Default 1 foot my a$$

Buddy and I tried to go offshore this afternoon. Buoy was saying 1’. Actually was 2-3 with the occasional 4. Cape Horn 24XS handled it fine, but we couldn’t stay on a spot with A Rhoda’s. Sheesh, need better weather forecast!

We were trying to go 18 miles. Only made it 7 miles. I had a few spots there that looked like they had fish on em, but the Rhodan was getting pushed around like it wasn’t even on. Waves were occasionally cresting over my bow. After about 45 minutes we gave up and headed north.

That buoy report was probably right when you read it earlier. Went out 12.8 miles in my 19' Key West at 9ish and ran 34 mph going out. Came back in at 3ish and at first ran 24 slowing down to 10 as we got closer inshore!!

It built up after 1 a bunch. And all the red's we caught were too short.

Forget forecast. Here is a rule of thumb that worked for me for a long long time. For every 5 knots of wind you will have 1 foot of waves. Prolonged high wind will produce even greater waves. Find a good wind speed site, and you can figure it out more closely then they ever will. That is why we called NOAA, NOWAY!

Another rule of thumb. At 1pm, it's going to blow 15-20 out if the southwest, pretty much every day this summer.

We didn't leave the dock until around 2pm yesterday afternoon. Sure, the conditions weren't that great and the rhodan couldn't keep us on a spot, but we still caught our 5 man limit. Can't be so 100% reliant on that trolling motor, have to adjust.
