: This 28 inch 7lb tiger out of Current Creek hit while I was casting my 2nd pole. My fiance was freaking out because it almost took my pole in the lake. After an almost 10 minute fight I finally landed it. My biggest catch to date. Caught on June 10 2017.. Photo submitted by Mark Chamberlain on Jun 17, 2017 07:31 PM

Yuba Pike: My grandpa invited me to tag along with he and his buddy to go and fish for northern pike at yuba reservoir. I had never caught a pike before so I was super exited. 30 minutes after we started fishing I had this pike follow my bait right to the boat and watched him slam it right next to us! 36 inches and about 15-16 pounds! Definitely my biggest fish!. Photo submitted by Easton Roundy on Jun 14, 2017 03:50 PM

Lucky Laker at Flaming Gorge.: My hunting partner, Scott Syme, and I were in Vernal last week for the Western Grand Trap Shoot. In between shooting we were going to Matt Warner, Flaming Gorge, Red Fleet, and Twin Ashley reservoirs to fish. We would get up at 4:30 am, drive for an hour or more, fish for a few hours, then back to the Vernal Rod and Gun club to shoot. After shooting we would drive back to another reservoir for more fishing till after dark. On Thursday the 8th, we drove to Flaming Gorge to fish from the shore for rainbows and smallmouths. We both had poles out with bait. I had green Gulp on a size 14 treble and 4 lb test leader. Scott had the same setup with a red and orange sparkle powerbait. I also had a 2nd pole with a mepps that I was catching small rainbows and smallmouths. Scott had a blue and pink 1/8 oz Kastmaster mostly catching rainbows. We were catching quite a few small fish when Scott hooked into something big. He fought it slowly because of the 4lb test and after about 15 minutes the fish broke off without us ever seeing what it was. About an hour later I glanced at my bait pole and saw it was bent pretty good. I grabbed it, set the hook, and it didn't move. I thought I was snagged up so I messed around trying to get it loose, when I noticed the line starting to move. I played the fish for about 20 minutes on that light leader before finally landing it. While admiring the fish and taking pictures we noticed that Scotts Kastmaster that he had lost earlier was hanging from the corner of the fish's mouth! I had caught the same fish he had lost earlier. We measure the fish at 32 inches and estimate it weighed about 15 lbs or so. Not the biggest but a cool story for my first trip to Flaming Gorge. .

Big bear down: Talmage shot this massive bear in Montana on a do it yourself hunt. Public land, His Dad and he spotted this bear from a distance and stalked in on him. They were able to get within a 100 yard and Talmage missed the first shot but made a perfect follow up shot that brought the massive bore down. The amazing part about this story is that Talmages Mom said he would have to maintain his 4.0 average all year long to miss a full week of school, to go on the hunt... He did it... Grades are out...4.0 His father has been hunting in Montana for many years and this is one of the biggest bears his Dad has seen taken.... Pretty awesome experience for a 13 year old kid. It took 4 of us to pack the hide and meat and gear out to the truck.. Talmage packing the hide. pic included. . Photo submitted by Talmage Cook on Jun 12, 2017 12:46 PM
