A little bit breezy out today.

Postby Turkeyman » Thu May 22, 2008 10:42 am

Is this ever gonna quit? I have several buildings with roofs blowing off, and it is to dangerous to send people up to fix them. Sustained winds in Modesto and Turlock at 23-24 mph with gusts to 31. I also have had about 1 acre of dirt blown into my pool. Crazy. I hope you guys are careful if your brave enough to fish in this weather. Good luck. I'm thinking a 1/16th oz darter head on 6lb test would be the ticket today. HAR HAr. Be careful today and this weekend driving on and off the water. Good luck

Crazy is right, just had one of the best days on the water. Had 4 fish over 10lbs, cant belive I was sticking toads in the white caps. All fish were caught dropshotting a 4" green weenie on 6lb flouro, 1/8oz weight about 10 miles west of the Antioch bridge. Its a good thing I have a 20lbs thrust trolling moter mounted on my 10'ft alu deep V or I would have been blown right offf the water. Still cante belive the toads I found!!!

I live in Tracy and its done broke 2 of my 20' palm trees (what a mess) came down on my boat and house, My little pond in the front yard is caked with debries, blew over the kids street Basket Ball hoop and the funniest thing it was trash day thier are trash cans litterly blown all over the street (empty, but still)

I got to Russo's this morning and saw rollers on the ramp :shock:

I know plenty of places to hide, but today was one of the first days I can remember thinking it's just not safe to go out.... The Tract looked like a hurricane and there was sooo much dirt and debris in the air I could barely see more than 200 yards on an otherwise bright clear day........so off to the Honey Do's :evil:

Yahoo weather claimed 25-35 mph winds predicted w the current winds when I checked at 18.... NOT! I've fished in 30mph winds enough to know they were 40+ out there today.... not good

This is the second report of Big Girls down that way. gsc686s said 10 miles west of the Antioch bridge. My other source said by Pittsburg! I though the water was to briny for Bass that far down.

O by the way it is windy outside!

called and talked to Lisa today at Russo's.
She said that they were not letting boats launch there because it was too dangerous today.

Glad i went out yesterday. still got blasted with sand all day and took a wave over the bow coming in. I found sand and dirt in places i didnt know i had to hide it in. doh! :shock:

Uh, talk about nuts... we've had several tornados touch down in the general area where I live this afternoon and evening! I'm in effect on tornado watch right now! The closest one was reported maybe two miles from my house, if that.

What a crazy weather year for sure!

I was on Clear Lake today and it was no joke. 6 foot rollers on the main body. Really good fishing though, best five 28 pounds with a 10 pound kicker that my buddy got on this crazy looking 1oz jig that he made. Funniest looking jig ever but none the less very effective.

25-35? Jeez, you guys are lucky. Wednesday we had 50+ down in Palmdale, we had pretty light stuff here because the passes we're draining everything into the valley. Couple years ago we had 70 mph winds that ripped 5 or 6 roofs right off and broke telephone wires like 2lb. test. Nasty man, just nasty.
