Is it just me, or is it awfully quiet in the Gulf? There hasn't been a single tropical storm in the gulf so far this season which officially began June 1st. There's actually been three small tropical storms so far, but they haven't been inside the Gulf. The NOAA has predicted this hurricane season to be a busy one. Looking back at the archives, in most years past, we would've already seen numerous tropical storms and at least one or two smaller hurricanes by now. Is this just the calm before the storm (pardon the pun)?

I'm only bringing this up because.....well.....we really need some rain!! And because I think it's interesting how hard we try to predict mother nature and she always slides us a trump card and says "Guess again fools!".

I'm watching the weather and the minute they predict rain, I'll be in my boat, soaking a bait WITHOUT rain gear on!

Come on fall!

God has a sense of humor... and I think one of his favorite jokes is making weather forecasters look like fools!

But I agree, storm season has been quiet it seems. Maybe it is just because we have been looking - hoping for some good rain?

My wife booked us on a family vacation - cruise in early August - probably guarantees a major storm then!

My wife reminded me yesterday that we haven’t had ANY rain for over a month now. We are camping at RayBob this week and the water level is dropping before our very eyes.

And this HEAT!!!

It was 102F yesterday afternoon and felt like 150F, humidity up the wazoo and it ain’t pretty.

It is 82F already this morning, never got below that last night.

Roll on fall…

Well I could go into a big long diatribe about La Nina and the effect it has on the gulf stream water temperatures but it's all BS. Ken is right, the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of men. It was 105 here in McKinney yesterday and felt like 110. I love this time of year to spend with the grandkids in the pool. But it does make fishing a grind. BCB, your lovely bride is correct. We are 39 days without rain officially. And we are 2 days over the seasonal average for triple digit days with half of July and all of August and September to go yet. And as you all know we can still hit the century mark in October...

I will be out there again tomorrow, Lord willing, and I have a couple ideas after the trip yesterday evening. Drifts are going to be short or I may even anchor in mid depths. Stay tuned.

Funny was just talking about hurricanes and no rain.......I with you, think it the calm before the storm. Could be wrong, but its been toooo dry and no rain for too long.

You can ask any south Texas dove hunter and they'll tell you it's true, but come September and opening of dove season the rains will come and scatter the birds.
Those stock tanks that had the doves congregated on won't do you a bit of good, but those tanks will fill up!

Climate alarmists predicted a much heavier than usual amount of hurricane activity this year, back in March. Now, crickets.

Nothing seems to work. I've washed my truck twice in the last month and still no rain mad
