now that we've blown our new year's resolutions, it's time to get real and set realistic goals for the up and coming salmon season.

this season, i will catch a salmon on a baitless hootchie rig.

this season, i will not lose a downrigger wire in the prop circling a baitball.

this season, i will use fewer rsk's and fbr's and rig my own cripples.

this season, i will be honest to my wife about what time i'll get back to bay.

This season; I will not hollar at hammer when he knocks a 30 pounder off with the net :P
This season; I will not follow Gonefishin around when he's catching fish :P
This season; I will fish twice as much as last season :D
This season; I will not be afraid to try new things, not just use what was working the week before.

This season I will try to use various techniques instead of trolling anchovies: lures, hoochies, FBR's.

This season I will try to get more of my friends into fishing.

This season I will reduce the amount of tackle I bring on the boat to the bare minimum ;).

This season I will make it out more than last year.

I will not hollar at mickey when he knocks my 45 lb salmon off the hook with the net. I will not hollar when I see mickey clean the fish at the fish cleaning station I will Take pictures and learn how to post them With help from a sniffer 8) I will drive the boat more when trolling. So mickey can rest ( I do all the work )

With some help? Just go out on a party boat mid week. They are seldom full and always a good time. Thats what I do: No boat and no friends with boats. I can let you know when I go out.

This season, I will take my boat out more than last year (twice!).

This season, I will buy an extra freezer in anticipation of catching more salmon ;)

This season, I will NOT touch the drag when a big fish runs >:(

This season, I will use my own leaders and my own hooks on RSKs and FBRs.

This season, I will bring the net up vertically, not horizontally.

This season, I will keep the boat in gear when a fish is on (trolling).

This season ... I will be ready.

I won't put a boat in neutral when a fish is at the boat.
I won't allow a hooked salmon to pass up the boat.
I'll learn to use my autopilot in 3 leaf clover mode.

I lost every single salmon I hooked last year. Very humbling. I'm hoping this year will be a different story!

this season i'm going to figure out how to post my results to the sniffer before i get to harbor. i've had the technology for a couple years now with my phone, just haven't figured it out yet.
