Does Size Re­ally Mat­ter?

SA Bass - - Bass Addict -

Every­one is al­ways striv­ing for big­ger things, big­ger bakkie, big­ger boat, big­ger se­lec­tion of tackle, big­ger out­board, big­ger fish finder, big­ger baits and of course, big­ger fish re­sult­ing in a new PB. Some will stop at noth­ing to make sure that they have the ab­so­lute best when it comes to this sport we call bassin. I’m sure that some in­di­vid­u­als will even get to the point of star­va­tion just in or­der to spend that ex­tra cou­ple of bucks on that some­thing big­ger. And in their mind will give them the edge over oth­ers. Some in­di­vid­u­als not only strive to have big­ger toys, but also way big­ger bank ac­counts, and if you know any­thing about this sport, once you get to a cer­tain point, it does help to have a big­ger bank ac­count in or­der to pay for all the big­ger things.

When it comes to the adage that big­ger is bet­ter, I sup­pose there is some truth in the sen­ti­ment, but as with ev­ery­thing in life, there is al­ways a flip side to ev­ery state­ment. How many an­glers that do own that mas­sive boat with all the bells and whis­tles get their monthly copy of SA Bass, their favourite bassin magazine and look at the photos that read­ers have sent in and think to them­selves... I wish I could get a fish that big? In com­pet­i­tive an­gling, it is ad­van­ta­geous to have a big­ger and faster boat and the big­ger side, top to bot­tom 360
