You might be addicted to bass fishing if...

Recommended Posts

you get up earlier on your day off than you do for work.

catching a bass negates any plans to head home soon, no matter how long you've been fishing.

You have more lures than tools, and your an auto mechanic

You have one truck, but three boats

Your phone has more bassfishing apps and sites, than phone numbers

You can get lost driving in one town over, but any lake within 300 miles are no problem

Your wallet pics went from your kids to your personal best.

Your xmas presents went from sox and ties, to bps gift cards

Back to school time costs less than that months tackle warehouse order

I call that the mid-day motivator. You usually hook it or catch it on slow days.

...You are driving down the road, looking at the hillsides and imagining where the fish would be if it was all underwater.

.... you and your girlfriend have agreed that you can get a bass mount before you even agree on decorations for the new apartment.

.... you and your coworkers spend more time talking bass fishing than selling fishing gear to customers.

.... you own two seprate Bill Dance bloopers DVDs.

.... seeing any body of water has you saying "I wonder how a spinnerbait would do"

You choose your fishing friends by who won't blab or doesn't own a boat to get back to your sweet spots instead of choosing people you enjoy. I just realized I'm an a hole after reading that back to myself.

A trip to the zoo/aquarium has you salivating at the thought of throwing a lure in there and catching the endangered species.

If your wife (or husband or whatever..no judgement here...lol) goes with you to your fave lake and you are the only ones there and she decides to get frisky and you decline because the "bite is on".

 

 

of course, I wouldn't know anything about that.:D

.... you have waited an hour in your truck listening to podcast waiting on the rain to die so you can go put the kayak in and go chase lunkers.

I live in the flat lands of Illinois and anytime I'm driving outside the state, this is what I do.

You ask the busty blond bending over in front of you to move so you can see the crankbait display better.

You've stood waist deep in a cold river for 5 hours without a bite but complain about the air conditioner temperature control not working.

You've ever wished you had a third hand because it's a pain holding one fishing rod between your legs while casting another.

You spend your off season doing projects geared toward next season. 

You keep spare parts for your outboard, trolling motor, electronics, reels along with extras of your favorite lures in a special compartment of your boat, but never think to check your spare tire's air pressure.

You know exactly where to find that bone colored Spook knock off that you've had for five seasons but never used, but for some unknown reason can never remember where you laid your keys down this morning.

You check the extended weather forecast two weeks prior to a one day trip with some guy you met last week.

One more cast turns into two more hours on the water, getting caught in rush hour traffic, and dealing with an irritated spouse upon your return, but you find yourself repeating this scenario frequently because it's so worth it.

You are the only one on campus that is awake on Saturday morning

You see everyone heading out to party friday night as you are carrying your fishing stuff back to your dorm

You have to come up with ways to store waders in a backpack so you won't be judged too harshly

Your professor asks "how does vegetation tell us when we are in a wetland?" and you think to yourself "when the plants look like punching material"

When you're at the lake with the family for a holiday weekend pulling skiers and happen to have your favorite combo set up and ready next to the driver's seat so you can make a few casts every time you stop for any reason.  

When you see bait fish surfacing from the dock while you're friends are swimming and cast over them to try and get in on the action.  (just one Striper would make this worthwhile)

When you rig up a rod holder in your SUV and keep at least one rod handy (usually 3-5) on every family road trip, just in case you get a rare opportunity to fish.

Everywhere I go on vacation I look for likely fishing holes before I go. I'd never make it in the desert.
