I put in a lot of time on the water this year. 133 outings, 1,005 fish caught. The vast majority of my catches were river smallmouth. A few things stand out in my mind as I think back on 2011: having a spectacular bite dialed in during September and October; the addition of the swim jig to my fishing arsenal; and the mild (weather) finish to the calendar year. Numbers-wise this was my best year to date. Size-wise, not too shabby either. Full summary here.
Wishing you and your family a safe, healthy and prosperous 2012!
Happy New Year!
