Howdy y'all! Let me tell ya 'bout this video I made recently. It's all about usin' AI to help us catch bigger bass. You can give it a watch right here:
Usin' AI for Fishin'
Now, I started off by talkin' 'bout how it's been hotter than a billy goat in a pepper patch out here, and the fishin' has been rough. So, I thought, why not turn to AI for a little help? I ain't talkin' 'bout just any ol' AI, but one that can crunch some serious data. I went ahead and downloaded the Toyota Texas ShareLunker data and fed it into ChatGPT to see what I could learn.
Analyzin' the Data
I showed y'all how I used ChatGPT to analyze the data, askin' it questions like how many bass over 13 pounds are in the program (647, if you're wonderin'), which lake has produced the most (Lake Fork, the OG), and which lakes are the top five producers of big bass (Lake Fork, OH Ivie, Sam Rayburn, Alan Henry, and Lake Austin).
Best Times to Fish
I also looked at when the best times to fish for these big boys are, and turns out, it's mostly in the winter and around the spawn in March, April, and May. I also found out that in recent years, OH Ivie has been outperformin' Lake Fork in terms of big bass production.
One thing that really blew my mind was the longest bass recorded was 29.5 inches but only weighed 12 pounds, while the heaviest bass was 18 pounds at 25.5 inches. I also found it interestin' that Lake Conroe, which is a stone's throw from where I live, has a lot of big bass in it.
In the end, I'm pretty excited 'bout the potential of usin' AI to help me catch bigger bass and I'm lookin' forward to findin' more data to analyze. I even asked y'all to leave any questions you have or any other sources of fish data you know of in the comments.
So, there ya have it, folks! A little bit of tech, a little bit of fishin', and a whole lot of Texas charm. Y'all take care now, ya hear?
