How many did you catch in 2017?

Recommended Posts

Me and a buddy keep track every year and I wanted to see if anyone else knew how many they caught for the year.

 

Personally I finished at 315 bass of various species (300+ LMBs with a sprinkling of smallies, rock, and spotted bass).

 

*Disclaimer* I fish mostly golf courses, and small ponds so most of those were in the 1 - 2.5lbs range.....not many lunkers at all.

 

How'd you guys do in 2017?

I don't know total numbers for 2017, but I do remember my best bass fishing trip of my life happened in 2017.....

 

I broke my PB 5 times in four days...  The five that broke my previous PB that trip were:  12lb 8oz, 9lb 4oz, 9lb 4oz, 8lb and 8lb.  I had a 34lb 8oz bag one day, then a 35lb bag the next day and then the final day I caught just one single fish the whole day, but it was a 12lb 8oz gorilla!!! 

 

I'm smiling ear to ear just typing this and remembering that trip!

I culled 150 bass out of my lake this year to thin the herd so the fish's average size would improve. I'm sure I released at least as many as I kept , and that doesn't include fish caught elsewhere. So , at least 300 bass. 

That doesn't include other species that I don't track at all.

It was a fairly good year for big fish. 

 

(not if you compare to 18ranger ) but I got one over 8 , and one over 7. several more over 4.

I would only be guessing at 200 bass, 10 pike, 10 walleye, and well over 1000 panfish

Definitely less than previous years. Simply didn't get out

as much... No numbers, don't always keep track, so they'd

be inaccurate.

No clue as to the total numbers but it was a pretty good year.

Here's a few.

Notable fish we're a 5 and a 6.5 (my pb) and a lot under 4 lbs. A handful of rock bass and a handful of smallmouth.

4,627 total fish, mostly largemouth, but also some other species as well.  I also caught 4 of my top 5 biggest bass this year, and my pb flathead of 45 pounds, on an 8 pound mono leader no less.

Crappie, sunfish, and largemouth bass totaled 182.  It was kind of an off year.  No muskie, smallies, or spots in 2017.

  Total Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4
2017 Total 376 110 95 71 100
2017 Total Over 1 Pound 48 15 10 10 13
Average Fish/Day 2.10 2.00 1.94 2.09

2.44

 

This was the first year I kept a fishing log.  Included in the summary above is by PB @ 7-4.  I typically only get to fish for an hour during my lunch break so the Fish / Day numbers are actually Fish / Hour.

 

It was a good year!!

I kept track one year and found it to be more than I wanted to do. I caught 2,776 bass that year even with it being a slower than average year due to extreme drought and not fishing for bass during most of July and August.

Dang man that's an average of 12.6 bass per day. You must have 100 fish days. 

 

I don't keep count but it was more than last year and that's alright by me.

Haven't hit 100 in one day yet (bass anyways), but I did get 99 once last year.  I fish about 240-260 days a year (mostly shorter 2-4 hour trips) which makes a larger than average number of fish very attainable.  Finesse helps to;)

875 for 2017, a down year due to less trips and a lower catch rate

 

Edit - actually, I forgot to include the bass I caught in the spring on a trip to Georgia & Texas (63) as well as the ones during our summer vacation (54).  Adding those in bumps the total to 992

I broke 500 by April. So I'll say over 1,000 for sure. It was a great year, but I cannot wait to see what 2018 brings!

Right with ya! 

 

A rough estimate would be around 100: LMB, SMB, pickerel, assorted perch, and a handful of trout.

Not as many largemouth as usual but a whole bunch of nice 3-4 lb smallmouth. Thousands of white bass and a good many bluegill crappie and catfish. Boat loads of accidental drum and a dozen or so striped bass

It was an inverse bell-shaped curve for me.  Lots in the Spring and fewer in the summer and then lots in the Fall again.  I can't quantify how many, really.  Not enough because I didn't get to fish as much as I would have liked.

I'll have to keep track this year, I have no clue. I know its a lot between 2 of us in the boat we have broken 100 fish a day, I know its in the high hundreds. A slow non tournament day is around 20 to 30 bass a really slow day might be around 15 fish a day but we usually break 30 a day to 50 especially in the spring I'd say we average 30 to 40 a day.
