    What are everyones catfishing goals for 2006? Mine are below.

    1. Complete boat project
    2. Fish more with my wife (she as a bad back that kept her from doing much in 05)
    3. Catch the Lake Grapevine Blue and Channel Cat Records.
    The all tackle Blue cat record is 40.2 and the R&R record is 29.97
    The all tackle channel cat record is 8.12 and there is no R&R record.

    This is about I have set. The lake records should be easy since I have land a few in the 15lb range already. The channel cat record will be supper easy but I will not summit anything under 5lbs.

    Lets see everyone else's catfishing goals for 2006.

    My Catfishing goals for 2006 are to get out as many times as I can. I also have a deep burning desire to break the Pennsylvania Flathead record which has stood since 1985 at 43lb. 9oz. That's gonna be tough but it also means doing a lot of fishing, so.....:thumbsup:

    I am also wanting to break that PA state record because it's not that heavy, and also i heard of a 50# being caught in my local river, but the rumor is that they chopped it up and ate it! becuase they didnt know that it was a record, hard to believe but I've heard it from pretty reliable source(s).

    My goal is to find as many new (good) flathead spots as possible.
    Catch a 30+ lb blue
    A 30+ lb flatty
    and beat my 15lb channel. Those are my goals now all I have to do is to keep from going crazy waiting for the weather to warm up enough to start trying.

    My goal for 2006 is to beat the 70 lb record for a flattie here in MN. I figure the record has stood for 35 years....and its about time its broken. If I I can't break the record, I'd at least like to put a 60 on shore.

    I would like to fish much more than last year. I would also like to get to fish more with my Dad. Just the opportunity to go is all I can ask for.

    My goal almost mirrors that of TNVOLCAT, that for my goal, I just want to have the time and opportunity to get out and fish more than what the past couple years have allowed. Also trying to get my dad motivated to get out of the house and go fishing with me more often, I think it'd do him some good.

    I Just want to be at the lake as much as I can this year. I want more of the outdoor stuff and all that goes with it, including teaching my Grand Daughter how to take care of her self when on lake , in woods. Catching cats is a bonus.
    I've had a lack time for past 2 years thats killing me. I'm curing that this year. I hope.
