hey all,

i read once if you keep a log of your trips you will start to build a pattern on where and times to go fishing. so the question is does anyone use a log or have any ideas of where i can find any other than making up one of my own. [smiley=angling.gif]

You might want to try a search on the site, I know there was talk several months back on logs.

Allways have, I just use a callander and date book.
Put what ever kind of info in it you want.

I started keeping a log when I first got my boat but changed gears sence then, now I take pics of all my trips and catches and the pics are dated and put in folders ( on the computer ) this way I just look at the folder for whatever month it is and know what I caught when and where. I know some folks keep all kinds of info about what was used and such, but it seems to me if I'm fishing for a certain type of fish I end up pulling the same lures I always do for that species anyhow, so I figured why bother :P

I agree about seeing patterns with a fishing log. It also helps you remember the little things you learn each time out. Overall it can be very valuable when it's been a year since you last fished those circumstances.

Try this web site. You can get a free download for "Angler's eLog"

I keep both a detailed fishing log and a hunting log and information is invaluable. In addition when the weather is to inclement to fish/hunt you can kick back and read through your log and relive memorable fishing trips.

I'm like Waterdog, I keep records of both hunting and fishing outings.

Glad to help,
You kinda have to work with the log to set it up the way you want it but it's fun to play with.
