Isn't it neat how when the weekend comes around and you can fish it rains all weekend?? O well.. Time to organize and sort tackle.... Clean up your gear.. and maybe make a run to the local sport shop.

A rain suit may help. I usually think that other fishermen will not go, due to rain, so it could be a good time to fish, if it isn't raining too hard or an all day rain.

Yeah the forecast says heavy rain and the radar pretty much confirms it. The muddy water doesn't help fishing either.

Week days are when I usually fish. It can rain on those days also. It does have it's advantages with less crowds. Being retired has it's advantages also.

What do you guys do in your kayaks when the lightning starts? I would love to try kayak fishing but am a little worried about being caught out in a storm.

I would have tried fishing today but when I mentioned this to my wife she said she has a Taylor coming over and I need to be here for a fitting. Something about a white coat with no sleeves or something. I wasn't really listening once she said fishing was out.

How was the water clarity wherevere you fished today?
Water is super clear here today. I imagine that will change soon. But dang if I didn't catch some huge shrimp in the cast net today, in the rain. They are every where! Good thing I'm law abiding......

Been caught in a few bad ones. First, the rods come down out of the rod holders and then all of a sudden i turn into the world's fastest paddler. Religious phrases ensue

As the old saying goes, you have as much chance of getting hit by lightening as you have of winning the powerball lottery. Or, is it the other way around?
Either way, I hope you don't let the slight possibility of a lightening strike hold you back from living your life. On the other hand, don't be foolish and head out during a storm.
There's an old song that goes:
"So when hear it thunder, don't run under a tree, there will be pennies from heaven for you and me."

Lol I got a good laugh out of that one! Being caught out in the middle of a body of water when it starts thundering and lightning is pretty terrifying. [video=youtube;lgxb1wb6_EU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgxb1wb6_EU[/video]

My boat was struck by lightning in Beufort Sc a few years ago. If I even see lightning it makes me nervous. We went yesterday morning around 5 and waited for a break in the storm. The only problem we have had with all this rain is that the oxygen level in the river and salinity is lower. Its hard to keep live bait alive and makes the bite very slow. Last Saturday we caught 18 trout and some small reds in the river pretty fast in some light rain. As long as there is no lightning im going to burn the water up.
