It's always good to keep a fish log each time you go out fishing, this will help you in future trips for years to come. Keeping a log only takes a few minutes when you come in from fishing to fill out in a log book and the benefits are endless.

A few things to include in your log are:

Time and date of trip:
Water temperature:
Water clarity:
Wind direction:
Tidle movement:
Weather conditions: (sunny or cloudy)
Types of lures used that day
