE-373-E6-A13-C4-C0.jpg]


Several public agencies, non-government agencies and key stake holders have given some cool comments during scoping and they really do want everyone’s input.  This is the one environmental process where alternatives haven’t even been developed yet. They have some concepts, but they start with a clean slate after the comments come in during scoping.  So, please, get involved if you are interested in the Logan River.
