10/29 - A serious No Go....

Yesterday, I went to the boat ramp and there was about a dozen trailers in the parking lot.

Well, they picked it right.....or because it was a weekend, they just had to go. That's probably the real reason.

So, I was supposed to go this morning. I had looked and watched the "WIND" forecast flop around all week for Monday like a Bluefish on the deck. And as it turned out. I called my guys, which went from 3 persons to 4 persons by last night.

I heard it. The wind. As the cold air blew in last night, the wind was whistling thru the trees in my neighborhood. By 10pm the big tall pines branches, were whipping all around.



 

I was ready! I pulled out of the closet the foul weather pants, the water proof boots, and the Green & Blue Grundens fishing jacket, and aired them all out for this mornings useage.  "The cold air arrived on the high winds."

Next up for me "pre-booked" is Saturday. And it looks like it'll be till Wednesday when things calm down a bit.

ANY WIND SPEED ""OVER""  15 KNOTS, IS NOT A KIND WIND, WHEN DEALING WITH 4 PEOPLE. ESPECIALLY AFTER BAD WEATHER, AND 40+mph winds FROM A STORM.

Yesterday, the river looked like Pea Soup, with a bit of sand mixed in it.
