Who Went: Me
I fished Utah Lake on the way home from Tooele tonight at the public Saratoga Bay Marina. I drive by it on my way home every evening and have never fished it. The weather was windy all day with scattered thunderstorms so I wasn’t expecting much. I decided to use the same jig that brought me success at Lincoln Beach Harbor last week.
I walked down to the bank of the harbor and instantly saw a tail surface that looked like a largemouth guarding a bed. I casted out and within seconds I caught this chunky guy.
I continued casting for about 10 minutes and like a light switch the breeze changed to gale force winds. It must have been 40 mph winds and I could barely even keep myself upright, so I called it a night.
