Do you love big bluegill?
I will get this started with the obvious....rest. What do you or are you willin to give up in order to go fishing. Good thing the wife likes to fish. LOL!
Thanks Chad that would be a pleasant surprise.
I live by myself and have lots of time to fish outside of work.
I go gillin only when I'm on my own and there isn't a good bass, pickerel, or crappie bite at my usual local lakes and ponds. Also when the trout waters have been cleaned.
I don't sacrifice a thing but what I do notice is I gain a whole lot of positives that carry over in my whole life. Peace/Peace of mind/Excitement(we could all use that)/Joy/Beauty in all things in nature/patience/Fortitude/ list could go on please feel free to add
What I get out of bluegill fishing is pure joy. I'm lucky that do not have give up anything to go fishing. The girls are grown and gone now. Wife only works on Saturday and Sunday, so, plenty of free time. Lost my father last October, but the memories of all the times he took me fishing will last forever.
I dont think I have ever sacrificed anything to go fishing;; but only gained!! maybe learn of a new spot to fish at;; meet someone new and make friends with; to slow down;; see what is going on around the lake;; getting peace and contentment.
