Wheeeeeeeeeeew. I was out yesterday with Father and son Gary and Carl. And ya think Saturday during the El Cheapo Sheepshead Tournament was bad? Well, you at least didn't get rained on, for 5 solid hours!
Let me interject some editorial commentary for a moment; WEAR CLOTHES, per the weather. Than, multiply that times at least two or three!!! I'll leave it at that.
We didn't do much of anything. The wind whipped the rain fell and as we tried the jetties at first with no luck on Trout, Yellowmouths, Sheeps, or Reds. I knew all other areas were gonna be futile, if the jetties weren't going to produce. A "Major Front", shut everything down.
Looks to me like we're in a WEEKDAY PATTERN, folks. You know how the weather guessers on the TV local yokal news tell you about patterns? Well you're getting it here too.
Weekenders don't seem to be fairing all that well. This past weekend is a EXAMPLE.
Remember all those reports I did, back in January when it was 70 degrees and sun shine, telling people to get outa the winter cabin and get to FLA. now! Well, cabin fever finally struck and we're in that "transitional time of year" now, and here comes the WINDS & RAIN, with it all.
