Default 29Aug15 where the hell was the weather man

Pop up storm early morning out on the gulf 4-6 on the edge and pass. It was supposed to be calm!!! Lightning was touching down and boats where still heading out and some where running back in! I decided to play it safe stayed within the navigation chanel outside the pass just to see if the seas would pick up, sure enough it did. Hope everyones staying safe out there.

The storms eventually passed and broke apart by 10am but the chop was still nasty. Heard there were water spouts at 25miles out while guys where trying to get back.

Ended up with a cooler full of spanish. Caught in the bay

Always better to play it safe and just go fishing another day. I've been kayaking and in a jon boat when random storms popup and it is never fun. Glad you made the right decision

Those guys were nuts winds gusting at 20mph and lightning tochdowns. I love to fish but, dang I couldnt muster the balls to brave that... just never know what a little storm can turn into... its was forcasted to be flat to begin with.

Yea a radar can help, but my 2 eyes just got a glimpse of how fast the gulf can turn on you.



Be careful out there guys, I was in disbelief when I watched boats drive towards the lightning strikes, while others were running from it.

Ya NOAA screwed up today. We did the same thing. Caught bait, made it to the last buoy, and then turned right back around. Loaded up our cooler with spanish as well. Ours were in the pass though.

we ran out early with that storm to the east and drifting to the north east. Well as we got close to the edge it started moving SW. We trolled around in 150-300' for a bit and saw a window and headed back to the barn stopping to catch an AJ on the way. Saw 11 different waterspouts within 5 miles of us... it was definatly not a smart day to be out in a 23' center console. (oh yeah and we long armed the fish for some fun)

We started out from the house this am, made it to the Flying J, fueled, and turned around because of the lightning. Oh well, next week it's snapper season again.

Headed out SW from Perdido Pass. In the trough on the way out, not too bad. Caught big snapper to release, big trigger to release, and 3 bobos for the crabs.

Coming back in (21 miles) was nasty. 4s and 5s by the bunch. Would run the trough then the trough would swell up to a whitecap. Made it in by 1:30 and hit Flora Bama Yacht Club for some awesome eats! Put 30 grateful pinfish back in the holding pen for next time.

We did three miles out in my 19' bay cc out of Pcola pass, it SUCKED, caught two spanish and a massive bobo, but that was it. I have NEVER gotten nauseous near shore but I was sick as hell today, didn't throw up but man felt bad, ran into some EASY 5-6 footers. Came back in the bay then went back out again, then finally gave in to mother nature and went to McRae for some solid ground to walk on. I imagine the bed will be rockin and rolling tonight.
