Lindon Utah Lake 7/12
Was back in town last week (moved out of state a decade ago), and wanted to show my kids one of my old fishing haunts, relive some memories and get them to experience catching a big channel catfish or two.

Took a canoe out north from the Lindon Marina. Paddled across the small bay north of the dike. Halfway across started trolling a little curly tail jig. My youngest brought in a little white bass, which became bait for the rest of the morning, in addition to the shrimp and worms we brought with us.

Fished the bottom with sliding sinkers above a T-swivel, and attached two hooks, one with shrimp, the other with either white bass meat or a worm.

Each of my boys in the boat caught a nice channel cat, which was a proud dad moment and so fun watching them fight a big fish and have it get to the boat, turn and run again, it was just awesome.

I managed a big cat of my own, and my youngest also pulled in a bullhead on worms. My dad and brother in the second canoe brought in a few channels as well. We anchored up about 50 feet or so from the weedline, and casted to within a few feet of the reeds.

There was a bit of wind that once in awhile pushed us in too close to the reeds, so we had to re-position ourselves a few times. The anchor just dragged in the mud on the bottom.

It was a great morning, too bad I don't get to do that often (no good catfish lakes close to home in WA).

Attaching a couple of pics.

Looks like they enjoyed themselves. Glad Utah Lake came through for you.

Wow, you have been gone that long, time really flies. Glad you were able to get back here and show your kids one of your old fishing spots, looks like they had fun. When you get back home, the Wa board could really use some fishing report post.Wink

Forgot one detail about this trip. We left a clear plastic tackle box about 8" x 10" full of spinners, jigs, bobbers, etc. that belonged to my 12 year old son on the north dike at Lindon that day. Went back for it later that afternoon but someone had already picked it up and kept it. We checked with the guy at the booth but nobody had turned it in. My son was so sad! :( Not cool, whoever you are!

(I'm sure nobody on here, just some freeloading dishonest knuckle-dragger.)

Well that's too bad, maybe the person that found it posted it in the lost and found section on KSLUnimpressed.

It just may be that such people can't or won't read Unsure. Been thinking the same thing about those power squadron people who are so rude Mad.
