Snapshot of the Week: April 4, 2015

In preparation for a bass fishing tournament, Brooks went to fish a secret location in Utah county that he’d heard about. Brooks chucked a spinnerbait near a bush and this huge bucketmouth clobbered it. After a very exciting fight Brooks was able to land this 23 inch long, 9.5 pound hen that is just shy of the state record. After snapping some photos, he released her to swim another day.

Vaughn lives in Highland at the mouth of American Fork Canyon. He says these guys can often be seen hanging out near his home. This nice ram even came down further to inspect the bushes in a neighbors yard.

While ice fishing Strawberry a few weeks ago, Layne caught this nice cutthroat. Set it down to re-bait his line when he heard a loud whoosh of air behind him and turned just in time to see this golden eagle stealing his catch. The bird dropped the fish, once it realized it was in the slot and Layne was able to grab his camera and get a few pictures as it came back for another try. An experience he won’t soon forget.

Each year the Butterfield boys gather their fishing gear and head into the cold to see who can catch the big one! The biggest this trip was this beautiful 24 inch cutt, followed by a 23 inch fish. Lacey says, the weather was cold, but with fishing like this, it was well worth it.

But our winner tonight was out for a Sunday drive and stumbled upon a huge herd of wild mustangs. Becky and her husband live out near Dugway and decided to take their side by side for a ride. Becky says this huge herd of wild horses was running right at them. She grabbed her phone and began recording some video of the herd as they thundered pass. Becky says the experience was pretty amazing, the highlight of their ride and she can’t stop talking about it. Well Becky, here’s something to help you remember your ride and the horses, our big prize for having….the snapshot of the week.
