So the forecast for the weekend was for storms and wind, but then Saturday afternoon turned out to be cloudless skies, though still a little windy. I checked the forecast for Sunday (today) and it was 0% chance of rain and low winds. So of course I got my boat and gear ready to go only to wake up to thunder and lightning. Apparently this stuff is boiling up out of nowhere... and I'm sitting home again! (at least until the storm passes) mad

I know there's always the possibility ofvthem being wrong but so far this year it seems they've been completely opposite of what happens more times than not. I guess that's Texas weather

I agree. They have really dropped the ball this spring on forecasting these storm.

Man I was just about to post this. It's so aggravating. Of course had a large cup of coffee while getting ready and didn't even check radar I mean there was little to no chance. I hook up to boat and see some lightening and the pull up radar to realize I could have slept another 2-3 hours. Now looks like it will be a late start with some added road grime.

Thanks Pete, ya jack wagon, I wish I made your kind of money to be wrong 85% percent of the time.

At least no one plays fishing shows anymore to watch while we wait for this to pass.

Alright, done complaining, now just clear up and let's go fish!

I usually just go fishing, I don't pay much attention to the weatherman.

He is pretty good with wind and wind speed, but rain and stuff like that is hit and miss.

If I went fishing based upon the weatherman, I would of missed many a days.

Orange Spinner Bait time. Get on out there and load the boat.

Same here. Loaded the boat this morning and then went back to sleep. Was going to wait for it all to pass but doesn't look like that's going to happen any time soon

All you're ever going to get from them is an educated guess.
When it's Spring in Texas that's pretty dubious at times.

I rarely let the weather forecast dictate whether I go or stay.
If you're going, then go. Most times the weather changes a lot over the course of a single day.

Besides, the best fishing is often in the worst weather.
And if you let wind or rain effect your decision you won't fish much here in the Spring.

Don't mind the rain, but when I see lightning all around while loading the boat, it's time to sleep in and let it pass.

Weathermen are wrong a lot. Biggest waste of time on the local news program.

Left the boat out uncovered yesterday. Planned on cleaning it up this morning.
Now I've got to wait for sunshine to dry it out. bang

Saturday was definitely the better opportunity.....I had planned on hitting it EARLY (4:45 launch).
HA! After a three hour delay, I stuck 9 at Athens in semi-perfect conditions.
Today looks rough. Think I'll let this cold front slide on by.
Night fishing starts in Two weeks for me!
