Utah Lake Mixed Bag

Fishing Time:  6:00 pm to 9:30 pm
Weather:  Partly cloudy, T-80s
Moon Phase: Full Moon
Location:  Utah Lake (honey hole)
Best Bait:  Worm/cutbait 3-feet underneath a bobber
Who Went:  Bobber John, Devin, Dunc
My son Devin and I made a trip back down to our Utah Lake honey hole that has produced some great fishing from the shoreline this year.  My buddy Bobber John also tagged along.  It was the same story this trip except this time the honey hole provided a bigger variety of fish.  We found one spot for Devin that was within his casting range and every time his bobber landed it was fish on.  The best part is he never knew what he was going to catch.  Devin caught bluegill, white bass, and channel catfish from this spot.  Unfortunately I didn't take as many pictures this trip.  We were having to much fun fishing!  
Devin and Bobber John hit it off pretty well, and by the end of the night Devin was following him around like a puppy dog.  When Bobber John told him he was going to try a topwater bait for largemouth bass, Dev was overwhelmed with excitement.  Largemouth Bass are Devin’s favorite fish to catch.  They didn’t end up catching any, but Dev anxiously followed Bobber John all evening hoping for a chance at catching a largemouth bass.

By the end of the night we had caught too many fish to count and Devin was bored with white bass and bluegill and only wanted to catch a BIG catfish.  The big catfish never came, but we did land a bunch of decent sized ones that seemed to satisfy Devin’s lust for big fish.  It’s safe to say that Devin is extremely spoiled and is already in “big fish” hunting mode.  I suppose the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
