The hunt, the bite or the fight, that makes you love bass fishing?
I know most will say it is all three, but I for one enjoy that tump or pull of the bite most, then then fight.

Thump on a jig is a close 2nd though...

The fight if I'm at Falcon, Monticello or Camelot Bell. Those fish pull like no other largemouths I've caught.

I enjoy solving the puzzle. Putting all the pieces together to identify a pattern. Weather/depth/conditions/location/timing/lure/presentation.

I have several reasons why I love bass fishing:

1. I love the anticipation of the strike...
2. Also, a few lakes that I fish around here, I know on any cast I could set the hook on a 10 pounder.
3. I have a love/hate relationship with the intense moments between hooking the fish and landing it.
4. I always feel like I would get bored if I don't catch a fish on every cast, but at the end of a trip where I've only caught 1 or 2 fish, I say to myself "huh, I didn't get bored.."
5. I love a good topwater or spinnerbait bite.

The bite after you have started to figure out the puzzle. So rewarding

I thought it was the catching but it must be more. I keep going back after "no catching"! :-)

Figuring it out every now and then. I love catching fish and all that stuff but I love more when I figure it out to the point that I have confidence in what I am doing. This happens so rare for me and the confidence is usually short lived but I love it when it happens. The other reason I love fishing is that I think about nothing but me and the fish for however many hours I am out. I don't think about work or anything else. I don't try to do that it just happens and it lets my mind relax and rejuvenates me mentally(might be weird but it is true for me). For those reasons, I have loved fishing for whatever swims since my Grandpa and Dad took me almost any time I wanted to go as a boy in Oregon! I would rather fish than eat and I love to eat!
See you on the lake and have a great day!

The serenity of getting on the water by myself with phone off and no way for anyone to find me for awhile. Being able to actually enjoy my coffee in the morning. Everything else is a bonus. Then the jet fleas show up with the ski boats and party people and I realize that I would rather deal with my life than those people. I just love bass fishing so it is a good 3-4 hours even without the bite or fight for me.
