#12214, "Goals for the new Year 2014"


  

          

Last year I aimed for a 30lb bag on Clear Lake and a 10lber on video. We made 29lbs in the ABA, but didn't quite crack the 30lb mark. Twice we hooked the fish to do it but they escaped video

Fishing with my older son Derek, we landed a 9lb 15.5oz bass on video (couldn't make it up if I tried). Don't need the video to remember the moment. We fished for 30 minutes that day and got the one bite, it was a cool deal.

So with no goals accomplished but still a fun year, here we are in 2014. My goals this year are to find a sweet spot to catch bluegill or crappie with the kids. Go bowfishing at night and actually hit a fish with an arrow. Catch a 6lb bass somewhere (hey it's Louisiana) And carve the time to go fishing with old friends and new ones.

Memory lane:

The years are going by faster and faster! its crazy. I encourage everyone whose been talking about doing something great for years to make it happen this year. Time is going by fast!

Last years goals:
A 10+ LMB in middle america
A 20lb+ Masheer
A gounch on rod and reel!

1 - ha. I fished middle america twice last year for a total of one gar and one bowfin, and some crappies.

2 I did get one 10+ mahseer and one about 9 on a triple trout which was awesome. Probly the first ever Mahseer caught on a swimbait. They dont get used in the Himalayas much

3. Tried for a few hours, but they are elisive. Maybe this year.

2014:

22+ limit of smallmouth
Goonch in the HImalayas on rod and reel
Publish the descriptions of the new fish species I discovered in Bhutan!

Highlights 2013:
Swimbait Mahseer:


Annual Team 85 trip:


New species of Catfish from Bhutan:

I'm boycotting posting my goals on Calfishing as I have basically had the same goal of a 10+ every year with no result. So nope, I wont even make it a goal, you hear that fishing gods I'm NOT trying to catch a double digit bass this year. Nope, not trying.

Lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what have-yous

Last year I went 1 for 4, but got my DD which was such a cool thing to happen. Going to build on it this year:

- Break the 10lb mark again.

- Qualify for the Rayovac National Championship on Wheeler (43rd at Havasu gave a decent start)

- Become better with my electronics
