    Catch a Coastal Cuttie, a Steelhead, Eagle Lake Rainbow, McCloud River Redband, and a Goose Lake Redband Trout. If I catch all of em', it's gonna be a fun year! Maybe even a trip to Yellowstone Nat. Park for some Yellowstone Cutties.

    Things I am excited about for the future, while reserving the right to change my mind on a whim ;)

    - Swing up more Kings. Springers and Fall fish. I stuck my first one swinging last year and I may be "hooked."
    - Chase Steelhead in places I have never fished. One of these three...BC, NorCal some rivers in Oregon.
    - Finally participate in the Columbia shad fiesta. Murder a pile. Smoke them. Can them. Eat them.
    - Fish with the kids more. Our spring trout fishing died out too quickly this year. Camp and fish with them as well.

    Hook-set multiple adult migratory tarpon and boat at least one >100 pounds this May. Improve at casting a 12 wt.

    Catch my first snook from the beach in May.

    Catch a good sized blackmouth from the beach this summer.

    Catch a 10+ pound migratory silver from the beach, far from estuaries and net pens.

    Catch a big fall chinook in a western OP river in October.

    Catch many bonefish and Grand Trevally at Christmas Island.

    -Ditto on the tiger muskie. My family has a trip planned to Mayfield in June. They're frustrating when you can see them, but they're a huge goal of mine.
    -Coastal Cutt over 20". Salt, river or lake.
    -A wild steelhead from 5 different rivers.
