A fishing logbook or logbook App on your phone will help improve your odds as a fisherman. Logging your trips won’t guarantee you success on every outing, but it will definitely increase your chances of catching fish during every season of the year.
A fishing logbook helps you begin to notice patterns in bass movements and behavior related to water conditions, food supply, weather, type of lake, time of year and time of day. Information that should be in your logbook includes site, date, time, weather, temperature, water clarity, water conditions, barometric pressure, lake level, how you fished, depth, lure (type, size, color used and presentation), number and size of fish caught, plus anything else you think that could be helpful down the road.
