    Am asking this question to see, what each of you get from catfishing? For me its a relaxation thing, a time to clear my mind, and actually enjoy life free from stress,a zen thing, and the excitement from catching a few good fish does'nt hurt!:eek:oooh:

    Fishing in general is a passion of mine. It's relaxing and it was/is always a way for my dad and I to bond and have a good time. Catfishing in particular excites me, I love waiting on that one hog. Nothing like sitting back, relaxed, and to look over and see your rod doubled over in a rod holder. It gets my heart racing:cool2:

    Relaxing and recharging, just slowing down and enjoying the outdoors.

    I'm just weird I guess....It's my only drug. When I fish, I'm on a mission - and I work hard at it. What I don't umderstand is why my wife cross knits and scrap books.... that is wacked! lol

    Everybody up there ^ already hit it on the head. Why wouldnt you fish for them. Pound for pound they put up 1 hell of a fight. Better than ANY other fish I have ever caught. That includes the sturgeon I caught last summer & lemme tell ya, that was a fight.

    because they are the best hitting, hardest pulling, tastiest, biggest, most challenging fish close to home. relaxing some times but often intense too! its a fine mix of lazy and full on assault. lol

    the beers arent bad either.

    I got tired of chucking lures cast after cast and maybe catch afew while be worn out at the same time. Catfish are under utilized as a fish population which means there are more of them and big ones at that! Try doing that with bass fishing or crappie fishing? Bass and crappie are fun to catch but there are too many people fishing for them these days with all of the tournements going on. They are heavily pressured and most do not turn them free to get bigger. Ive caught big bass and a huge crappie but there is nothing like catching a fish the size of buick!!!! The anticipation of a 100lb fish at any moment when your poll is being drug off the boat is a high that can not be matched by any other type of fish that iI have encountered yet.
