So, I checked over my fishing log for the year, and here is a summary of the year.
Number of trips: 37
Average # of fish per trip: 8
Most fish in a day: 24 (3 times)
Skunkings: 0 (first time ever)
Largest fish: 22" Clinch River Brown
Most Memorable Fish: 19" Clinch Brown on a #18 Sulfur Thorax
Different fishing locations: Clinch, South Holston, Watauga, Hiwassee, Holston, GSMNP
2008 was the best year of fishing I have ever had. Granted, in 2007 I went to Colorado and had some outstanding fishing, all of 2008 was local fishing. I caught more quality fish this past year than ever before. I like to credit the slot limit on the Clinch for that, and I am very excited about this Spring's sulfur hatch on the Clinch. The results of the slot limit should be even more visible.
Until next time....
Tight Lines and God Bless
