Bear River Catfish

We took a day trip up to the Bear River to go fishing.  Boy was it fun!  We found the catfish were biting stinky bait on the bottom, so we caught a bunch of them.  We brought our setlines as well, but didn't have any success with them.  The Bear River is one of 3 or 4 places in Utah you can use a setline and with it being about an hour away, it makes a good place to learn. 
We ended up with 6 fish.  Most of them were about 14 inches long.  The big one of the day (not mine) was 20 inches- a decent fish, but not the biggest I've seen come out of the Bear. 
The fish filleted up nicely and fried up even better!  YUM!
