Default I'm addicted!!!

After Oxbeast fished all day yesterday I talked him to fishing a couple more hours with me before sunset. Our target was striper. Ive been addicted to try and catch these fish since our charter with Brant Preacher. Anyhow, Ox and I Launched just prior to sunset and started to see bait busting the surface. The conditons seemed right but no hook ups. After about 30 minutes, Ox hooks a nice trout. I was happy for Ox since he always says he doesn't catch fish. I ended hooking one after him around 20". We fished the spot a little longer with no luck. We move to another spot and didn't have any luck either. The conditions seemed right but the fish weren't cooperating. I started heading back to another location and I get slammed. Yes, 22" striper in the yak. Now it starts to get good. We catch a few more trout and head up river and bam. I get nailed. After a few minute fight, 26" striper in the yak. Now I'm excited and Ox is about to toss me in since he hasn't caught anything else. Sorry Ox, just pure luck. We fished for another 15 minutes as we start heading in, and I get nailed. Drag is screaming. I grab the pole and he's gone. Oh well. Here are a couple pics. For those interested we were fishing blackwater. Thanks Ox for hanging in there with me. I know you were tired.

Wow! Nice stripers!! I've only caught one before and he was a about 18". I can only imagine the fight those put up.

Ox, tough luck man... I can only imagine Chaps holding a huge fish with you saying "not a word, not ONE word" I've been that guy and it sucks...

You see your problem is the fishing gods let you catch one flounder every time you fish with me. You caught that flounder earlier in the day and used up all of your good fortune.
