My wife and I watched the movie "Bucket List" - two guys only have a few months to live so they make a list of things to do before they kick the bucket.

Got me thinking of a bucket list for fishing.I've been very lucky and have gotten to fish in some cool places.

Before I go though - I would love a shot at the huge Black Marlin off the Great Barrier reef.To me that would be the trip of a lifetime.

It's winter - so let's see your bucket list :thumbup:.

Have no fear Riverman $100 says if i ever have the opportunity to get a record fish i know I would have first given the pole to my 8 year old son and he wouldnt be able to reel it in so I would have to take over making the record not valid :rolleyes: :D

I second the peacock bass. I have been wanting to do that for a couple of years. Second on the list would be a giant Sturgeon.

My bucket list in life is the same as my fishing bucket list. Don't lie, we are all talking about the same thing.

I'm only 30 years old and have already messed with tarpon and Bonefish in Belize, wolf fish in S. America (no peakock bass in this one river), salmon and steelhead in NY, stripers from Mass south to NC, black drum in Florida, Rainbows and browns in Chile.... Just this Fall I did Montauk, Upstate NY steelhead and salmon (twice), CBBT stripers on a fly rod at night, wresteled with a muskie on the potmoc along with a few 20" smallmouth and I'm not loaded with money by any means. I just like to fish and figured out how to do it on the cheap. Or similar to the amount of money my single friends spend at a bar in one night.

But I also have a bucket list for fishing and my ultimate goal is to go to Kamchatka in Russia for Atlatnic Salmon, Pacific Salmon and their legendary rainbows that reach 30 pounds. They say it is what Alaska used to be 100 years ago and westerners have only been permitted on the penisula since the mid 90's or so. Still thousands of rivers unexplored and only a handful of outfitters. But I got to agree with John's post above, any fish with my two year old son will be equally memorable as any of my best fish.

It would be my luck, it would be my 5 year olds turn on that fish and screw it up for me too
What the hell, it's only money
Skip, the world record is yours for the taking
Probably yours anyway, you fish 300 days a year now- right??

I know this doesn't sound like much; but a 5 lb (or over) largemouth from Smithville Lake. Seems all I can muster is 3-4 lbs at the most. 5th (Marty)
