A new year is upon us, and it’s time to restart the annual species list.
Following an epic 2022 campaign that saw a whopping 57 species come to hand, I certainly have my work cut out for me in 2023. My sights now set on 60 species in the coming year, you can be sure this gallery will be updated early and often. With trips to New England, Alaska and south Florida in the works, I’m hopeful that 2023 will be my best year on record.
With that in mind, be sure to check back regularly. Or better still, comment below to let me know how your 2023 season is going. It’s always exciting to hear how these patterns are producing for everyone!
Happy New Year!

Cool! We’re tied. I got a largemouth, warmouth, and a bluegill!
Good start, Jim! I was hoping to find some largemouth as well yesterday. They were strangely absent though.
