|There are permit in Sarasota Bay, and my goal for 2016 is to catch one.|
With the new year upon us, it's time to set some realistic -- and attainable -- goals.
One goal that immediately comes to mind is to do more fly fishing. I love to fly fish, but don't do it nearly enough. I've made a concerted effort to do more and have done so since last summer. I've only spin-fished on a few occasions.
With that in mind, here are my fishing goals by species:
Spotted seatrout: 500
Jack crevalle, 30
Spanish mackerel, 10
False albacore (little tunny), 1
Largemouth bass, 100
Mayan cichlid, 50
Channel catfish, 20
Speckled perch, 20
Sunshine bass, 1
Suwannee bass, 1
As I catch different species, I will keep count and remove them from my list as I reach each goal. I think my goals are realistic and not too difficult.
I will write about my progress or lack thereof from time to time through this blog.
All of my fishing will be done via kayak or wading.
Wish me luck!
