I have a confession to make. I have not yet purchased my fishing license for the year!! My old one expired in June sometime and that means I haven't been fishing since then. WO UNTO ME !!! I did do some fishing in Star Valley, Wyoming with my brothers for 3 days and had a great time (but that was Wyoming).
So, I took a look at the forum today and am having a bit of trouble.. I have been fishing over to Strawberry over the years, but I am not seeing much in the way of positive comments about it. What has happened to Strawberry? Is the fishing lousy this year, or are people just keeping their fish stories to themselves where Strawberry is concerned. A couple years ago, in November, I pulled in over 25 in less than 1/2 hour. I had 2 on at a time quite frequently. The other guy in the boat had the same thing going, so between us, we probably caught near 50. All 18+ inches. No keepers though. Is this happening this year anywhere? Is the lake dying? Or am I just being impatient?
If anybody has been to Strawberry recently, please let me know how it's doing. I seem to recall that it starts getting a bit better this time of year until it ices up, and then the Ice Fishing crews take over.
Also, what about Utah Lake this year? Anything good going on there? I live less than a mile from the Saratoga Springs marina and have a sticker so I can launch from there. I have an 18 foot aluminum boat with a 150hp motor (so it can go 35mpg). Anyway, anybody have any advice on Utah Lake near the North West corner this time of year?
Let me know where I should go. I've had about all the non-fishing days I can stand. It's time to renew the license and get busy. My boat has only been out 2 times this year, and those were just to make sure it worked, and to drive a few of my nieces and nephews around the lake.
I've really got to repent and mend my ways. I'll never make it to heaven with my dismal fishing performance this year.. Wo is me...
See ya all later, and HAPPY FISHING !!
