Reasons For Fishing Trips are many to count. However, the part that tags along with it is the fun. I experienced times when I was casting a top-water bass lure out, and foul hooked a carp. I targeted a skipjack herring and catch a BIG Freshwater Drum. I’ve had days when I didn’t expect much action and just “fishing to be fishing” only to discover that on that day, I caught more fish in two hours than I’d found in the three weeks prior. Days when I thought I’d go wearing them out, I didn’t even get a nibble.

Reasons For Fishing Trips: Some Things To Know

It’s always a mystery. I see a ripple over there. I cast on it. Is it a big Crappie, a carp, a sunfish, or just a wind ripple? Cast to the middle of the channel and got hooked up; you don’t know what you have, and in some cases, you can be pretty deep into the fight before you get a read on what you’re actually into.

I recall one day, I was putting small chunks of the liver in the main channel, looking for a small (2–5 pound) catfish for the table. Then, I hooked him up, and he’s not fighting back much. After that, I figured I might have one that would be so small I’d toss him back. Therefore, I kept ongoing. And all of a sudden, this little fish decided he got very close to the river bank. Well, I’ve dealt with a stubborn fish before, so I cinch down the drag a bit and haul back to show the little fish who’s boss.

Other Experience To Know

I found out who was the boss. I also found out how tired a human can be. Ever fought a single fish for an hour and a half on 10lb line? Wear you out. Every time I’d gain five feet, he’d get grouchy and spool out twenty. I’d gain five back; he’d retake thirty. I was doing good keeping him off the bridge pilings because I knew if he got me in there, he could rub my line against the concrete and shred it. Finally, he decided that was where he wants to go. And that’s where he went. It was 10lb line, so I don’t think he was a monster, but I’m guessing he was a good bit over 15lb for sure. I did a line inspection. And the last 18 feet of my line stretched and clouded out. A little bitty kitty fish can’t do that.
