I haven't been able to get out fishing properly for the past month, so I'm posting here to ask this question: What species have you caught in your fishing "career"? Obviously the list could be ridiculously long, so I suggest attaching it via Google docs or something.
Here's mine: https://docs.google.com/document/d/19Vy37gsc7ZCByBtVQg9603vAou5khKJZ4D6DWUZGKx8/edit?usp=sharing

I need to update my list but as of a few years ago I had caught 121 different saltwater species from California piers, an additional 24 different species from boats in California, 9 different Hawaii species, 12 different Gulf Coast species, 3 additional Washington state species, and roughly a dozen freshwater species so 181 different species. Too many to list.

If I had the money I would love to travel and catch species throughout the world but that's never going to happen.

I would love to see where other people's lifelists are at. I've been on a personal journey to expand my own lifelist over the past 7 years, and have probably just crossed over the 1000th species this month during a trip to Hawaii (still need to double check on some identifications), making me one of the few handful of people in the world who can claim this accomplishment.

You can see every species I've caught on my blog. Although the blog itself is partially disabled due to photobucket's TOS changes, the species lifelist is fully operational.

https://obsessiveangling.wordpress.com/species-lifelist/complete-species-list/

You can also find some other prominent lifelisters at their blogs:

Steve (1600+ species) https://1000fish.wordpress.com/
Ken (730+ species) http://muskiebaitadventures.blogspot.com/p/species-list.html
Ben (450+ species) https://www.flickr.com/photos/64436841@N04/sets/72157668216842322
Josh (380+ species) http://lifelistfishing.com/lifelist/
Ryan (220+ species) http://fishihavecaught.com/

Websites that host additional lifelisting anglers include http://www.roughfish.com/ and https://www.specieshunters.com/default.asp

There are also many lifelisters that you can find on instagram:
Alex (380+ species) https://www.instagram.com/tree941/
Pat (350+ species) https://www.instagram.com/pmk00001/

Although it is fairly new, you can also find my lifelist instagram at https://www.instagram.com/obsessiveangling/

Pretty impressive list. Really shocked to see 7-gill shark not on there.

Thanks, grammar. Although I have caught Sevengill Sharks before, I chose not to include them in my "life-list," simply because my personal lifelist rules did not allow them to count as a catch.

To make a long story short, I only count species that I have caught via rod and reel in a fair hooked fashion and that have a clear and representative photograph. Before 7 years ago, I had a somewhat poor camera that resulted in blurry photos of fish that I deemed unworthy of the lifelist gallery; thus, disqualification from inclusion. In fact, in lieu of reaching 1000 species, I went through my lifelist and removed quite a few species due to poor quality photographs or other technical aspects. Thus my current 1000 species were all caught within the last 7 years.

So in reality, the list of species actually hooked and landed by me throughout my entire life is a fair bit longer, but these extra species are not counted on my "official" count.

Sounds to me like you need to bring your current DSLR and let's go target them specifically. They are such an awesome shark and very photogenic. Very Happy

I can respect your rationale for not including your past catch.

I was questioning whether all the photos were personal ones or stock photos. Some of them are spectacular representations of the catches.

I really wish my love for spreadsheets struck earlier in life. I could see myself keeping an electronic log of all my catches. Seems pointless to start now.

That sounds like a good plan haha. I would love to get a new Sevengill picture and add it back to my list.

I take alot of effort to produce good quality photos, so thank you for noticing.

I think it's never too late to begin keeping track of catches! I didn't start officially lifelisting until I was well into my 20's and others, like Steve Wozniak, didn't get their first 100 species until he was in his mid 30's.
