Why is catching trophy catfish so addicting? I was thinking about this the other day, and I came up with a pretty good theory. I think it's purely the roller coaster of emotions that you go through while you're fishing. Once you're all set up either in the boat or on the bank and have all your lines in the water you are in such a relaxed state. You might be in this relaxed state for quite some time if the fishing is slow. You're heart rate is nice n slow and you're blood pressure is down. Then in the corner of your eye you see a rod get hammered, drag peeling out of the rod holder.....your heart starts racing a bit and your blood pressure goes up! I feel this roller coaster of emotions is what makes me want to go every chance i get. And there's a bunch of other reasons why catfishing is great. Can ya'll relate to my theory?
