Catch 22

How Many Days A Year Do You Fish

Recommended Posts

I don`t keep a log because I worry that my wife might find it :eyebrows:

I fish about 240 days a year +- Even though I get out a lot I usually don`t fish those crushing 12 hr days much anymore.After driving 3 hrs I used to feel that I had to get my money`s worth.I moved much closer to my water of choice,  so now I average about 6 hrs on the water.I fish tide waters a lot so I may leave any time  day or night..

I do travel some long trips so I usually have a buddy along to  share costs and driving time.

 

Being retired is great.

 

How many days do you fish.

When the ice melts before bass season opens I'll go 2-3 times a week.  When bass season opens, I try to go as much as I can when the wife and kids allow me too.  I'd say around 100 times roughly.

I probably put somewhere between 130-175 days on the water and average around five hours an outing I actually put more time on the water when I was working. I've slowed down in more tan one way.

A whole whopping 21 days in 2014.

 

Three spent walking on the water for bluegills/perch.  Four days trolling for salmon/trout.  One day dragging crawler harnesses for walleye.

 

The rest were spent actually targeting bass.

 

It's got to get better some day.

7 days a week year round.  Fish saltwater in the morning and freshwater in the afternoon.  I could count on 2 hands the times I missed last year.

When the water is not frozen I will try and get out about once a week.

I average four days a week, three to four hours each day from the end of April to the end of October.

Almost every day but only a few hours a day.

I'm about a 100 times a year guy. I fish all year round and in between work and family I usually get out around 2 times a week. I fish a lot before or after work so I don't skip a beat.

Since I retired I'm lucky to get 3 days a month.  When I was 40 years younger and working two jobs, I fished at least 3 times a week.

Most of the things that take up my fishing time are really self inflicted, time consuming projects and church.

Once this kitchen remodel is done, I owe myself about a month of fishing non stop.

Even though my wife and I are in our 70's we both say we need a full time job so we can get some rest.

I always fish at least once a week, all year round. If I pull my boat up to Delavan (about an hour) I usually make a day of it. In the winter I go more often, but don't fish as long.

Once we have open water, I go out quite a bit. 

 

But the bass might report that I'm only actually "fishing" about half the time . . . .

I made 2 casts today at 6:30 am, does that count, lol?  Scored a nice snook on my first cast, tossed again and decided it was too chilly, I went home.

I fish every weekend year round, sometimes both days and sometimes only one of the days.  So I'd say I average around 75 times a year and anywhere from 12 hours per trip to just a couple.

I fish about 5 days a week in the summer... I'm in school in the spring:( summer and fall and winter so I probably only fish about 1 day every 2 weeks sometimes more especially in the spring.

At least 300 days a year. Weekends from the boat in the Everglades. Weekdays from the bank after work. I am surrounded by a bunch of small lakes in the 20 to 40 acre size, all with a good supply of bass. Its great to live in south Florida!

Definitely not enough.  We (my dad and I) try to get out at least once a week.  I am lucky enough with work where I get 3 day weekends, so we are able to get out mostly on Fridays.

Some of the numbers you guys are saying are insane (200, 300)... I can't imagine actually fishing that much even though I would if I could. It is awesome that you do but the sheer amount is hard for me to fathom.

 

I fish from late march to early November and go once a week most of the time but maybe twice a week a third of the time. So likely between 30-40 trips. These are all trips I consider to be a minimum of 5 hours of fishing upwards of 12 depending on the outing so an hour of pond fishing up the street probably add another 10.

I may fish 300+ but I don't do it like I used too.  I would cover the keys up to Hobe Sound for inshore fishing, go all kinds of places to do freshwater and get off shore couple of times I week.  I stay pretty local now.
