What's Your Fishing Bucket List?

Recommended Posts

Saw this writing prompt on another website and thought it was a neat idea. List 10 things you want to do (fishing related) before you die. Here's what I came up with:

1. Make and sell my own lures.

2. Take someone less fortunate than myself fishing - anywhere they want to go.

3. Catch a fish/shark that's the same size as me (either in length or weight).

4. Catch a "Grand Slam" - Walleye, Pike, Lake Trout and Arctic Greyling.

5. Place in the top 10 in a Bassmasters Open or FLW tournament.

6. Fish with a professional angler.

7. Give a random angler a bunch of tackle (rods, reels, lures, a whole outfit).

8. Buy a brand new completely custom Ranger Boat.

9. Fly fish in salt water.

10. Kayak fish a Louisiana marsh for Redfish and Speckled Trout.
