Do You Prefer Solitude or Bigger Fish?

Think your favorite fishing spot is crowded? The Dogon people of Mali get to fish the waters of Lake Antogo in west Africa one day a year and from what I can tell it's for a purely sustenance based reason. Luckily, I think most of us do not fish to eat. I certainly will whack a fish every now and then, but I don't depend on it. Besides being completely fascinated by the video below, it got me thinking about some of the waters I regularly fish.

I certainly could fish many places where the fish are much larger on a regular basis, but living where I do this typically means either playing bumper boats or rubbing elbows all day. Personally, I'm not willing to sacrifice a little solitude for six to seven inches on my fish most of the time. Don't get me wrong, I love catching big fish but I'd rather walk a little further or row a little harder and gain a bit of solitude even if the fish are a bit smaller. How about you? Are you in it for the slabs only or does the wind whistling in the trees do it for you?
