Kayak Fishing New Year resolutions and goals

December 30th, 2010 · 2 Comments


With the New Year upon us, many people take the time to make resolutions and goals for the future. Here are a few that I came up with.

More Fishing!
Nothing is better than fishing more. More fishing equates to learning more successful fishing habits. I wholeheartedly plan on fishing all the NWKA kayak fishing events, and hopefully a couple ABA bass events.

Promote a Lifestyle of Stewardship
Fishing won’t last unless we take care of things now. I will be continuing my support for Recycled Fish, and hope I’ll be able to help them out even more in the coming year. Also, I’d like to continue promoting healthier fishing habits by using more environmentally fishing tackle like found at Green Tackle.

take people fishing
I was fortunate to be able to take my nephew fishing in 2010, and want to take out more people and introduce them to fishing. I also have a couple kayaks, making it easy to get people acquainted with kayak fishing!

learn to fly
Not in the air, but this fly rod. I’ve thrown it around a bit, but lessons are most definitely in order. Its funny that most of the people I follow on twitter, and many of the websites I read on a daily basis are based around fly fishing, yet I can’t call myself a fly fisherman by any means.

10′ sturgeon on the kayak
This is my number one goal for 2011. A ten foot, 500+ pound, Columbia River white sturgeon. I’m of the mind of making it the last sturgeon I ever hook. The sturgeon population is not fairing well by any means, and I hope to use it as an opportunity for education.

    Sounds like you’ll be busy. Also sounds like I should have gotten fly fishing lessons for Christmas. Oh, well, maybe we can do that for Jewels birthday. She might like to join you in that art…
