Big Fish

Life is best tasted in small bites...

Sometimes you want to just jump into something with everything you've got. Go for it 100%, no matter what the consequences are.

But, beware... you just might bite off more than you can chew.

Just like this bass I saw wriggling on the surface of Lake Chicamauga in Tennessee...

We were able to bring it on board the boat and remove the (still alive) fish from its mouth, but the poor bass was so exhausted from his attempts to either swallow or expel his potential meal that, despite our best efforts to get him swimming again, he didn't make it.

His plight reminded me that, although it can be tremendously beneficial to go for the "whole enchilada"... if you're not prepared to handle it, you'll wind up choking on it. Just like Mr. Bass here.
