Having fished in all but th snow I chose thunder and lightning. Kinda th reason I posted th poll cuz I was out th door an th lightning started. As far as unfavorable conditions, some of my best fishing has been done when conditions were less than favorable for humans.
I usually won't fish in the bitter cold, and I usually take cover in a thunderstorm. Back in the summer, I was nearly lit up when my pole started buzzing with static electricity during a storm. That was scary.
Koz, that is the scariest thing I've seen in a long time. I was actually on a Va. pier as a kid when St. Elmo's Fire started coming off the rods and reels, as well as causing people's hair to stand up. Creepiest thing I ever saw.
I voted lightning, too. But I must admit I hate heat and won't fish when it's too hot, and extremely high wind can making fishing impossible. But I'm game for anything else.
I fished in sleet last winter; I've fished in driving rain; I've fished in light snow; I've fished at all hours. Fact is fishing, and particularly fall fishing, is best done in rotten weather. The colder, nastier and snottier the weather the better I usually do.
I'm already looking forward to this weekend's cold front.
I guess I'm just spoiled with the 85 degree temps loads of sunshine and lets not forget the girls in there bikinis walking up to on the beach and asking " What kind of fish fo you catch here " . Gotta love it. Telling them about the big one is a great Ice breaker .
Ill fish in almost anything. ALMOST! ill usually go in for a little while in lightning and cold doesnt bother me much neither does rain but the one thing that I absolutly hate when im fishin is a strong wind. But its also just me fishing is my life so what ever the weather is like when i have a chance ill still go or atleast try
Anything but lighting. I've fished when it was so hot I actually sufrered heat exhaustion, fortunately I was fishing a farm pond with the house nearby or I would have passed out from the walk. Never fished in snow unfortunately but I've been on the pier at times when the wind was so high and the temp so low that my insulated coveralls over top of my normal heavy jacket wouldn't keep me warm. Ahhhh, memories
Tight lines and popped riggers
i cant wait for a good snow storm.... first and last time i seen snow is when i was stationed at NAS oceana back in 89' or 90'...its snowed like 16 inches!i built my first snowman while drunk at 5:30 am lol
i have fished in it all but snow. havn't had the chance to do that. i was hooked up with a large shark with about 25 mph winds with rain and lighting and i was to heck with it had to fight it out. landed it, and went inside the bait shop.
ditto on the palm tree's Kozlow.. Although, not many bikinis approach me while I'm fishing..... * innocent look* wonder why........ ???????? lol I've never even SEEN snow, so I can't say I've fished when it's snowing. Did catch one of my biggest drums during one of those relentless drizzles though... I was under the 520 bridge, heading to Cocoa Beach...... I'll stay out until the lightening stats popping.....
