#3547, "The annual goals for the new year post"


  

          

Well it's almost that time of year to think about that goals for next year, so lets hear them

Last year my goal was to get a lake record somewhere and it didn't happen... in fact I never felt like I was even close really, so that's still my goal for this year. My other goal this year is to win a team tournament somewhere besides Don Pedro.

Good Luck Rob!

My main goal is also left over from last year:
Really would like to set a new personal best for tuna, 150+ would do but I really want to break the 200 lb. mark. Probably should have been on a long range boat this fall.

Making the top 10 in the SWBA (Salt Water Bass Anglers) series is also a primary goal.
A challenging one at that considering the level of competition, the small (but growing) amount of time I actually dedicate to calico fishing & the unfamiliar waters the series covers. Last year Karl (OkieBug) & I finished 11th even after winning the only event on my home waters.

The past 3 years our season has really revolved around the Wester Outdoor News - Saltwater Series, which has served us well. Finishing 6th 2 yrs. ago, 1st last year & 2nd by only 3 points this year which was tough to swallow. We don't want to let that happen again this year but from what I understand the series is going through a major overhaul & will be a different animal next year so I have no idea what to expect at this point.

Good Luck to all on your individual goals!

Well, I had three goals for this year (2005) and I only accomplished one of them, but it was the one I wanted most. Never did win a tourny from the backseat, and I didnt get my friend on a 10 pounder (but he didnt commit to it, so its not my fault:P ). I did get my teener though, so its all good.

My goals for the upcoming year are to get 10 bass over 10 (something I easily should have done this year, but hey, I learned sooo much by losing those fish), weigh in a 10 plus in a tourny, stick a 15 plus, win a team tourny, and somehow make progress towards buying a tournament bass boat.

Wow, that seems like alot.

I still want to get a 6+ on a frog, and a new PB on a swimbait(9.75 is my current PB). Added to this years list is that I want to learn Folsom Lake (consistently catch fish) since it is so close.

Lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what have-yous

Well.... Last year I set a ridiculous goal that I could never meet so that I'd be constantly challenged to keep fishing. My goal was to stick 10 over 10 and have one of them be over 15.
Its been about 12 months now and to my astonishment I landed 10 over 10 with the largest going just over 17! I must say, its been a few months now since I met my goal and I still can't believe how much I've learned in the last year and I want to thank everyone who has taught me, answered questions, or fished with me! This year was awesome!

Next year.... I want 20 over 10, plain and simple. I believe I hooked them this year and I just made mistakes. (that's a part of learning.) On top of that I'd like to get another over 15 and if possible, I want it to come out of a big lake (Folsom, Pedro, or Berryessa). This year I was very consistant with my tourney fishing but I was consistantly near the top, not at the top. I want to WIN a bigger event this year. Its a lot to ask but its not unreachable!

Matt

I want more time tuna fishing (like overnight to 3 day stuff) this season and better tuna fishing than last year's sucky-ness, a LMB in the teens, and more time on the water. Not hard to please over here

Bassfly,
I was checking out your gallery, those are some great looking cutthroat trout Getting a 10lb brown is like getting a 15+ bass, and doing it on a fly is even harder. Good luck!

My goal is lame! Only because I have been really big bass deprived living in the mountians. My goal for january is to get my first fish on a hudd! I havent even had a for sure bite on one! My overall goal for the year is to take home some checks in a few tournies and get back into my grove that i was in in 2000-2003 before I left. I have caught one 10+ in the last 3 years, really sad to me. So basically I don't have a numeric goal, but rather just to get back into my grove and hopefulyl get a few 10+ bass this year.

Taylor:

I don't mean to be tight lipped about where I'm fishing, but....

I'm going to be focusing a ton on Lanier after June, in 2006 to prepare for the Sept. Bassmaster. Jan-June in 2006, I'm really gonna be focused on getting a big bite--swimbait and bed fishing. I'm hopeful to get a fish over 11.0 in 2006 here.

Sucks being a really young guy. Y'all are out fishin' tourneys and kickin' bass a$$, while I'm still building up my collection. Anyways, I have a couple new goals this year:

1. Master rip baits, cranks and blades
2. Improve my dropshotting and plastics skills
3. Build my jig collection and learn how to fish them proper (my big bass record is lookin' awful skiiny right now ...)
4. Build the new custom Loomis blanks I got fo' the holidays before the local lake opens up

So I'm still pretty much on the beginners/intermediate scale as far as skills go; been fishin' bass for the last 6 yrs. and only now the money I need is coming in! And if anyone wants to check the finished Loomis rods, just let me know. They're the Cb845 and DS820 models, talk about what are going to be some sick custom sticks man!

Bass + Fisherman= BAASS ADDICTT!!!

My two goals are to fish more and do better at catching them from my boat.

It seems I fished more before I got my boat and I do better walking the bank. Go figure...

Oh, and like Sacto John I would like to learn Folsom better...

Still working on a double digit lmb but also have come very close.

Learn the jig.

Well, as I have been saying, I really hope to get back to some hard-core trophy Largemouth hunting this year.

Would like to get double digits from 1 or 2 new lakes.

I'd really like to get at least one teener from my home lake Berryessa, but preferably a 15 plus. I know they are in there, and I'm tired of messing around !

As for the year, I'd like to get at least 10 double digits, with a few being teens, and maybe one 15 plus.

Oh.... and I can't forget the 6 plus Smallie ! And while I'm there, maybe a 10 plus Northern

Hoping to stick some Halibut this Summer, and back to the Sturgies next Fall.

And one of these years I'm going to have to get serious with some trophy Stripers. Maybe this year ?

Anyway, great fishing to all of you guys. Hope you meet all of your goals

Peace,
Fish

I am late too... LOL!
I was wanting a 5 fish limit over 40 lbs this year but I got that two times before the end of the year.
So now I would like to get a 14+ or a 50 lb 5 fish limit.
I also would like to win a top 3 with my son in a tourney this year.
I also would like my Wife to be get her personal best on a swimbait this year.

Don.
