    Tippin a couple cold ones after a hot day at work.
    Catching fish.
    Definitely not the mosquitoes.
    I guess it all boils down to the relaxation of it all!

    The silence of the night, the anticipation of when a bite is gonna come, the ability to leave all problems somewhere else and enjoy the outdoors. Heck just being outside. Trying to outcast the time before, trying new fishing tactics, and meeting new people. Oh and catching fish, can't leave that out.

    There is about 20 minutes of pure excitement starting as soon as you know there is a good fish on the line. The fight with the fish praying that your knots hold up while your fishing partner is scrambling around getting the net ready. The catch. The release. Then afterwords when grown men can jump around, give high-fives, hoot & hollar and basically act like a couple of teenage boys agian.

    While all of that is going on, every problem you have in the world has dissolved. At least temporarily anyways.

    The love of the outdoors and waiting for the bite. Nothing better than listening to the night sounds and catching a few fish.

    I love being outside on the water right around sunset. It gets cooler as the sun goes down, the winds die down, the water turns to glass, you can hear the crickets chirping. Its awesome to get away from the daily grind of work and all the other stresses of life and to relax while waiting for a big ol cat to put a bend in your rod.

    I love the feeling when you have fresh bait on and you put that perfect cast right where you want it. I love the feeling of getting bit before I have had time to reel in my slack. I love the feeling of setting the hook and feeling the fish still on the other end. I love being out there with a friend or a loved one and sharing the fishing experience together. There is so much that I love about catfishing that this post could easily be 5 pages long!
