Lake Sturgeon on a fly rod from a float tube. I think I need a chase for this one. I have figured out the Sturgeon on a fly rod part, now I just need to talk someone into volunteering to do the chase boat part.

Break the rest of the Walleye records.

Poke em, you'll have to snag that paddle fish, I've accidentally done it. Don't expect to land it on anything smaller than a ten weight.

Me? I want to catch fish... A lot of fish, catch a trout in the double digits for weight.

I'm with Mosca, I always miss the early season hatches chasing spring lake run fish. This year I want to perfect my presentation and fish a dry as much as possible.

Fly fishing (and tying) is the first item on my "bucket list" that I'm tackling. Tying class starts January 9. Casting class starts March 27. My goal is to catch both a trout and a smallmouth on my own fly, by season's end.

Default Re: 2012 Goals

In no particular order:
  • Catch a heritage brookie on a particular stream that my mother grew up on. (Heritage waters in MN contain the original wild native strain of brook trout, not the imported eastern strain.)
  • Fish with my father on his old favorite holes
  • Catch a mile-high brookie in the North Carolina Appalachians
  • Break the MN state mooneye record
  • Introduce fly fishing to someone new

We have Mooneye here big enough to do it. I got one back before I knew what the record was and let it go. It's still a bustable record.

- Improve my casting
- Catch my first bass on a fly rod
- Catch a 15" trout (any species)

Pretty basic goals, but this being my 2nd year of fly fishing I figure K.I.S.S. applies.
