    Default Winter Kings

    Friend and I had the itch to get out and do some fishing. So, I decided to book with Josh Brooks and the Huntress. Turned out to be a great day on the water. Josh and Cody worked super hard to get my friend and I our limits of Kings. Great folks, great conversation and an overall great time. If you have the itch, I highly recommend heading out on the Huntress.


    Cheers,

    My 2 is that nearly every weather report from the spit seriously under reports anything from the NE. If I see "12 kn NE I assume 20 or better. Don't know what the issue is, maybe there is a vortex around the weather station, but I can walk out the door at the house and hear the wind SCREAMIMG on the bay, but the internet says something inconsequential.

    Just curious, where are you getting your weather data from?

    I think the new spot forecast works fairly accurately around the spit area. Click on map for different location. http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick...8&lat=59.59728

    Here are some weather links that may as a quick reference for safer boating. I have more weather resources/visual aids and can explain more in depth but for a quick reference, these can be helpful to planning a safe outting.

    National Data Buoy Center, select buoy for real time data on a specific location.

    On left of wind barb: Black-Temp, Grey-Visibility, Symbol-Weather, Blue-Dew. On Right of wind barb: Altimeter, Ceiling, ID(source), windbarb.
    http://www.aviationweather.gov/

    Use to track wind pattern, can see where the clouds are moving.

    I let my dog out in the morning if he comes back all wet I know it might be raining. Plus I use the NOAA weather sites, and passage weather to plan longer trips.

    Here is the weather site I like.
    Use the zoom on the top left to get to the buoys you want to see.
    Then use the drop down on the top right for the sensor info your want.
