1975 Fishing Report Archive -- Fishin' with Rick Holt

At some point in my childhood my dad and I began fishing together. I don't recall exactly how long ago it was when we got serious about our fishing, but by 1966 when I was 16 years old I began keeping a fishing log. What follows here is my ninth year of record keeping -- the 1975 fishing log (there was no fishing log for 1974, and I really don't think I did any fishing at all that year with college and other interests occupying my time.) My records for this year consist of only 3 reports in May. Since I was pretty meticulous about keeping records I don't think I did much fishing this year either, though I don't really recall now as I look back about 30 years later. I was in college during this year and doing a lot of backpacking and bicycling with the Terrapin Trail Club.
Mark Trent (Trail Club) and I under #2 bridge to right of piling on left. 10 am - 2 pm.
Total catch: 135 crappies
Dad and Rick. #2 bridge. Right of piling on left. 4 hours fishing.
Total catch: 106 crappies
Dad and Rick. #2 bridge. Right of piling on left. Less than 3 hours fishing time. 9:15 am - Noon.
Total catch: 175 craps!!!
And so ends my old fishing log. It warms my heart to realize that this last fishing day with Dad was such a memorable day. We never fished together again as far as I recall as our lives went in different directions. I soon graduated from college, got a job, got married and life goes on.....
I resumed my fishing logs when I started my webpage in 1998 and have continued them since then as an on-line fishing journal.
