Of course you fish to catch fish. That's a given. We all have jobs(most), so were not doing this to feed our family for the sake of survival. We have grocery stores for that. What I'm talking about is what gets your heart pounding, or what makes you feel so relaxed your floating on air. What are the intangibles the stuff you wish you could bottle up and take a sip of whenever you were down. Here's mine. 1) Sitting in the dead of night and watching one of my Tight-lined poles double over in the latern lite. A catfisherman's dream 2) Riding out of east harbor in a boat with a warm cup of coffee. As the sun comes up over the horizon burning off the morning fog. 3)Casting for walleyes off the breakwall, and shaking the hand of an angler and congratulating him. He just caught an 11.5 pound walleye. He felt like a king for a day! 4)Watching my daughter cast,set the hook,and land a nice bass. For the first time without dads help. What a sense of accomplishment she felt! 5)Besides family. Fishing was the only sense of enjoyment I could find when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 at age 31. No matter how sick I felt I still loved to fish. When I was down the most. Something as simple as fishing could lift me up. Never Under-estimate the power of something you love to do! That's mine.What's yours?
