Default Post Fishing Syndrome?

Well it all started on Sunday as some of you may already know I went fishing and I was prosperous! prob 15-18 in all. But there were some fish that I didnt catch that were teasing me and my popper. For 5 minutes just wrestling with my popper but not taking it and all I could do was just stand there and wait for the 35 incher (estimate) to lock on and for me to set the hook... Although this never came! Thats where POST FISHING SYNDROME comes in...All throughout today (at school) I could think about was the fish that I could have caught the feeling of locking one on. I cant concentrate on anything, I have images in my head of large stripers jumping out of the water with a hook in the side of their mouth with a line that leads to my reel. I cant get anything out of my head, Its all I think about, Its all I dream about, Its everything that goes on with me throughout my day! I cant wait to get back out there! Could this be real has this happened to you?

dude, those are just the beginning symtoms... is what makes striper fishing so addictive.. the fact that the next cast can be either a2lb fish or a 40lb fish... no other kind of fishing gives you that...

top water is truely a blast that is for certain.
wait til you start jigging, when the smallest pick-up is usually the biggest fish... that'll drive you nuts... the big slams are usually the little guys..

LOL... careful, it can take over your life :shock:
