The smell of 2 cycle outboard exhaust lingering in the air on an early morning while the sun is rising. The second best thing is that mushy feeling on your line after feeling a hard "thump" on your jig. If you have experienced this before you know what to do next.

Waking up 20 minutes before the alarm clock, kissing my wife on the forehead while she's still sleeping and saying I love you; then walking outside in the dark and hearing the birds chirping on the way to the barn where I encounter a sparkling red/black Triton awaiting action. Everything after this is icing on the cake.

By the way, the worst part: BUYING GAS ON THE WAY!!!

How about culling out a 3 pounder because you just slid a freshly caught 3.5 into the livewell?? It makes it even sweeter when you have a club member close by to witness the entire event.

Heh heh heh. ;D

That DOES sound pretty good, but I've never gotten to ride with a "pro".  All I do is tow around Blakstr1, and I just position the boat so he can't "back boat" me.

Catching my first fish @ 6 years old....I remember once i caught it i never wanted to go back home.I wanted to stay out on that little pond we were at all day.

I'm waiting for my little guy to get a little bigger so i can take him fishing with me.He's a year and a half old.Watching him catch his first fish is probably gotta be the sweetest thing for me.

What an awesome thread to read. I am new to the site and this thread alone makes me love this site. This is truly what fishing is all about.

When I go fishing with a buddy who isnt a die hard. They always ask me how I can stay on the lake or river for 6 hours when we arent catching anything. I try to explain to them that while catching a bass on every cast is great. It's really about the peace and serenity of being on the water. The sounds the smells the sights. I guess its something you either love or you dont.

The other thing for me is watching my 3 girls go to war with a 5 inch gill. To them it might as well be a 6 pounder. I also love the look in there eyes when I reel in a nice bass. I know theres at least 3 people in the world who think I am better than Kevin Van Dam.

I'll have to Ditto most of the other posts here - taking my special needs son out fishing for the day! Nothing better in life than to see him grinding goldfish into the rear deck carpet while trying to use them for bait to smiling ear to ear wet to the shoulder saying "dad - fish are slippery" chasing them around in the livewell.

Sounds like my one 'little' brother years ago when we were supposed to be bluegill fishing and I turn around to see him in the pond up to his waist trying to get bluegills to take worms right out of his hand. Which they proceeded to do.

Takein your best buds out on a lake they only have heard the name of. Not knowing the diffrence between a largemouth and a smallie. Teaching them how to use a softplastic bait and how to set the hook.

Getting them to catch their first fish in years, just to have them out fish you years latter and think they are the shoot.

Little things like this drives me to fish everyday, just so I can past on my knowledge.

i think its when you are using a type of lure or rig that u never used befor and u catch your firt fish on that lure or that rig . then u have confidence in something that a couple mins earlier didnt have any confidence in, just the feeling that you know that you have just improved and made your self that much better.

My best moment was when my 20 year old daughter asked to do a tournament with me. She wanted to now why I love fishing so much. I had her help me the night before. I went out purchased her shimano rods and reels of her own. Set them up and tied on lures. Left at 4 am for long ride to ramp. I couldn't get her to stop asking questions. I told tournament director I wanted to be last boat out for safety reason s with my daughter. Some of the othere guys through some cheap shots at me for having a girl in the boat in such a large tourney. My daughter quiclky put them in there place. We went out to our spots and on our third stop we hit them. Schools of 3 lber's were coming up as we neted each fish. She would hook a bass, I would drop a extreme bass tube flip the bail open. after netting her fish I told her to grab the rod and set the hook. After our fourth fish flopping aound in the boat she yelled thats enough lets get them in the live well. After 30 plus bass we headed back to wiegh in. As we entered the marina she leaned over and kissed me on the cheek. Dad I loved our day and I reallize why you love fishing so much. We came in 10th some great pics were taken. She slept all the way home. My little girl moved to Britsh Columbia last week She calls me or e-mails me to ask how the walleye are hitting.
Dad's little girl for ever :'(
