To each his own but I just don't get it. I know there is always the suspense of wonderin what is gonna take your bait. Ya never know and thats some of the allure of goin cattin. To me catchin is the bonus not the quest. Sittin in a boat just jawin and bustin on each other is the best part. Don't get me wrong. I wanna catch fish and I take the rite tools to do so. Over the course of the year I take a whole bunch of people out on the boat. First timers with thier kids and folks that have been before. To me that is the enjoyment. Spend the time on the water and learn it. It will produce tons of smiles for you and those ya take fishin.
