1. You look out over a pasture and imagine it under water and you decide where the fish would position themselves.
2. You hear the sentence " I must be having a problem with my lower unit cause my hole-shot is not as good as it once was" and you don't laugh and you offer possible solutions because you have experienced the same problem.
3. You have set the hook on the vibration of your shirt tail in the wind hitting the butt of your rod.
4. You apologize to/ feel bad for your boat for going fishing in another man's boat.
5. You have set the hook in your sleep.
6. You have looked at a new lure moving through the water and stated " I would hit that"..

Feel free to add to the list

I do #5 a lot. My wife doesn't think it's funny anymore because I'll wake her up.

#3...I don't set the hook, but it definitely gets my attention.

7. You ask your son how long his wedding is going to take because there is full moon that night.
8. You ask you wife how did she enjoy your anniversary because you had a great time at the tournament and cashed a check.
9. During the divorce you argue more over who gets the boat than over the kids.

Your "no.8" is FACT for me. As well as texting my daughter happy birthday from the boat,....and having her text me "happy Father's Day".

It's crazy how devoted to this stuff I am. It's also even more impressive as to how my family supports me.

11. When pitching or flipping you hit a spot that looks so good you exclaim "that should have got me bit".
#3 gets my attention more often then I like to admit.

But....

11. You research every old "pre water/lake" map you can dig up to see what the terrain looked like BOFORE it was a lake.

12. You think of buying another rental property as a means to fund more fishing gear.

My wife is so good she asks me why I'm not fishing if I take period of time off. Then she will tell me that I had better get to the lake before she kills me. I get a little cranky when I miss more then a week.
