This a guide of useful information that should be in your report.

Always start your report with the port you are fishing out of for the title.

  • Add the times(you can use AM or PM) you were out.
  • Number of fish caught and lost. example.....6 for 9
  • How many FOW(foot of water)
  • SOG(speed over ground) or speed at the ball.
  • Water temp at ball.
  • What depth your baits were down or set up used. example....rigger at 45', wire diver on 3 with 185' of line out, full core, or 300' of copper, etc, etc, etc....
  • Baits your caught the fish on.
  • Direction of troll
  • Wave conditions

Everyone loves to look at pictures. Try to include pictures in your post.

You do not have to fill in all the details, but as much information as possible is very much appreciated!

A fishing report without any details is just a bragging post.

Here is a similar format we use on another fishing web site for port reports:

"Date & port fished:

Most productive troll direction:
Depth of hits:
Rigger lead lengths:
Number of fishermen aboard:
Best lures & colors:
Surface temp:

Down temp for hits (if known):
Troll speed:
Number and kind of fish caught:

Reel commentary: "



We copy and paste this and fill in the details.
