Default Weather guessers are pretty sorry!

Checked NOAA marine weather this morning at 6:30 and it said seas were less than 1 foot. Pretty bumpy crossing the bay. Cleared the jetty at Destin and turned left headed to Grayton to drift the rocks and then work back to the west looking for cobia. NOT! Wind was a steady 25 with seas running 2-3 out of the east. Sucked. Only went about 3 miles and had to come back to the west. Fished the inside alone the jetties and picked up a few small gray snapper but nothing else. Will sure be glad when the spring winds are gone and the days get a little lazier.

noaa is pronounced noway. They are never right. Go here http://fish-here.com/ and use their reef cast. They are the closest thing to right, even though weather does have surprises often.

Had Destin CG boat headed out the pass WOT while we were there. Chnl 16 had a call for a SUP in distress off Santa Rosa Beach.
If they got out beyond the 2nd bar they were in some deep Do-Do.

I saw some yakkers launching when we came in. They were in kayaks that were NOT ideal for the Gulf. They did have their PFDs on but I went by them and pointed out that it may look beautiful and calm right here on the beach but that it was nasty further out. They thanked me and as I was loading up it appeared as they listened to my advice and stayed in close. These strong north winds are no joke for paddle craft!
