I'm just curious as to why it seems to be so important to so many to catch huge fish? I fish for enjoyment and I feel staisfied if I catch anything. I will not argue that big fish are fun but it seems like people are looked down on if they don't catch huge fish. I guess the issue could be argued both ways. If I fish a whole day and catch a dozen small fish I had more fun than sitting all day to catch one big one. I suppose that having fishing partners and time occupying conversation could make a difference but fishing alone gets pretty boring when nothing happens. I release 99.9% of what I catch anyway so for me it doesn't matter what it is. Don't get me wrong, if people are after huge fish that's fine and I plan on trying for Flatheads next year at least a couple times but that will not stop me from going when I probably will not catch anything over about 12". I just think to much pressure is put on people to catch large fish and they feel bad when they can't and possibly ashamed to say they caught nothing but small fish.
