/əˈdikSHən/NounThe fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.
There are many things one can become addicted too in life. When one thinks of an addiction, they think of things like smoking, drugs, alcohol and other addictions that follow those lines. I’m not sure many people think of things like Bass Fishing as being an addiction.
Well, I am here to tell you that it is just as addictive and can easily become just as expensive and damaging as any drug.
Have you ever let a bill go unpaid because you needed a new rod and reel? Have you ever been counting the money in your hand wondering if you should go grocery shopping or head to Bass Pro Shops to pick up those latest lures? Ever been asked by a very attractive woman to go shopping for thongs and turn her down because the weather was just right for heading out to try and catch that personal record Largemouth?
I’ve been there and I am proud to say, I still am. “Proud?”, you say? Yes, proud to be a bass addict. I can’t think of anything
better in the world that sitting on my boat, looking out over the beautiful water, slinging that lure out, watching it hit the water and reeling it in with a twitch here, a twitch there then BAM!!! That line goes tight, the rod bends and the fight is on!
Landing that 5lbs horse of a bucket mouth bass get the heart pounding and adrenaline racing through the vains and you can’t think of anywhere on earth you would rather be.
So, can one be addicted to bass fishing? I am here to tell you yes, by all means, one can easily become addicted to bass fishing.
