Dates and pictures in lifelists
Is it preferable to have the date match the picture I use for a species in my lifelist or should the date be when the fish was first caught? Some of my earlier species were caught when I didn't have pictures of them or they were bad pictures so I often replace some fish pictures when I am able to get a better one. Just want some thoughts on this. :)

Good question

I generally use the date I caught the fish in the picture. Maybe we should add a second field "Year First Caught" so we can keep track of when we first caught the species but still retain the date of the catch in the photo? It would be weird for me to have "Catch Date" for pink salmon be 1997 but the photo is me as a crusty old bald dude in Alaska.

Okay

Okay, thanks for the input. I think I am going to put the picture date in the date field and then the original capture date in the Notes section.
