I was just answering another thread and decided I'd throw my two cents worth in here. Seems to me some people get to caught up in the catching part of fishing. I don't know whether its for the bragging rights or the need to prove something or the other that causes it but they are missing out. I was confined to very limited activities last year due to an injury and could only get outside when I had someone to help with my wheelchair. Let me tell you I missed going into the outdoors walking the banks (I still can't do much of that) enjoying the sunshine and the fresh air and the solitude of just being on the water, man, its great to be out again. But let me tell you about a man I worked with for years. He would fly down to Cabo San Lucas a couple of times a year and Panama or Costa Rica and come back with pictures of these huge fish and tell these exciting stories about the exotics that he was catching. When I would ask him to come out with me on my boat he would never be interested unless the yellow tail or tuna were biting and when we didn't catch anything he would be disappointed but I kept asking him to go and eventually started joining me for things like calico and sand bass, halibut, sculpin and even rock fish. Now, I don't know how many of you have been reading my fishing reports but those of you that have know I'm not the best there is at finding fish. So eventually my friend got used to not catching anything fish every time we went out and started to enjoy just being out on the water. He started doing things like bringing steaks to grill ( bought a grill for my boat) and books to read and changed his attitude. He still goes to the far off places to fish and no doubt enjoys catching those fabulous fish BUT, he still calls me wanting to know when I'll be strong enough to take my boat out again. He even expressed an interest in learning to catfish. Hows that for the proper attitude?
