Do any of you use any fishing software for logs/diaries to track your locations, fish, techniques used, etc..?

I was doing a Google search, but I thought I would ask here first. Right now, I'm testing out Univeral Angler ('s fish log.

I just tried to install Univeral Angler on Windows 2000 Professional and it went crazy during the installation and wouldn't install. I've seen some other one's out there that have worked pretty good if I can find them again i will let you know

There used to be one called Virtual Creel that was available as a free download. Not sure if it's still out there. I tried it a few times and it was a little cumbersome but otherwise pretty good.

Not sure if this software covers what you want exactly but it's free!

I think is specializes in keeping track of patterns, but it has a lot of features.

My fishing log from the last 45 years of fishing is in my brain cells and thats where it will stay. Besides I am usually too tired after hard day of steelheading to think about all of the variables and facts of the day.

Used to carry a small notepad in my vest to write down events of the day. Air and H2O temp, mont/day/date,fish lost and landed and on what.

I was looking at that old pad last month, sure was neat to relive some of those old trips. Tons of info in there, I imagine compiling it and massaging the data would be a neat thing to do.
