Default The "Best of 2016" thread

Well, 2016 is quickly winding down and with it, another year of fishing on in the books. As usual, post up your "best" or "most memorable" catches of the year. Hopefully Andy can sticky this for a bit..

My 2016 in a nutshell:

-Opened 2016 on January 2nd with a Big D Walleye from the yak
-Some GREAT ice fishing with all species coming through the ice including three 35"+ Pike during the coldest week of the year
-Early season kayak 'Eyes on empty lakes followed by herring spawn zombie nights
-HOT week in July of Hybrids, Walleye, Rainbows, Pike and Panfish
-Late start to the fall bite, but it ain't over yet!

Thumbs up Re: The "Best of 2016" thread

I'm not one for saving my photos, so I went back and looked for some. Found a few not many. Did help Rutgers PIT tagging American Shad this year on the Raritan river. Boat NEVER moved this year !! But the canoe was used quite often

What got caught in 2016:

-Started out in spring with a PB bluefish at 13lbs and 36".
-Following that one up with a PB smallmouth bass at 2+lbs 17"+ also early spring.
-Summer was filled with fluke like the one pictured, largemouth and smallmouth bass, and various other miscellaneous fish.
-Highlight of the summer was the 25.5lb 39" Flathead catfish from the Delaware River. Highlight of the year even!
-Then fall brought a handful of cool fish including some brown trout, big fallfish, Blackfish, and finally wrapping things up with some of my first walleye including the 24" one in picture.
It has been an even better year than the last!

Full stringer on opening day(nomehegan/Rahway),a real bass from monksville!, chunky wild brown(peq.)
One of ten brownies from my best wild trout day(peq)-dinner!(wanaque)-monksville double header- went out each cast was a fish. Some pigs and slime dart from my "secret spot"/hometurf - a random fall rainbow(ramapo)and some fish spooge.

Been a great year for me- nothing crazy flashy- just fun.cant wait to see everybody next Thursday

Some big ass fish caught! Glad to have been present for a few of them! No idea how to make a collage out of them but I'll slather a bunch of photos up here after this weekend. First weekend I won't be able to fish in a long long time, kind of making me feel sick to my stomach!

If anyone wants a simple collage of pics like in the OP just send me a pm. You'd have to send me the pics in an email I guess.

I'd make one myself but a dink bass, bluegill, and 1 sea robin aren't pic worthy.
