Friday Fishing Stories: Smallmouth Fishing in Idaho

in fishing •  5 months ago

Most of my family lives in California, but I have an uncle who moved out to Idaho, so I have a handful of cousins and a large numbers of nieces and nephews out there. I do not get the chance to visit out there too often, but whenever there is a wedding or some good excuse to make the trip, I try to take advantage of it and go, always sneaking in a fishing session or two.

I love exploring new areas and fishing new bodies of water. On my last trip, I got in touch with one of my uncles friends who had a basic aluminum fishing boat, and snuck out on the water for half a day.

I went out with one of my other uncles who also came out for the wedding we went to, and used various plastic grubs and worms targeting largemouth and smallmouth bass. We ended up catching about 10 smallmouth bass, and a couple of perch, but got skunked on the largemouth. We also did hook into one pike, which came off at the boat, so I wasn’t able to get a picture. The smallmouth weren’t large, but they were fun to try to find and catch. Here are a few pictures:




I hope another family member that lives in Idaho gets married soon… I am anxious to get back and do some more fishing up there, as it was beautiful in the summer!

Appreciate you stopping by!

Idaho is where I caught my largest fish ever. Northern Pike, just over 10 lbs and over 30 inches. Also caught some nice small mouth as well.


That is an awesome pike! They are fun to catch for sure, and a big one like that would put up quite a battle!


It was the first time I ever got tired reeling in a fish. It took a few minutes. :)

Great looking smallie! That's some fun fishing right there

Beautiful day on the lake. The fish aren't he biggest, but when you're just out there for catch and release, catching anything helps you feel like you're doing something. Then again, if you're not catching, you can just relax.

It's nice to see another one of your blog posts. It looks like fishing, family and BBQ hit some of the top things that you care about.

Wow! such a wonderful fish photography D :) friend @brian.rrr .really your photography is awesome. I love your post. Thank you for sharing with us.

When I fished in Arizona there was this catfish right infront of me and it was huge so I stuck my bait near the hole and he came out and snatched it. He was also very delicious.

Wow! this fish is looking so beautiful Really I love your photography. Thanks for share

It's good that you enjoy the spaces you have with your family to the maximum and you can combine it with your passion for fishing.

Although full of pride to catch a big fish, in the end it is important how much fun you had and did what you like.

It shows that your passion for fishing goes beyond a hobby, it is great to be in touch with what you like and more if you feel so comfortable, as you tell us. In addition to adventurous spirit, I'm sure you'll have many more lucky days like this one.
