2022 Species List:

Species Count: 23 (updated 05/10/22)

A new year is upon us, and it’s time to restart the annual species list.

Last year’s total of 45 may prove difficult to top. However, with trips to Costa Rica, Alaska and New York potentially on the docket, it certainly isn’t out of reach.

Be sure to check back regularly to see how the season has progressed. A direct link to this list can be found under the “Gallery” subheading of the menu at the top of the home page.

    1. Thanks Chuck! Still a long way to go to match last year. Hoping the Sheepshead and Black Drum that eluded me last year help me get there.
