Everyone wishes they were a fishing guide. Every Tom, Dick, Harry & Alice, thinks it's some kind of glorious adventure day in day out.
Well, if your a regular reader of these reports, commentary, editorials, you know by now.
While you're at work, I've been up at 5am, to the bait shop by 5:30, to the boat ramp 6:45, met my customer 7:15, sat and looked at the weather and decided, "this ain't worth it" 7:30am.
It was cold, rainy, and yes.........WINDY!
I can usually deal with wind, but straight down the pike, from the EAST at 25 knots as the sun came up this morning, pushing the tide overly high. I said, forget this. While always striving for fishing excellence. If I can???
Here's the deal:
SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 PM EDT THIS AFTERNOON...
GALE WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM EDT THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY AFTERNOON...TODAY NORTHEAST WINDS 20 TO 25 KNOTS WITH FREQUENT GUSTS TO GALE FORCE THIS AFTERNOON. SEAS 6 TO 8 FEET. INLAND WATERS CHOPPY. SHOWERS LIKELY.
Now....I have a Friday charter & Saturday charter with the same 3 guys.
We maybe better trying Saturday or Sunday.
Life is just one giant scheduling nightmare sometimes.
SATURDAY WEST WINDS 10 TO 15 KNOTS. SEAS SUBSIDING TO 3 TO 5 FEET. INLAND WATERS A MODERATE CHOP. SATURDAY NIGHT NORTHWEST WINDS 10 TO 15 KNOTS. SEAS 2 TO 3 FEET. INLAND WATERS A LIGHT CHOP. SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT NORTHWEST WINDS 10 KNOTS. SEAS 2 FEET. INLAND WATERS A LIGHT CHOP.
We'll see how it goes.
Thanks, Mother Nature...... Love ya'.
