We religiously keep and document a logbook have been since 2006.
Some basic data points we capture are: Water temp & clarity, location, depth, lure, casting/trolling, line out (trolling), time of day.
Just started doing the solunar phases last year and also going to do better at keeping track of total fishing time on the water including barometric pressure readings and overall weather conditions (windy, calm, cloud coverage) for S&Gs.
I can tell you for a hands down documented fact taking the time to annotate and maintain a logbook has really paid off for us as we have learned so much from the database created with this information.
So just curious how others approach this and if others maintain logbooks and if so have you found it beneficial.

Once you know everything about anything its what you learn afterwards that counts.
Skunked, we never get skunked its the fish getting skunked as they just kept missing our lures.
