ince you’re reading this article, in this publication,

there’s a pretty good chance that you’re addicted

to bass fishing. If that’s the case, you may think that there’s no way you could ever get burned out on the

sport – it’s too much fun, presents constant challenges…

in some ways it occupies your every waking thought (and many of your sleeping thoughts).

But let me assure you, the more you fish the more likely you are to experience burnout. Why do you think some top pros put the boat away in November and spend the winter looking for deer, spending time with family and completing honey-dos? Granted, some fish every day all through the “offseason” but they’re the exception rather than the rule.
