I would like to be that way. I'm happy to be outside and around nature, but I fish to catch. I usually get discouraged after a few hours of nothing.i don't really fish for eating, but just the pure joy of doing it. really don't care if i catch any fish either. now if i have a really good day and catch a nice mess of fish worth cleaning, i'm firing up the fryer!
Here you'll only pull up catfish. It can get a little old but I'm still happy to catch them.I love fresh fish and always loved to fish. But fishing a stream, especially here, is pretty hard work and not much fun if I'm not catching anything. When I started hunting for bears I learned to navigate through these dense woods without getting lost. That will make stream fishing easier and I would like to try again. Last year I found a perfect stream while tracking a bear. There is no way it's getting much pressure where I was at.
My grandpa and uncles were noodlers. When I was a kid they'd bring home 40 50 60 pounders, and the thought of just being in the water with those things scared me. The biggest cat I've caught was a 10 pounder. But I've caught gillions of the good eating smaller ones.I do.
I've been hooked (lol) on River Monsters.
I want to try noodling. Looks like a blast.
I've never even got close to a 10lb'er.My grandpa and uncles were noodlers.

My greatest claim to fishing fame is I caught two sturgeons while in Idaho. One of them was about a 5 footer the other closer to 3. I was a good boy and didn't even take them from the water. One day I was fishing for trout with light tackle and hooked into a third sturgeon. He played with me for about 5 minutes then just flicked his head and went on his way.
