As the title states, what are your outdoor goals for this coming summer? Personally, I want to catch both a bass and a walleye big enough to mount and I want to buy a canoe. What say you?

The one main "outdoor type" goal that I have for this year is to catch enough crappie and bluegill, as well as find enough mushrooms when they start poppin, to have a mushroom/fish fry this spring.

Outside of that I plan to drink a lot of beer, have a lot of campfires, and throw cornhole all summer.

I like to keep my goals realistic :smiley_clap:
 
i busted my 40 pound goal last year with a 42 pound shovel head , this year im after the 50 pound goal , and win as many bass and catfish tournaments as i can , my team partner isnt fishing the bfl this year so that gives us more chances to hit smaller tournaments

To "master" a baitcaster. For some reason, those things just elude me......

Kat, nice job on the 42lb shovel, that's a heck of a fish!

When I was trying to sharpen my skills with a baitcaster, I would take a heavy weighted skirt jig and cut the hook off of it, so I just had the weight and the skirt. I would put a five gallon bucket out in the yard and walk around it at different distances and try to cast into the bucket.

Actually pretty entertaining to do you with your buddies when their is nothing else going on. Couldn't believe how much it improved my skills.

Used to do the same thing with a hula hoop and a bell sinker, great practice!

I couldn't possibly list everything I want to do, but I'm absolutely doing more of this.
