Today
NE winds 15 to 20 kt. Waves 1 to 2 ft...building to 3 ft in the late morning and afternoon.

And to my surprise, I looked out the window and there's not on a ripple on the water (Little Creek/Pretty Lake). Fishweather.com says it's blowing from the west at 3kts...:D

PATIENCE, it's coming :eek2: ...... if you want a hour by hour forecast you need to look here FishWeather.com - Wind Forecasts. I'd say that the NMS did the right thing by posting the SCA :yes:

I thought the same thing when I got up at 4 this morning .........called Tony at 5 and we were on the road by 6 and headed out of crab creek......drifted the tubes for 4 hours in flat calm seas and no wind......headed in at 11 .......1 fish........and saw NO other boats get any either.......you didnt miss much thats for sure.

Still better than what most did !

Tony:: YOUR WELCOME

Well, we made it out to the 3rd/4th islands and had some decent action on bucktails. We had to weed through the bluefish, but finally managed my 2 keeper rockfish. Glad we were able to make it out before the blow.
