Default Utah bucket list

My girls and I are trying to catch all the game fish in Utah in the proclamation except the chubs and endangered species. I wish I had a nice poster I could put in my man cave and check them off as we catch them

It's all about seeing new areas and spending time together. If we catch a trophy it's icing.

Tiger trout Lindsay caught hers and I wasn't there to take the photo so she took one of her fish.

Large mouth bass

The hardest part of this challenge is getting my girls on fish. I think it's easy for me to catch them but find its extremely hard for them. Seeing lures snagging the bottom, flying in trees ect is hard for me to see. At least they both know how to tie their own stuff and untangle their own rats nests.

Lake trout
I tossed in one of my wife. She doest like to fish as much as we do but likes to fish for lake trout. I can't find any of my big lake trout photos so this one will have to do. I think Makenzie likes to fish lake trout the most. She's a pole hog.

Kokane
We have caught hundreds of kokanee over the years if not more. We have fished Flaming Gorge one or two weeks a year for as long as my kids have been alive. It's our favorite fish to catch and eat. We always seem to get our limits. However it's hard for me to find any photos of me holding a fish. Maybe it's because they all look the same and I never have time to photo them because I'm to busy unhooking everyone else's fish.

Blue gill

Lindsays says these are her favorite fish to catch. Nonstop Action for kids. I started my girls on these fish and we still target them once in awhile.

If I don't have to leave town for work this week we will check of the white bass. Makenzie is all that's left for this challenge.

White bass accomplished
Makenzie finally caught one.
Lindsay and I caught 6 to 10 each.
For the fish to count they have to pick their lure out, tie it on and cast it all by their selves. This is hard for me to sit and watch because when the fishing is hot I want to catch them. However I know the best chances are your first cast in a new hole and makenzie is still struggling on accuracy.
