Largemouth Weekend
It's been a little while since my last post, but this past weekend I had a few pretty successful Largemouth trips that I thought would be nice to share. I've been targeting mainly bucketmouths the majority of the summer, and I've found a few nice areas (Deer Creek, Utah Lake, etc...) around Utah County that have been producing well for me the past couple of months.
I've had the most success from sun-up to around 10am and from around 630pm until sun-down. I've been using various crank baits and plastics, and they all seem to be producing equally well.
The pictures attached are some of the bigger fish I managed to catch this past weekend ranging from 3-7 lbs (I scaled the fish I'm holding in the pic at a hair under 7 lbs...he sunk straight to the bottom and fought so hard I thought it was a channel cat until I got him in!).
The pic with the planter rainbow next to him was a cool story. After I landed him, my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to weigh him. While I was getting out the scale, I looked down the cavernous throat and saw the tail fin of another fish squirming. I pulled out that planter rainbow, which was still alive, and he even swam away when I released both of them!
The largemouth fishing has been incredible the past month. Doesn't seem to matter which body of water I go to (which holds them of course), they seem to be hungry and biting!

Were you on shore? If so great work there man! Enjoy the bass while the getting is good. Eventually the conditions will change and so you will have to as well.

Glad to see you got out again.

I have no idea what fishing from shore or boat has to do with you're success, but you found some brutes. I have been catching a bunch in my carp spots but nothing like your hogs. Nice work and jealous.

Are you kidding? In a boat at UL your options for LMB terrain is way better! There is a whole lot of shore line that is unavailible to the shore anglers there.

Whatever you say. I have been there though. From the pictures there appears to be some shore. I am betting he would do just as well from a boat as from shore

You two place nice Tongue
I mix it up a bit. Whenever I can get on the boat with my father-in-law, I jump at the chance. For the most part, I'm shore-bound. There are good spots I've found from the shore, and good spots from the boat. I definitely prefer the boat (less bugs and people to deal with), but I just love fishing for Largemouth regardless.
Any chance I have to throw a pole in the water, I'll gladly take it!
@TyeDyeTwins, I still want to take you up on that offer and get out on the water with your brother and you before the cold weather rolls in!

Huh? If you mean play nice, I wasn't aware we were playing at all. Just made a comment on an observation.
Never mind.
