      Temperature, time, date, overcast or not, water temp., moon phase, wind direction, what you used, how you fished it, where you went, and most importantly what you caught.

        I would put in the best catch of the day.

            Depends on what you are using it for... if you are trying to learn fish patterns, then I'd go with what streak said, but if it's for memories just put pictures and a short story.

              I have kept a journal for several years and I note a little bit of everything. I note the date, time, weather, bait used, etc.

              But as mentioned above I also tell the story of the trip, sometimes I get off subject and just start writing down my thoughts.

              I also add drawings and later turn those into paintings.

                  I have found that chopping roots with an axe is a waste of time and energy because of the bounce.
