Utah Lake Bass Fishing

Fishing Time:  7:00 am to 12:00 pm
Weather:  Partly cloudy, T-50s
Moon Phase:  Full Moon
Location:  Utah Lake Harbors
Water Temp: 60 degrees
Best Bait: Jig/trailer
Who Went: Bobber John, Dunc

It’s time for the Utah Lake largemouth spawn and I want to hit it hard this year because there are some monster bass in there and it’s some of my favorite fishing of the year.  Bobber John and I got it started today by taking the boat down and making the rounds on the harbors.

Today’s weather was okay, but yesterday was cold and extremely windy, so I was hoping it didn’t affect the fishing.  Strong wind and cold weather can push spawning bass off their beds.  Unfortunately that may be what happened.
We launched at AF Boat Harbor and fished the entire shoreline without a bite.  We moved on to Lindon Harbor and besides a couple “phantom bites” no fish were landed.  We thought about calling it quits, but decided to make the run down to Provo Boat Harbor.  I was able to land one chunky bass right off the boat ramp in Provo, but that was the only bite of the day.  I hope the weather and fishing gets better soon.  Either way it was a beautiful day to be on the water and soak up some spring rays.
