Pelican Bay At Utah Lake

I had a few hours to kill so I headed down to Pelican Bay to see if the catfish were biting. As I arrived and got set up, I enjoyed a nice breeze and a fantastic view of some hang gliders that had a motor attached somehow. I was quite surprised at how well they could maneuver through the air. I had two poles set and in no time had hits on both of them. I set the hook and reeled in a white bass on each one. White bass are fun but i really wanted some catfish to eat. I kept them for cut bait but that nice breeze died down and the bugs came out. I could not believe how fast the bugs descended on me and how thick they were. As fast as I could go I packed up and headed for the truck. I got a half hour of fishing in and two white bass to show for it.

Bait for the next trip to Utah Lake.


  1. The bugs! THE BUGS! They're insane out there. Sorry you only ended up with a couple of whities, but it's better than only catching mosquito bites.

  2. That it is LOAH. I've never experience bugs like that in my life. I had to put my shirt over my nose to breath they were so thick.
