2687. I didn't quite hit the 3,000 mark I was hoping to get to, spent all of December trying to get a big buck that never did get close enough :(

Was a really good numbers year but the big fish were lacking with the hot weather and lack of rain all year. The year started fast when my brother in law and I decided to test some of our new fishing gear at a neighborhood pond New Year's Day and I caught this one and 30 others despite partial ice coverage on the pond.

I hit 100 the second day of February and landed my first fish over 5 of the year later that week.

A trip with two buddies in April was my best numbers day of the year when I put well over 100 smallmouth in the boat.

Didn't hit the 5lb mark again until April

Number 1,000 on the heels of a 82 fish day on April 30th, a day after my goal to hit that mark on my birthday.

My biggest fish of the year came in May from a 30 acre state lake on a homemade black and blue chatterbait and weighed 6.10.

Lots of largemouth over 4 and smallies over 3 but no true monsters. 

My big smallie of the year was 3.37 on December 5th and was one of my last bass of the year.

I remember you said you were going to count this year. I thought for SURE you were going to make it to 3,000 seeing how fast you came out of the gate !

 

Congrats!  :thumbsup:

Thanks, I'm pretty sure I would have if I'd kept fishing in December and if I hadn't switched more to fishing for big ugly fish on the river when it got really hot out. I wish I had the patience to write down all the details like you do but I just don't have it. Thinking I may just keep track of how many keeper sized fish (>15") I catch this year rather than just overall numbers.

Wow man.  100 fish days.  I can't even fathom that.  I'd be happy to catch 10 in a day.  Then again, Im fishing from the bank on small lakes that only have a handful of spots where you can get to the water and usually for only a couple hours.  But still, I gotta give you props...Congrats on one heck of a year!

My dog gave his stamp of approval on that one...Truman knows his bass, he is my dog afterall :). Good post Clayton. I've never tried to tally a whole years catch...that's dedication. 


Yes, my handle was "flash"...quick for a 30 something white guy just didn't have the same ring to it. -Sam

Actually figured out one of the more productive patterns of the year with you. Also got a picture of you with a rare 18" keeper Melvern smallie  :eyebrows:

I just counted total numbers of largemouth, smallmouth, and spots but I have a lot of it documented through pictures and I can remember a lot of info on each catch.

You did better than I did for 2012. I was too wimpy on some of those very windy days and hot summer days and stayed home.

Only caught 2360 bass for 74 fishing days.

That's an average of 32 fish per trip! I think you're being modest.

Way to go man! A great year of bass fishing. I am more than a little jealous of those numbers. I am going to have to try harder this year!
