And I thought that my #14 salmon egg hooks were small. How do you bait a little pup like that? Bit of worm?

I use them to tie teeny tiny flies

Been a bit more interest in the Small Cat part of the contest this year. I even had the "lead" smallest for a few days, then my wife did for a few days. Now the smallest cat is verified 4 inches.
The photo attached isn't from this year or even part of the contest when it was caught. But wish I could get one like it now Sly

That is a 3 inch rat-l-trap that it bit on one of the treble hooks. Lure looks bigger than the fish..............Wink Fish On

What is up with you guys up north? You come down and set a fire up Spanish Fork Canyon that funnels all the smoke to us so we don't dare go out and go fishing. Sheesh!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One does not hunt [fish] in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted...If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job.

I think your smoke is up here as well, but only little fish are biting for me anyway. Been twice this week and not a fish over 20". Don't know where all the larger fish are. Later J

yes it has been smokey here. Makes it hard on breathing but sure makes for some awesome sunsets.




Still finding a few big fish down here Jeff. not as many as I was and not big enough. You do have to put up with a lot of little guys though.

Funny one day I was finding nice fish in a hole and ever since they are 12"ers. Guess I need to keep at it but kind of hard when ya have so many other requirements for your time. Wish I could fish more but it's just not going to happen this time of year anyway. Good luck. J

can't believe how many upper 20" cats (from 24-29) are coming out of the bear river this year. here are a few including my last 32"er. this was just the past week.

Nice fish!
There are alot of nice fish coming out of there this year, hopefully next year them 32" fish grow a few more inches. I still can't find any lunkers like you, they haven't moved into the holes I usually do good at.
Wonder if this weather will have them not biting for awhile or turn them on? Well, keep the big ones rolling in, don't want the South thinking they still have a chance! Haha.

John, you just keep rackin up those Cats. Keeps me hopeful I'll hook one or two before October.....Wink
Thanks for the bag of bait today. I soaked it in the chicken blood I had. Got lots of taps, and hits on the meat, but didn't stay long enough to see if a bigger cat would take the hook.
