Personal Goals for 2001 Season

What would you like to do this year that you didn't last (or ever)?

For me: Catch a tunoid!

Remembered a couple of others:

- Host a Family Clave (see Quint Trout section)
- Go for blue shark (charter)
- Go at least once in the fall to North Shore.

I'm pretty sure I can do all these!

Hopefully:

- Go to an overnight Clave

RE:Personal Goals for 2001 Season

A good thread!

Last year my goals were a keeper striper on the fly as well as a tunoid. I achieved them both (the striper one many times over - what a difference a season and a group of mentors makes) and what a great feeling that is/was. I think this year I will get a bit more lofty.

A 40" plus striper
A bonito
Shark on a fly (contingent on a boat purchase)

My goals...

To TOP the Rip Trip with another undiscovered first! That's pretty tough considering there are few postage stamp places on the northeast coast left undisturbed. I'll have to make that a world-wide goal.

Cast to and catch a sighted striper on Monomoy.
Cast to and catch a sighted striper at that magical time as observed the last two years on a Bay side flat (end of June, about a 6:00am low- zero hour about 8:30 to 9:30am).

My goal is to fish barbless 100% of the time and to always carry pliars - no exceptions this year. Last year, I bought a fly at surfland and did not crunch the barb - I left my pliars at home. I had some difficulty unhooking a large bass with my frozen hands. Never again!

RE:Personal Goals for 2001 Season

Hey Juro,
There are places off the north shore that are at least underutilized as potential monster territory, on the fly at least. Baker Island and it's environs comes to mind. I realize it's tough to get the Cape-centric to look elswhere. But remember last oct? Striper fishing totally gone from the Cape when pow! Magnolia explodes!

RE:Personal Goals for 2001 Season

Fishing goals:
-- Three words: Bo Nee Toe
-- Explore the stretch of coastline from Marion to Swansea
-- See a striper on the flats of Monomoy
-- Catch a striper on the flats of Momomoy
-- Fish more top water
-- Bonito on top water
-- Ingratiate myself to Steve Moore (and then steal his mojo)
-- Out fish Jen (that's going to be the tough one...)

Board goals:
-- Less talk, more fishing (and/or fishing content)
-- migrate the clave sign up tools to a privately funded application server and program out the need for an information meister
-- squash pissing matches before they start
-- get Juro to add a clave page to the top level menu items (not just the promise to do so

Terry -

Yes, I think the north shore may be the ticket to discovery this year... we talked about certain estuaries between Nahant and New Hampshire last year, and now with more boats in the picture... good clams too.

RE:Personal Goals for 2001 Season

I'm very pleased that last year I achieved more than 50% of my goals. I expanded my fishing territory by about 3X. I started tying flies. I got more confidence in Boat Handling & boat fishing. I put other people onto fish from my boat. I Broke the 40" striper barrier & caught my first keeper on a fly I tied in one fell swoop. I Caught my first exotic (but technically not a tunoid). I expanded the circle of people that I fish with. I started to learn the N. Shore. I Bait fished zero times & fly fished about 70%.

For 2001:
Learn more about the N. Shore & establish a network fishing that area.
Tunoid on the Fly!
Learn something about FWFF (maybe catch a Pike on the fly)
Further Expand my fishing territory & circle of people that I fish with.
Fish Smarter Not Harder!!
Improve my casting ability.
Improve my Tying ability.
Get Juro out on my boat!
FISH NC IN THE FALL!!!!!!

As far as new territories go, I think we (or at least I) under-fished CC-Bay this past season. I think The Bay is Due & I want to fish that side more next season.

RE:Personal Goals for 2001 Season

Well,

It looks like big brother beat me to the punch as usual.

I may be abandoning the East Coast and taking a 2 year hiatus in Michigan after the 2001 season (anyone at the tying clave will meet the woman that deservingly motivated that decision). So, 2001 is going to be a year of continual fishing for me. I need to make the season my best yet. Here are my goals and I vow to meet every last one of them.

-A Nantucket sleigh ride in my kayak
-An afternoon in the kayak amongst the snapper blues that frequent the
Falmouth Heights area (seems like good fun).
-A 36" striper on the fly
-I would like to see my brother catch his first keeper on the fly
-I would like my girlfriend to witness and partake in a blitz
-Sighting and catching a Monomoy striper without the help of a guide
-Explore the North River as well as the estuaries near Portsmouth, NH
-Explore Rhode Island (motivated by Alan Caolo's talk at the Marlboro show)
-Spend some time fishing the rips near Popham Beach (3rd week in June). This
is a great spot and there is a decent campground on a nearby island.
-Either a bonito or an albie on the fly
-Catch a striper on a crab fly
-Partake in some night fishing in the surf of the Cape
-And I really do hope to finally join some of you on a number of claves

I really do value this board and respect all of the anglers that post here. I met some more of you at the show last weekend and I am continually impressed with the character of all of the board members that I have met.

See you this weekend.

-Mike Doogue
