    It's still early for the weekend.

    Besides, before you know it it will be 93 with 88% humidity and not a breath of wind.

    If I plan on going, count on it blowing with 3-4' seas

    If I change my mind Saturday at 6 am, it will lay down smooth

    Okay, plan on going Saturday and I'll run offshore.

    It's getting absurd. You guys should plan on going next Saturday--it's my daughter's fourth birthday so the weather will be perfect.

    I like the wind. Driving my boat into a 20 knot headwind is the only time it feels fast.
    The two best times to fish is when itís raininí and when it ainít. ĖPatrick F. McManus
