High Tide And The Surf Is Wide
GALE WARNING … Well it is raining, again. If you are up north the snow has people all jammed up. It wasn’t supposed to snow as much, but the temperature dropped just a couple of degrees and here we are with more snow. Ever notice the first snow no matter how little there is the accidents are out of control?
The surf, due to the wind is very wide and expect to see that all day tomorrow. We are looking at rough seas and a gale warning into Friday afternoon. If you are going to venture to the surf to fish be careful of the rip currents and random waves that can sweep you off your feet.
Saturday is looking okay weather wise for the beach clean up and the seas should be a bit calmer by then, but you know how it s here. Our weather changes constantly.
Fishing is possible if you can get out of the weather. Striped bass love this rough stuff even the resident bass.
