Yesterday I really struggled to get my customers on biting fish. We only ended up with a couple, including one over.
Today was redemption day! 34 degrees windy and heavy rain. Couldn't ask for better striper fishing weather.
Caught a boatload of fish. The rain kept me from taking many pics. Only kept one over which was deep hooked, released the rest. Kept some nice unders.
Got back the the boat ramp, loading the boat and my steering cable broke. The though of the repair cost or days missed fishing never crossed my mind. All I could think was how incredibly thankful I was it didn't happen out on the lake. What an awesome Christmas present!
Looks like I'm out till after the 1st.
Merry Christmas!

Hope the fishing holds up tomorrow. Sunny weather may mess it up. Were you dead sticking or slow rolling? Hope the fish are biting so I will ignore the cold. Of course nothing more miserable than cold and wet. I have a cable break on the lake once. Luckily I was not too far from ramp. Buddy had to sit on deck and hold motor straight. Had another break when I was launching. Had dual cables and never realized that was the second one.

You were fortunate it broke at the ramp. Mine broke a few years ago while on plane. Only running about 30 mph. But it almost threw me out and my buddy landed on top of me. Luckily I had my hand on the shifter and pulled it to neutral when it made a hard right turn Clyde. Lol
Nice fish too!
