It's not as good as fishing before the storm. If the winds of the storm are blowing towards the coast, the seagrass makes the fishing unbearable. If the winds are blowing off the coast, the waters turn muddy.FishFrenzy said:How is the fishing after a big storm, like the coming??? Is it worth even trying?
During Izzy most piers made it with some fixable damage,but some bit the biggun as well.. As you said it depends on how long it has been up and how well it is built.. Also depends on the bottom around that pier as well. If it has a sandbar formed at or near the end,it won't go down as quick as if it is deep and the pilings aren't sanded in as well..Hurricane44 said:I've often wondered this question too, does anyone know what intensity that most piers begin to fall apart? Category 1 hurricane (75-95 mph) or Cat. 2 (96-110 mph), or will a TS do significant damage? I know it depends on how long the structure has existed before the disturbance, local bathymetry/geography, and other factors. Hopefully, Ernesto wont have swells large enough to do much damage! Good luck fishing, I might try to get to an SC beach on Monday!
