With the upcoming season what will you do differently?

How will you try to inprove?

lures, areas, anything.....

 

For me my goals are to:

 

1) fish heavy in the spring

2) gain confidence with tins, bombers, and metal lips

3) rig my own eels/skin some toosmile.gif

4) try chunking........

 

Lets hear it!!

Last season it was building up confidence with bucktails. But I didn't put the time in, and didn't catch any fish on them. I'm done with them, even though I didn't give them a fair shot.

 

This year I'm looking to learn the nuances of different plugs/lures. I also want to throw more eels, becuase I didn't use them much last season. It will be my sophomore year at the ditch university, so still a ton to learn there. Exploring new spots that I scouted this winter. Getting in more trips before sunrise. The list goes on and on.

introduce 5 more people to the sport of surf fishing. And more importantly teach them to enjoy it and respect it as i do.

I don't know...maybe expand the number of species I catch, both within this region as well as with a July trip to southern FL...and to do as much of this on the fly as possible.

 

Every year, I always claim I'll take my first bonito on the fly, yet I've still only caught them on spinning gear (although I do get their bigger brothers - albies - on the fly with decent regularity).

 

Lastly, also in the fly fishing mode, I concentrate on bigger bass on the fly rod this year - I'll still get my spring schoolie kick on clousers...but once I get my fill, I want to put away the little clousers and start throwing some bigger stuff at these fish.

 

But realistically, with my summer schedule of school, a vacation to FL, then back to school after a short (month) break, I just hope to get some fishing time in - If I stick to fly fishing and can bag a 40"+ striper, a bluefish over 12 lbs, and a few albies, I will not feel let down even if my time on the water is diminished. I'll probably only fish with great frequency (to where you wonder about my prioritiesredface.gif ) for a couple of weeks in the late spring, while in FL and for a couple of weeks at the end of Sept/beginning of Oct then make sure I'm up to par with both work and my studies aside from that.

LEarnt he art of needles. Its been the same for the past 3 years, and i gave up on it most years. This past season in the fall i finally gave it a real go and got a few decent fish. This year im going to make a couple trips with only needles, and a danny.
