Not Florence

Things are active so something else may pop, but I don’t see it yet

Don't worry, Kroc... two more waves came off the continent. Bowling alley is lined up.

Florence won't affect the Gulf Coast, but Northeast Florida still within the realm of possibility

Have to wait for Sunday's run in order to get a better handle on what's happening.

Euro and GFS are starting to converge (rather the GFS is starting to get closer to the Euro)

Yep its that time of the year. Irma was almost exactly one year ago. Next two months could be dicey.

yup, your trip to Hatteras is very chancy, at best.


this thing is taking aim, your only hope is that it speeds up, not slows down.


After Florence, Isaac is looking to move toward the gulf and/or south Florida.


While Helene is tracking as a fish-storm, staying out to sea.

As of mid-day today, almost all the models have converged to put the storm's landfall booming onto the Carolina's somewhere. Rainfall associated with the storm is going to be a pretty major deal, too. Some places north and inland of landfall will be seeing more than a foot, and that's if it doesn't stall and drop more than that.


With that all heading our way, what are chances of getting in a day's fishing, maybe in the Bay between now and then? The beaches will be roughening some, but will that make for interesting opportunities?

I?d say the chances are close to zero that I?ll get any part of next week. I?m actually hoping they order an evacuation so I can get my money back. That way I can give it a month and head down when the real fishing starts.

if you are there, you have to check conditions and see. It's a little early for any epic action, but with bait around, rough surf... IF the water is still clean, then some good action could be had.


Generally early in a blow is better, like the first day or 2, then later, when the surf gets totally silted up and brown.


Sometimes, hitting some epic action is just showing up. When I could cruise by everyday, that was the case.


Then you keep a log and you can go back and check how conditions match in the future.


Bay is generally a better bet this time of year anyway but then you have other influences from rain, depending on where you go.

I remember a few days before Sandy there was some great action off the surf. I remember catching some monster blues in the 10-15lb range. You just have to hit that sweet spot before water gets too dirty and rough. Looks like NJ will be spared from Florence for the most part.
