Epic Year Ends with 1,313 Carp!

This year, 2015, will go down in my logbook as an epic year, one that I don't think I will ever surpass as far as numbers of fish. The total number of carp that I landed this year ended up being 1.313 fish.  It blew away my previous best year, 2014, in which I landed 750 carp. Along the way, I surpassed many of my previous personal records.  Here is a brief summary of the highlights:

My biggest mirror of the year was this 29 lb. 2 oz. hog.
Most carp in a year- 1,313 carp
Most mirrors in a year- 847 mirrors
Best month ever- December, 2015- 292 carp
Best day ever- December 8, 2015- 30 carp

In addition, here are a couple of other facts (not records):
Biggest common of the year- 30 lbs., 4 oz. on Aug. 11, 2015
Biggest mirror of the year- 29 lbs., 2 oz. on May 11, 2015

With 2015 in the books, I plan on starting my 2016 season tomorrow on New Year's Day. Who knows what's in store for this year? A long time goal of mine has been to land a 40 lb. carp in RI or a 45 lb. carp in MA. Now, that's shooting for the moon. Hey, you've got to think BIG in this game!
