Since Brun Hilda has the armor bustier and horned helmet on, I'm relegating my striper fishing to "Targets of Opportunity" now, e.g. if I see fishing breaking in the backyard or during a boat ride, I'll try. My last few forays targeting them have been skunkings with a swirl or two at my popper. Will off submitting my Maine Volunteer Angler Logbook until after Columbus day "just in case..."

Season ended strong with a bang-up September. I was only down 9% from 2020 totals (570 vs 515), but up 7X from 2020 on 28+" fish (3 vs 21). Mean fish size up to 21.4" in 2021 from 19.9" in 2020 and Median fish size up to 21" in 2021 from 20" in 2020. I made 102 bass safaris this year, averaging 5 fish per trip. All in all, a very successful and gratifying season as I explored and mastered some new spots which let me focus on quality vs quantity.

Now it's time to dig clams and collect oysters tide willing. That helps to dull the sting of the long wait until late May 2022...

What, no standard deviation or plotted data?
you'll never get this published!

I must agree with Matts, Roccus. I would have anticipated a far more "in depth analysis" from such a brilliant scientific mind as yours. :ROFLMAO:

Seriously, congrats on what seemed to be a really solid Striper season for you, both quantity and quality wise. Well done!


And I thought no one would care

Standard Deviation = 3.5022 inches

And the frequency distribution graph will have to wait until later, got to go fishing now...

OK, here's the frequency distribution. Been a long time since I did this, 3 versions of Excel ago to be exact. Took me a while to figure out the newfangled system...

Now that's the Roccus we all know and love!!!

PS: I also agree that the darned software revs keep changing must faster than most of us retired folks can keep up with.
