It’s a nice sunny day.

The birds are chirping and there’s not a cloud in the sky.

Sounds like a perfect day to go play some baseball or catch some rays.

Or you could go fishing.

There are plenty of people who enjoy sitting on the water waiting for a bite.

A lot of people’s desire to fish comes from their roots.

“My dad got me interested in fishing ever since I could walk,” says junior Nick Caton.

“My uncle used to take me fishing and got me into fishing,” says senior Jacob Houchin.

Junior Brenden Bergen’s father was also the one that planted the passion of fishing in him.

There are many different spots to go fishing in California.

“I usually go up in Bishop or the Huntington Pier,” says Bergen.

“My favorite spot to fish is in the rivers and creeks of Bishop, California,” says Caton.

Houchin spends most of his time fishing in the waters of Lake Perris or Diamond Valley.

Caton loves to fish and will spend a lot of his time doing so when he goes.

“When I go fishing, I spend as much time as possible during the day, usually several hours,” he said.

Bergen loves to fish as well as he spends “about 6-8 hours a day”  waiting for a bite, he said.

Spending hours on end in one place can test one’s patience but that doesn’t matter.

The waiting always pays off as there is the possibility of getting that big one.

“The biggest fish I have ever caught is about a 10-12 pound Shovel Nose shark off of Newport Pier,” says Caton.

The biggest reason that people fish is feeling a tug on the rod and then reeling the fish up to you. It is a feeling of success.

“I would say when you bring the fish up on land,” says Bergen.
Caton seconds this.

“The best part about fishing is the rush of energy you get when you feel the bite of a fish on your hook; there’s no other feeling like it,” he said.

The quality time and the cherished memories is the main reason a lot of people enjoy fishing.

“The best part about fishing is hanging out with friends, having a good time, and catching fish,” says Houchin.
