Took a trip to deep creek yesterday. The forecast before I left was 10kts and 2 ft. I used the graphical as well as the text and my radio. We get down there and the weather was atrocious. Probably 20+ mph gust with swells that were often 6 ft. We didn't even get in the water. As well pulled up the guide fleet was all screaming off the water @ 11 in the morning.
So my question would be is there any better way to tell what the actual conditions are before heading out? It was a pretty rough 6 hours of driving to tow the boat down look at the water and turn around.
