The Weather Is Rather Nautical Today
The Seas Are Rough Today My Friends, Small Craft And Rip Current Advisories For Friday The Thirteenth
The winds are supposed to lay down by Sunday, in the mean time we have Small craft advisories and rip current advisories into Saturday night. High tide is at 8 AM and the east wind is pushing water onto the the beaches. Northside will take a bit of a beating. Water is to the dune line in Bethany Beach. I wouldn’t rule out a little inland bay flooding with the east wind push into tomorrow on the next high tides.
Last week w cancelled the DSF’s Summer Surf Fishing Summer Slam Series 9 until tomorrow due to Hurricane Dorian storm surge last weekend, whoops. It will be a little nicer tomorrow than today, but not by much.
Be careful driving the beaches watch your six on the incoming tide later today into this evening. Out of the way places to fish would be better to avoid the wind, like Ohio. There are some places you can get behind structure to avoid the east winds. The Lewes canal for one, and bubble gum beach near the Coast Guard Bulkhead at the Indian River Inlet.
