So when we troll salmon or muskies, we score it 3 for 5 as we caught versus 5 biters. Seeing this kind of report lately for just muskies, and I know not everyone is talking about trolling. Is this fish caught versus bites? Fish caught versus those seen?

Fish hooked vs fish boated. Salmon guys also call fish hooked and not boated drive byes.

I use it for hits, ie, say 10 hits in a day and we caught 6..., 6 for 10.

3 boated 1 rip/hit (that's likely not a pike), and 1 lost... 3 for 5 in my boat trolling or casting.

Has to bite to count in my boat. 3 for 5 means 5 fish bit a lure.

On a good season I'll go 25 for 3 for 1.

25 seen. 3 hooked/lost. 1 caught!

And that's on a good year....................

So far it's working that way!

So wednesday we had 15 fish eat, hooked 11 and caught 6. So that is 6 for 15? No wrong answer by the way.

What a pathetic pastime we pursue when forced to keep track of fish that got away, much less fish that followed and for how long they followed. And, yes, if a fish even "moved." You "moved" three fish today? Imagine as a young man pursuing the ladies your buddies says, "I saw a couple of girls tonight." I'd say, "whaaaat?" I'd put the loser on the next short bus to the "special" class. I'm giving this up or buying an exhaust pipe attachment that links to my mouth. The simple truth is I've "almost" had sex a whole of times, but can't think of a single person who would give a rip to hear about it.

Pretty lame reply if you ask me. The best in any sport look at their results and try to improve upon them. Data can be used to spot trends, where and when you should be fishing etc... It can also show you what lures produce more at certain times under certain conditions. The goal is to get hits and land fish isn't it?, unless you like sunset pics. You can scoff at it all you want Junkman but it might be something you want to start doing to improve your results, which are never too impressive. Mighta been better to just sit this thread out Marty.

Depends on the size of and location of the muskies you're fishing for when you make the determination, you're right that it can be hard to tell sometimes though.

Humor (it seems?) is in the eye of the beholder, or at least the author. Alas, my post was a not really well received attempt at humor. And as to "results never too impressive," I have never plead anything but guilty to that, and especially true with my tourney attempts. My last attempt at Cass several weeks ago was with 200 guys and gals who fished 15 hours each for a total of 25 fish. That's (give or take) about 120 angling hours per fish caught, or three full work-weeks per angler to get a fish. And, yes, I was in the not catching group. I did post honest congratulations to the winners, which I usually do, and the above post was nothing more then poking fun at myself for what seems (all too often) like a dumb way to spend a day beating myself up. Lastly, just like last year's Chicago Cubs, there will be a day when I catch a fish. Until then, I actually do work pretty hard to "improve my results." It'll get there.

Keep the humor coming Junkman, I love it. If we took ourselves excessively serious , we probably wouldn't even chase these critters

Sometimes folks take this whole muskie fishing thing way too seriously. I'm really glad Junkman doesn't.

And Nelson, I promise you, you can't hold even a birthday cake candle to Junkman's lunch sandwiches. Some people take food too seriously too, but Junkman has the sandwich category nailed.

Most everyone likes to eat. Marty will feed you right if you spend a day in his ride.

No future as an angler maybe, but my sandwiches hit the mark. Maybe a restaurant is the future? Really, it's all in the mustard.
