Songfacts®:

  • This Jimmy Yeary and Marty Dodson penned song tells of a fishing trip on a quiet lake where the youthful couple are more interested in each other than the fish. Morgan told Yahoo! Music: "I love how throughout the entire song, you think that the ol' boy is talking about one thing, when in fact he's referring to the very thing you think about but in a different way! So just absolutely love it. They payoff on that song for me was really huge."
