#3521, "Goals for "this" new year of 2004"


  

          

I dunno' if I am the only dummy who got thrown off here, but I read halfway down the thread "Goals for the new year" thinking this was a "new" post...... and I'm thinking, "Geez, a bunch of the goals you guys are talking about, you already did this year"..... Why aren't you raising the bar ?

So anyway, I finally got down to mine and figured it out. Amazingly, the only goal I set, was the one I thought would be the toughest, that is, I did get my one bass over 17 lbs.

So basically, since I did not meet my other goals, I am simply going to go with my goals for 2003, but upgrade my "one bass over 17" to, "one over 19, which in fact, will be a new lake record, no matter where I catch it (up here in Nor Cal), also a Nor Cal record (unofficially, since there is really no official list) as well as a new PB.

So, my goals for 2004 are:
3 double digit bass in one day.
15 lb'er on night crawlers (did get a 14.1 this year on crawlers)
50 lb five fish limit.
30 bass over 10 lbs for the year. (good luck !)
One bass over 19'lbs

Oh, and aside from bass, a freaking keeper Sturgeon (first) then an over sized one (72" plus) !

Peace,
Fish

PS, Congrats to you guys who met so many of your goals in 2003 !!! Great job ! Hope 2004 is even better !

With me being over here on the east coast, my goals have to be set lower than that. But I plan to spend about 80-90 days on the water this summer on a pretty good lake, so my goals should be respectable. I want to beat my PB of 14.4 by 1.8 lbs. That's the number one goal. I would also like to dominate my local club tournaments and place in the top 3. But that's secondary. I would like to catch a 5 fish 45 lb. limit in the early summer. I would like 7 over 10 lbs. And 80 over 5 lbs.

*16.2 lber (In my dreams!)
*45 lb limit
*80 fish over 5 lbs
*Top 3 in Bass Club
*7 over 10 lbs
*Put two of my friends on their first double digit
*Catch an 8 lb. Spot
*Catch an 8 lb. Smallmouth

All right it goes....


1.A new PB (Over 14+ would be nice)
2.Stick a double digit off my Generic trout!
3.Get a 35+ limit would be nice.
4.Learn how to bed fish better.
5.Fish more!!!!
6.Stick a 25lb.+ Halibut
7.Finnally get that 30lb.+ Salmon!

All in all 2003 was my best year yet. I asked for one double digit and ended up with 3. Maybe if I say I want 10 then maybe I would end up with 30! LOL!!!

Great fishing to all in 2004!

Figure out a pattern to catch large size non-spawning san diego bass. Just one pattern that I can repeat more than once will suffice.

I like Brian's goal the best so far SD sucks

My goal this year is to catch a lake record. I don't care really what lake it's on, I'd just like to have a lake record somewhere.

I have a feeling this year I will catch fewer fish than ever, but I know if I gun for it, I'll get at least a few really big bites at some point. Just gotta hope they stay on the hook ( knocking heavily on wood ).

My other goal for the year is to keep stoking the fire on the website and offering up what I hope is some interesting and unique info.

I wish everyone the best of luck in their goals for the year.

My goals are:
1: catch more than 1 10 lbr this year
2: To catch a 10 lbr NOT in late winter/spring
3: Get out on the water more
4: Get another 13+
5: Catch 2 10 lbrs in one trip.

4&5 would be BIG bonuses

I guess I will keep it simple.

#1-Pound the hell out of every body of water I can during the spawn and use up every vacation day I have doing it.

#2-Top my 15 lb. PB the only way I want to catch it...sight fishing.

Anything else will be gravy...LOL.

Are you serious ??? Don't get me wrong...... I love bedfishing, and I'm likely to pound the heck out of them with every day of my vacation too.......
But I intend to pound the heck out of them until about November also, with any technique that is legal, sporting, and produces.

Anyway, there are a large percentage of bass anglers who do not have any problem with sight fishing, but there are enough of them that do have a problem with it, that those that don't, are not usually quite so open about it......

Personally, even as much as I like bedfishing, I really just enjoy catching big bass on any / all methods possible, at any / all times of the year.

Peace,
Fish

Oh yah Chris, dead serious. We all have our little fortay (...not sure if that is correct spelling..LOL) and sight fishing is mine. I would rather sight fish than do anything else, just what "I" like to do, even if there is a better bite going on at the time. It's suppose to be fun, and that is my fun, a pure addiction that sends my adrenaline pumping like nitrous through a big block. Don't get me wrong, I like a big bite on anything, especially a reaction bait, but man there is nothing that twists my heart into a knot like rolling up on a whale that looks gamey.
