For those of you who are always looking to do something new with the fly rod, I was wondering what goals you have for yourself this year, re: warm-water fishing. For me, I typically try and pursue a new species each year. Not necessarily new as in never-caught, but something I'm wanting to actually learn more about, catch in different and challenging situations, etc. For the past few years it's been pike. I've still yet to completely figure that one out, particularly spring time fishing, and getting the larger ones to commit to the bite. Another goal I have is to catch a Montanan freshwater drum on the fly. I don't know ANYTHING about this, so I thought that might be a fun challenge. Allegedly, there's freshwater drum in a stretch of Missouri river only about five hours from me. I'd also like to pursue bass more. I tend to pass bass up over pike. But I'm gonna try and rethink that. Lastly, I need to learn how to use a spinning rod or a baitcaster. I haven't used one since I was eight. It's kinda silly that I don't at least keep one in the boat for shits and giggles (and to probably catch a ton more pike than I do. . .). What are your goals? Oh, and I got the year's skunk off last night!
