I'm wondering if you had to guess, how may fish do you guy's and gall's catch in a year. I usually catch only around 50 to 75, mostly because I spend most of my time hunting. If I had to guess I would Say Loah, Orvis, Nibble Nuts, and Americanfork dude would be in the top 10. Seems like fish glymph would be up pretty high also. I'm guessing .45 would be somewhere's in the bottom. :mrgreen: Sorry if I missed anyone.

Utah Lake, Pelican, and a couple other honey holes raise my numbers most deffinately, but I don't get out as much as I would like because of school. I would be curious as well, I know there are more knowlegable people in here but I do fish a LOT and catch a few too. While most people are more into quality then quantity, I just enjoy catching fish. There are some SERIOUS fisherman in here though. It's great just to be mentioned, thanks Fixed Blade. I would feel safe saying i've hooked at least 1,000 fish out of utah lake this year alone, but I would have no clue, there is some serious competition!

I would think that the person who catches the most fish probably doesn't post much...They're too busy fishing.

I really don't catch that many fish. I had a couple of lucky days this year, but only a couple. I spent most of the "good" season at reservoirs and I would consider a decent day of fishing as being able to take a fish home.

If I would have spent my time on moving water with spinners, I would have caught much, much more fish, I think.

A day at Scofield for me usually consists of 5-10 fish caught. A couple of times this year, I had big days (when I used a fly behind a bubble), but days like that are very rare for me.

Truth be told, I don't catch a lot of fish.

Nice brown on lunchbreak. Go 2008! :)

Took a freezing walk along the LP yesterday between Nunn's and Bridal Veil and got skunked, though.

How did you get Cabela's to let you borrow one of their fish to take that great picture? Do they rent them by the hour, or just the day?

That's too bad you have to go all the way up to Idaho to catch big fish...
Just kiddin with ya, nice fish. As far as the biggest, I would have to disagree. I have caught muskies that would eat him for dinner.

Muskies and salmon do not count they are classified as 'big game' you know like elk, deer, moose..... :wink:

Agree with Hookjaw nice fish for Idaho but catching a Tiger Musky is the fish that beats them all here in Utah. Especially the fight this fish gives the angler. So IMO all other fish, are well, just bait. Not to offend other anglers and their preferred species of fish to target. :wink: It's all in the experience of fishing and I don't really look at who catches the most its the fun of catching a "fish." So, for the biggest I'd say a 51inch Tiger Musky tops the list for one of the biggest fish we've caught in Utah during the past 2007 season. Looking forward to the 2008 fishing experience. :wink: :wink:

Holy mother of all flyfishing porn batman! I had to get a towl to wipe off my keyboard that was such a nice fish and we all know I am the resident fish porn junkie! I caught about the range of .45 this year, only because I fished about every weekend from April til Sept and a bunch in October and November. I seem to have the big fish number days while floating the feathers but my larger fish come from the lakes. Now that I am becoming an ICEHOLE that number could increase. When fishing with my buddies I have become imfamous for the Pea**** dozen. When I catch a dozen fish in a day I quit counting. I think the panfish guys would have to be in the lead for most fish caugh 100 pearch days on the ice happen. With the exception of one smallmouth all of my fish were trout this year. Hopefully that will change this year, I am going to try some bass, and maybe fatbass will show me the wipers, and still looking to find someone to take me catfishing. To date I have 0 fish in 08, maybe this weekend I can change that!
