White board on boat helps to keep track

Recommended Posts

I have trouble keeping track of the six rods we put out. This white board will help, hopefully. My wife laughed her a$$ and said I'm taking this way too far!IMG_20180625_201658607.jpg

.......and so the disease of the salmon mind begins.  Soon you will be laying in bed at night staring at the ceiling while trying to figure out a full 11 rod FUBAR spread.

I know. 5 or 6 is all I can handle though. I get enough tangles already.

I use a dry marker and just write down the line out and settings next to the pole holders on the top of the gunwales and transome. Just erase with a cloth.

I wrap white duct tape on my rod handles, then on the back In permanent marker write what line is on it and when I spooled it, then cover that with clear packing tape. Once I set the rod I use a grease pencil to write how many feet out that rod is on it, then you know as well as anyone else on the boat who may be resetting that rod. The grease pencil works great on the packing tape. IMG_20160904_083133298.jpg

I joked  in my above post but for years I kept detailed data regarding what where when and how out there and over time it came in very handy. There is nothing like hard data to make decisions from. The key thing is selecting the right variables to track and then you can see patterns over time and experience some "ah ha" moments when you discover stuff:happy2:

I have a similar drawing to yours with a boat and just about every rod option drawn in so I can just write in what l plan to run the night before. This really helped me sleep better at night before fishing. 

 

During and after fishing I write down other pertinent information on the back side, and sometimes I will write down fishing report info from previous days or previous days' weather info.

 

I would love to know what other guys who have been following trends have found to be the most valuable bits of info to keep track of.

you might want to include water clarity and sky conditions.  It may help to identify correct lure selections for conditions in the future.

 I know, I don't pay enough attention to that. I usually just put a combination things out and hope for the best. Usually, combination of spoons and flasher flies.

I don’t track that stuff either, but if I get hit I always check to see what my line counter says before I start fighting the fish so I can get back to the same location. I also do this before I bring up my riggers.
