Is it Worth Fishing After Trop. Storm Eta?

I have been planning on fishing Veterans Day next week.  We are supposed to get something out of this tropical storm Eta.  I'm sure whatever we get will churn up the water a bit.  I was planning on going offshore about  8-10 miles to pull cranks for grouper.

I've never fished that soon after a major storm.  Should I bag the trip or still give it a go?  Thanks!

    we fished 3 years ago in the keys after alberto passed through, we were actually there while it was passing.  went out into the gulf and it was all churned up, and they were biting like crazy.  We caught all kinds of fish.

    If you have a crew and the time, it is time to fish. Fish have to eat, with a little  luck you will be the one to be feeding them.   Above all stay safe out there.
