Roy Bilby, SUNY Cobleskill’s Supervising Carpenter and Locksmith, is featured on Bass Master’s online blog for his 25,000th bass catch – and the thorough fishing logs he’s kept as records.
Roy is a member of the Mohawk Valley Bass Anglers Club, a New York Nation group, and fishes about 100 times a year around his home in Richmondville.
“In 1985 I started keeping a detailed journal of all my fishing trips. In 1986, I started keeping a running tally of all bass caught & released. It started as a quest to improve and I have done it religiously since that time, every trip. Some 3,000 entries. On August 6th of this year, I recorded my 25,000th bass!”
