Fishing Report: Bucket Mouth Fishing in Southeast Idaho

- posted by Chris Jacobson

Travis had to miss an important store meeting to go fishing. So we thought it was only fair for him to bring back pictures & tell us about it! Here's what he had to say...

Chasing the bass in southeast Idaho. From daybreak until just after noon, I caught 30 bucket mouths, give or take... more give than take. They all ranged in size from about 2 pounds to over 5 pounds.

I caught a handful on topwaters, and the rest on soft plastics.

Travis's Idaho Fishing Spots

Southeast Idaho offers plenty of opportunity to chase these fun-to-catch fish. There are several reservoirs around Malad and Preston that hold good numbers of largemouth bass. If you live in Box Elder, Cache, or even Weber counties, they aren't that far away.

For those of you in Franklin and Oneida counties, they are practically right in your back yard!

Lauren’s Summer Adventure: Exploring Oregon

Adventure is in the eye of the beholder. There are many adventures around every corner. An adventure can be as simple as a picnic with the family, to something more complex, such as a vacation or a new living location. We can choose whether what we are going through is an “adventure” or something else.

This summer, my adventure included spending time with my family while in Oregon USA. We were able to go on a family trip for the first time in 3 or 4 years. It was great to reminisce about old times and build new memories together. We were able to see some beautiful sights and enjoy the surroundings of nature.

We were able to go zip lining.

I loved walking along the beach for miles and miles. It was amazing to see the vibrant green color, and the enormous size of the Redwood Trees.

The highlight of this adventure was finally being able to see Crater Lake. It was a beautiful sight that will not soon be forgotten.

Everything from seeing these beautiful sights, to having our car overheat and the AC not work, made this trip the perfect Summer Adventure.

This Oregon adventure was a well timed event, because just as life seemed to be getting settled, it threw us another adventure.

No matter where life takes us, we have to embrace the adventure. I am so happy that I got this time with my family and was able to make those memories that will last a lifetime.
