According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, all boats under 26 feet should be out on the bay doing calisthenics. This was on the NOAA website today: "FLORIDA BAY: 430 AM EST THU JAN 5 2012: SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE UNTIL WINDS DECREASE."
Guess they're entitled to a forget a word here and there. And the forecast:
Thursday: NORTH WINDS 15 TO 20 KNOTS EARLY...DECREASING TO NEAR 10 KNOTS BY NOON. BAY WATERS CHOPPY...BECOMING A LIGHT CHOP.
Friday: NORTHEAST WINDS NEAR 10 KNOTS. BAY WATERS A LIGHT CHOP.
We'll be fishing on Friday...really!
Meanwhile, back in Connecticut: "The Thames River supports one of the most famous wintering populations of stripers on the East Coast and they can be caught from the shore in Norwich Harbor all winter long. The best time to fish is after dark, but when the tides are right they can be caught at any time." Read the article at: NorwichBulletin.com
