Luke has linked: the great catch of fish -- Jesus declaration that they will catch people -- the leaving everything to follow.
He says "When following me the impossible is possible. So if I tell you you will catch people, don't doubt that either." They respond by leaving everything - even the fishing where there has just been great success, to follow a new life with one who can demonstrably deliver what he promises.
This speaks to my continuing self-doubt.
