Year in Review: 2009

Posted by MNAngler On December - 31 - 2009

Thanx to my diligence in using FishSwami this year, I have a summary of my fishing excursions for 2009. Here are the results:

Days Fished: 28
Fish Caught: 29
Locations Fished: 7
Patterns Fished: 6
Most fish caught in one day: 3 on June 14th

Northern Pike: 10
Smallmouth Bass: 9
Largemouth Bass: 7
Walleye: 1
Muskie: 0

These probably aren’t very impressive numbers to you hard-core anglers, but I’m happy with them. Of course I would have liked to catch more (and bigger) fish, but the best part for me is that I was able to get out 28 days out of the year. Most years, that’s barely in the double digits. I hope to be on the water (or ice) a lot more often in the coming year.

One non-fishing stat for 2009 is that I popped 7 bunnies this year. We have a lot of rabbits in our neighborhood and they wreak havoc on our gardens. I bought a pellet gun in the fall of 2008 and started dispatching the pests last Spring. We even made some hossenfeffer for our neighborhood to try at our wild game feast. I hope to eliminate more of these rodents in 2010.

For this, my last post of the year, I would like to thank all my readers for making my little blog much more successful than I ever expected when I started this adventure. And thank you to all those fellow bloggers that blogrolled me. If I didn’t return the favor, please let me know and I’ll correct that travesty immediately.

In 2010, I hope to bring you many more pictures of big lunkers, and hopefully more often.

May your lines be tight, your live wells be full, and your camera shutter be clicking often throughout 2010.
