I'm turning 40 tomorrow.  I figure, I'm not going to get better at anything athletically, but I still want to have some goals in life.  I like fishing, but I don't get out there as much as I'd like.  To motivate myself and to keep it interesting, I decided to set a goal of catching 50 different species of fish here in my home state of Wisconsin.  And to add to the difficulty, I have to catch each as I'm filming it.  I'm going to post each video to this thread, and I'm also going to need help as I go.  Any tips on how to catch different species of fish would be greatly appreciated.  Here's the first fish I caught on video, the Bigmouth Buffalo by the Hustisford Dam.

I really hope you get number 50...but on the other hand, the thought of your quest being over makes me a bit sad. It's been fun sharing this adventure and I don't want it to end!!!

I thought I posted this, but apparently not... I caught species 49!  It was a shovelnose sturgeon, and I caught it while fishing with a writer from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel!  Here's the video link. One to go!  I've got to buy a few things and then I'm going after the muskellunge!

Great goal and theme to continue working at!  Reminds of 39 hours but more involved.  Have you caught a largemouth yet?  I know where you might find some if you have not yet!

Something really cool happened this week.  I got a hold of Paul A. Smith of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and I interviewed him as we tried to catch shovelnose sturgeon.  I haven't finished editing that video yet, but here's the video where I interviewed Paul.  Very nice guy who definitely has a passion for making sure the people in Wisconsin have access to outdoor opportunities.
