According to my cable guide the show was first shown 9/19/09. If this is correct - What was the reg for Miners back then?


The show aired on Saturday evening. It was a new show that was taped in the last couple weeks.



But, to answer your question -- the regs were the same in 2009. They've been the same for ~20 years.

Its fascinating how this conversation evolved from a take down on some illegal activity to an inspection of our colons. There are likey a hundred puns that are applicable, but I will abstain and simply add to the recommended to go get checked. My brother is alive today because he did. I get checked every couple years owing to high risk. It's not so bad. I save up all my good puns to thoroughly embarrass my wife and the nurses before the procedure. And I am a highly skilled professional at being a so stupid dork when I come out of the knockout drugs. My wife says I am highly inappropriate and embarrassing. Good times.

I was watching. I usually watch Adam Eakle. I was channel surfing and saw they were at Minersvillle so I had to keep watching to see how they did. As soon I saw they were tipping the wedding rings and squids with bait, I got really excited and went right to my fishing guidebook to see if the regulations down there had changed.
That would really make the trip down there worth it, especially during ice season. Nope no changes in the latest 2019. Then I thought maybe there was some kind of updated amended thing out on that and I couldn't find anything. Then I continued to watch to see if he was going to keep a bow under 22. He at least got that part right and mentioned the size restriction but it was kind of funny as he mentioned that you need to check your regulations down there due to the slot limits.

I am sure you will now have a few anglers head down there and they will be tipping with bait. Then when the fish cop asks them how they did and what they used to be so successful. I can hear it now. "We were tipping wedding rings and squids with crawlers." Fish Cop- "You can't do that here. This is artificial flies and lures only"
Fisherman- Well they did it on the tv show, "Hooked on Utah" Whoops! It might be good to have Wildlife spend the next few Saturdays down there letting people know. I would hope that "Hooked on Utah" could at least make things right on their next episode to have Gary apologize for the mistake and give out the correct info.

Well it is still a fun place to troll buggers on sinking line for those big bows. It was great to see the water level up.

Utah actually has a document library online, https://digitallibrary.utah.gov/...warchive?item=13846. People like me get obsessive about that kind of history but then again, you never know when it might be useful to know if regs were changed....maybe knowing when there was a complete die off or something similar. Here's the page from the 2009 guidebook that has the Minersville regs, just for reference.

Edit: forgot to attach picture.

Looks like the first year for Wipers in Minersville was 2011. So they wouldn't have been catching Wipers in 2009.

Hooked on Utah is my drinking game. Every time Gary says, "awesome", I take a drink.
I hardly ever remember the end of his shows.

Maybe make him get a colonoscopy on his next show? They might find out he has brain cancer.

I just watched the episode from his web site, and did not see any mention of using bait, so he must have edited out his mistake.

Only really irritating thing is listening to him reel in fish after fish with the clicker on.

Doug Miller was one of my best friends neighbors, lived right across the street. I remember going over to his house and hearing his most recent fishing/hunting tales. I vividly remember him pulling in his driveway one evening with a MONSTER cougar he had just shot...so cool. "The Host" (and especially his wife) drive me crazy. I can't stand to listen to either one of them. "The Host" comes over to our SH reservoir constantly, and I've had him move in on me several times when I was nailing nice ones, enough to get me and my boat in his shots. Greg is a nice, respectful guy...so I know it has to be "The Host" doing that. He handles fish terribly and is always fishing private waters like it's some kind of accomplishment catching nice fish on them. I stopped watching him a long time ago...time for a better UT fishing show!

We realize the latest Hooked on Utah episode upset many anglers, and we wanted to follow up with you. Our officers have met with the show's host, and he has been cited for the infraction.

On this week's show, he plans to address what happened at Minersville and will correct last week's misinformation.

Just as a reminder to anyone who's been reading this discussion, the special regulations at Minersville are as follows:

Minersville Reservoir, Beaver County
— Limit 1 trout over 22 inches.
— All trout 22 inches or smaller must be immediately released.
— Artificial flies and lures only.
— Cement outlet channel between the dam and spillway pond, approximately 55 feet long, is CLOSED.

The daily limits at Minersville are as follows:
— Smallmouth and/or largemouth bass: A combined total of 6.
— Wiper: Limit 6.

And please remember to check the current fishing regulations at https://wildlife.utah.gov/...oks/2019_fishing.pdf before fishing at any Utah waterbody. Thanks!

I didn't care for any of the others shows but I do enjoy watching Adam's show which I record weekly. I don't know how many more screw ups Hooked on Utah has to make before they pull his program.

Thanks Amy for the response from the division, I’m sure this will calm some ruffled feathers around the site. Thank you.

PS to everyone else I was out of pocket yesterday and didn’t keep up with everyone making mention of the hosts name and bashing he and his wife. I have to remind everyone of the BFT policy of no picking on anyone, I know it seems that celebrities may not be the same as the rest of us, but they are. Please no personal attacks and if you did make mention by name I’d ask you to edit the post to refer to them by host and co-host. Please remember to play nice and address issues not personal attacks. Thanks Jeff

Jeff...errr....I mean SkunkedAgain....errrr....I mean Moderator: where do you draw the line of what is personal, and what isn't?


The "host" of the show broke the law, and has been issued a citation. Why can't we name the host by name?? I see nothing wrong with this.

And people voicing their opinion of his show shouldn't be an issue either.



Other names that have been mentioned in this thread:
Doug Miller
Adam Eakle
Pat Scouten
Reese Stein
Jeff
Merlin Olsen

Where is the line of what is "personal" (ie: picking on someone) and what isn't? I mean, you guys are discussing colonoscopy's and people that died of cancer -- but you don't want us to mention the name of a TV show host that broke the law on his show? Is BFT concerned that this host might be offended? That offends me.

Jeff -- I'm sorry, but I found your post very odd.

Reason for my post is according to the two rules below I made an interpolation that there was a lot of personal bashing more than just the illegal act that had occurred, if you disagree take it up with my boss and they'll dock my pay... Later J

OPEN DISCUSSION AND CONTROVERSY:
We encourage the free and open discussion of any issue related to fishing, including regulations, tackle, techniques, species, environmental issues, etc. However, whenever someone makes a post that becomes negative and directed at the way mods are performing their duties or is personal attack upon BFT or another member, that post can be moderated or deleted.

PERSONAL ATTACKS:

In most cases, moderators will not interfere in good natured ribbing or mild bantering. However, some members are more sensitive than others. Posts that offend any other member may become subject to moderating action…editing or deleting. Members who establish a pattern of frequently and openly challenging, heckling or berating other members will have their posting privileges curtailed.

does the host of the show have an account on BFT?

Those policies all regard members. They don't say anything at all about non-members.

Not trying to stir -- just looking for clarification. Thanks for the discussion.

Sounds like he is owning up to his mistake and excepting the punishment.

Is there something else he needs to do?

I agree with the Mod,, no need to try and destroy the guy and his family over a piece of night crawler.

Really? Ruins him!
He may not be the best TV Host and he may be irritating and do a lot of stuff that we don't like including bait fishing illegally. But to wish someone and their family gets "Ruined" is going over the line.
