    I only fished the surf one time in 2016. I wanted to see how I could handle it after my shoulder surgery. I couldn’t cast! I caught one whiting, five bluefish and two spots. I officially retired from the surf on that day!

    I fished Sleepy Hollow 34 times in 2016. I caught 44 flatties, 48 redfish, 3 trout, 1 snook, 1 drum and 1 catfish there.

    I fished the Swoope Ramp area 14 times in 2016. I caught 21 flatties there.

    I fished the flat bridge 301 times in 2016. That includes the days I fished there twice.

    On a good note - I caught two overslot redfish. The largest (31") was my personal best. I caught one slot snook in October. I caught 33 varieties of fish in 2016 for a grand total of 1881 fish.

    465 * Flounder
    469 * Trout
    78 * Redfish
    63 * Snook
    324 * Ladyfish
    266 * Bluefish

    1 * Ribbonfish
    8 * Lizardfish
    1 * Drum

    Im crying lmfao.This pic is great.

    Thanks for the fish-log idea. Lets see how long I can keep one. I just met someone recently who is visiting the area and told me that his wifes grandfather kept a journal of the area with fish recordings, locations and so on. He checked a few spots out and fished them but also came to find out some spots were no longer available to fish. Seems like something pretty awesome for future generations.

    Muggin - When I was running the charter and party boats I kept daily reports. I even included weather and tide conditions. Somehow those books got away from me over the years.

    I can't remember all of the fish but I take a photo of every fish! I keep a folder for each month's fish with the date. Then the report is added to the Stat book.

    I am new to this forum and love fishing.
    Usually pretty mentally stable but wondering about stalking Bob, quietly and of course from a distance just so I can see how he does it.
    Maybe I could bring along some Folgers.
    Well Done Captain !
