Agreed!! Just stay persistent and patient. Good luck to you this fall.

I'm not sure how it is where your at but I think Va been getting rain like crazy lately. We dealt with that hurricane than some nasty heavy rain what almost four or five days which I went fishing during the break that Thursday morning before more rain came dumping in that afternoon(landed 3 small guys on wacky)and after that cold front and all that rain to pass to hit up a pond that following Wednesday 9/14( 3 bass biggest maybe 2#) and Thursday 9/15 which I landed a 6.4# and another small one and my wife landed her a little bass. All Wed. and Thurs. came from a Chartreuse buzzbait and my wife's a Booyah buzzbait. Nothing would even touch a worm those two days. The lake we fish on that Thursday was MURKY. I don't recall much or any visibility. Now this week we are dealing with more rain, nice down pour today and I am contemplating on going tomorrow which is also post to be raining, storming.

There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.

Ha I fished during Hurricane Irene, right in the middle of the storm, caught 2 on a small purple Pond Magic buzz bait.

If there is no lightning or high winds take a chance and go fishing.

Fishing in the rain is not a problem.

It is when the cold front moves through and the skies clear that is the problem.

Just be smart and careful and watch out for slippery surfaces.

Have fun!!!! :)

Man I'd give anything to fish in some rain! Seems everytime I've gone out this year has been bright sun, hot, and calm. I'd much rather fish in some rain and wind than in calm, sunny conditions. I've got 3 different rain suits to cover any tempature, I say bring it on! :D

Like Sam said...Watch out for slippery surfaces. I am sitting here on my butt because I went out fishing right after a hard rain and slipped down a bank and tore a tendon in my ankle :(

How long till your healed? I don't know anything about a tore tendon so I hope you have a quick recovery. Are you able to walk at all?

If I can get my truck fixed today I'll be fishing this evening in the rain. Luv2fish, I'm sorry to hear about your fall. Recovering from injuries is always hard and frustrating.
