Any species, any size (not just bass)? You're going to have to go well north of 199 before I can answer this poll, and I think it's been a slow year :)

I guessed 110-119, but I honestly don't know. If it was just bass I'd have a better idea since I just started targeting bass exclusively. I'm going to guess my number is low, but I'll be conservative :D

It only let me allow 20 replies. I changed the poll to bass only in hopes to get a more accurate poll.

 I understand that. Personally I enjoy keeping track. It gives me a goal and motivates me to catch more fish than the year before.

seems like it would just add more pressure to me, part of why i fish is to escape the pressures of daily everyday life. i dont want to feel pressured to catch more fish than the year before, i dont want to feel pressured to feel like i have to go fishing more than i do go. i always want to get better but i dont want to compete with myself either. and honestly, most of the time i dont care to let it affect me if i catch fish or not, its about so much more to me than that...others may feel different, as you say it motivates you, its just not something im into now or see myself getting into. if it helps you become a better angler by keeping records of your fishing days then thats great, as for me i just choose to work off my memory and instincts as i always have in the past...

I've been three times and guess I have caught close to 200 fish .The vast majority between 12 and 15 inches  ,and only    11 over fifteen inches . I just know some good spots on a small reservoir . Norman Deep Little N has been the biggest producer so far .

I understand that, that's essentially the same reason why I don't fish tournaments.

Don't attempt to keep track of #'s. Do keep a log but that is just to record specifics about date, water temp, general weather, and unique and/or significant events. I generally lose track somewhere between 6 and 12 no way to even guess for bass this year. Experienced my wife catching her 1st, 2nd, and 3rd bass ever and also watched her rookie a nice one (between 5 and 6lbs.). I'm guessing I taught her well, especially the rookie move, I have that one down :huh:

If I had to put a # on it,  183.428 :Idontknow:

Total guess. The vote options are too specific for everyone outside of those that keep exact track.

0-49
50-99
100-199
200-299
300-399
400-499
500-rockstar

I am keeping count this year.........for no other reason than to just know, and because I never have kept track before.

As of right now, I have been fishing 51 times in 2016, I average about 3-4 hours of fishing per trip, and have caught over 600 bass.

I have no idea how many Pike, rockbass, crappies, bluegills and other misc. fish I have caught while bass fishing..........100's if not more.

I do know I have caught ZERO walleyes, carp or trout LOL.

Most of my bass have been caught about 6 different baits/presentations:

A jig.either flipped, swam, or dragged

A 5" wacky rigged Yum dinger

A Frog

A suspending jerkbait

A a texas rigged craw/creature bait

And a 4" or 6" worm on a drop shot

There have been a few misc. days when I have caught them on Chatterbaits, blade baits, lipless crank baits, shaky heads, a t-rigged worm, and carolina rigs

One of my staples..........a squarebill has SUCKED for me this year. Hopefully the late summer/fall bite on those will be better.

I have not done a whole lot of "finesse fishing" this year with down sized versions of my normal stuff like 4" dingers, small creature baits,etc...but those days are coming
