Dedication to fishing has put some of us into some very interesting situations. In the past I have found myself fishing in some of the worst weather nature has to throw at me. When I was about 16 I went fishing with my uncle in Illinois and we went to Clinton Lake. I beleive the time was late fall and the weather was getting worse by the hour. because my uncle was a recon marine back in his glory days I think this played some part in our choice of days to go out on the water. I think the averag temp was in the 50's and the rain was starting to come down as soon as we hit the water. For some ungodly reason as soon as we were underway he basicaly went as fast as he could while it was raining to a nearby cove to fish for some bass. The entire time I could plainly remember my fingers being cold as ice and the weather just would not let up. It rained the entire time and it was just about as cold as it could get for a fall day. I don't even think we caught any keepers that even would help us fele any better about how that day went. As many BOC members as there are I know there would be plenty of extreme fishing stories out there. Please give the gift of extreme fishing and donate your story here it can be from worst weather conditions to days that ended so horribly that you just wanted to quit fishing forever. either way this is the place to let everyone know your story.
