Fishing Horseshoe Springs is a great way to keep the winter time bass blues from sinking too deep. I headed out for a Friday morning of fishing, and caught a half dozen Largemouth Bass in only a few hours of fishing. They definitely were on the scrawny side, but sometimes just getting that bite feels good.

It was fun to get out, and quadruple the number of bass I caught compared to my first trip. Here’s a link to my previous trip for you to check out as well: https://krakenbass.com/horseshoe-springs-fishing/
The biggest difference from this trip compared to my previous trip was all the green matted vegetation was gone. This had the bass tucked up under the banks tight to the cover. The Horseshoe springs video pretty much sums up the other details of the trip. Feel free to leave any comments below if you have any questions.
One more thing the bass in the feature image, even though it was bleeding like crazy, swam off fine. I hooked him in the bottom lip, and it must of hit a vein or something. I apologize if the site of blood grosses you out. As my dad used to say when I fell and got banged up, “a little bit of blood never hurt anyone.”
The links above and below in this post are affiliate links were you can pick up baits, rod’s, reels, line, and anything else I used to “Krak” some bass on this trip. Krakenbass receives a small percentage of the sales through these links. I only use links to baits, and gear I personally trust and know work. I put these links to make them helpful for you, and not for the small amount I make for the sale of the products. I hope these products can help you “krak” some bass! Thank you for your support.

Hey JB, between Horseshoe and Genola, which is the better spot?
Horseshoe, although I think there may be bigger bass in Genola. You will definitely catch more at Horseshoe though.
Is there much carp in there?
I saw a few. They were pretty big too.
Did you see any type of bait fish around or was it just bass and carp?
There were little baitfish, but couldn’t tell what they were. Probably baby bass or something.
Which is better now, Horseshoe or oquirrah? I am coming over from Colorado to visit grand kids and have cabin fever.
Horseshoe there are a lot of little guys, but you’ll definitely get bites. Get there early in the morning and have fun. Oquirrh is still really cold, so dragging a slow carolina rig on the bottom might work. Let me know how you do if you go!
Horseshoe is 2 hours away and we have a basketball game to watch first. What about Genola Warm Springs?
Good choice! There’s a few in there as well.
Hey JB, just want to give you and your readers a heads up. I went to Genola this morning. Promptly got stopped by a Sherrif Deputy and was told there’s no trespassing allowed anymore. Really sad. The water looked awesome!
Serious bummer! Thanks for the heads up!
Why are they not letting people in there anymore?
From what the Sherrif Deputy told me, all the kids that used to run around there tagging everything and drinking and doing drugs at the abandoned building up above the water caused a big ruckus.
What a bummer.
I just seen you on hooked on utah and you were in tooele? I was wondering where at in tooele was that?
Right here at Horseshoe Springs.
Is your bag of baits still available?
How do I order one
Looks like you got it figured out! Just sent you your bag. Thanks heaps man!
