Flaming Gorge Smallmouth Transplant

Even with the challenging afternoon winds, we were able to beat the old record of 1,430 by collecting and relocating a total of 1,445 bass in about 7-hours. The average size was 8.27 inches and 0.25 lbs (goal less than 12-inches). There was a total of 58 participants in 20 boats, from multiple groups including (but not limited to) the Wyoming Bass Federation and Nation, Utah Bass Federation and Nation, Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, US Forest Service, WGFD, UDWR, Dedicated Hunters, and volunteer anglers that just wanted to help support the fishery.

Thanks to Dave Richter, Bubba Oneill and Bubba's Mother-in-law for all the drinks and lunch from Jimmy John's and Brad Tribby for the raffle and prizes to kick off the event.

Shady Rays

Doing a little public land exploring and giving these Shady Rays sunglasses a test drive. These ice blue polarized lenses seem like a good all-around choice for an outdoor lifestyle. Plus, the wood finish is a classy touch. Can’t wait to get these out on the water in the spring.

Not only are they great sunglasses, but every order of Shady Rays provides 11 meals to Feeding America as well, with over 3.6 million meals provided to date! I love supporting brands that give a little something to the community, whether it’s in the outdoor space or the broader mainstream.

Wyoming Conservation License Plate

They’re here!! Follow this link below to get your Wyoming Wildlife Conservation license plate!

Proceeds from the sales of these plates go directly to building and improving wildlife corridors, crossings and game dances along Wyoming’s highways. State legislator Stan Blake led the charge on this one, along with Muley Fanatics, and tremendous support from Wyoming’s sportsmen and women. 

The "Public Land Owner" T-shirt that I'm wearing is available here: Backcountry Hunters & Anglers.
