Looks like some scattered thunderstorms for the rest of the day. Anyone gonna fish in it? It would likely be safe if we’re fishing closer to taller structures, right? Maybe hugging shores/walls mid river?
Rain don’t bother me any, just don’t want to put myself and others in danger with lightning on open water. That’s why I was thinking maybe it’s safe if you’re by a shore? Taller trees/buildings/etc around.LOL....back in the day, & yeah I'm gonna sound like an old school ?!.....we just went fishing, with the long term forecast we had....we never had an hour bye hour like today, which I watch all the time, lol....
Funny, but you learn a lot of things just "winging" it....in the day ya didn't have an option & I still believe that's not all bad today....just me....
Already had a power flicker at work, I wouldn't want to be on the water right now. Cool app im definitely getting that!
Good for going either way, not the worst report I've heard and screw the leafs - Detroit all the way!Ended up having nothing more than an extremely light drizzle near the end of the day. Never saw a flash of lightning in Wyandotte. Stayed close to the launch. Missed a good amount. Only three keepers and two shorts in about 4 1/2 hours. That’s about the worst I’ve done all year outside of my first two very very early trips when fish weren't in yet. Still a good time though. And the Leafs lost again so it’s a good day!
Lightning/electricity doesn't "fall from the sky." It goes from the Earth upwards to clouds, our between clouds.rain is fine but when they say electricity is falling from the sky its kinda writing on the wall for me...
lol its a figure of speech, but thanks for the grade 5 science lesson
I had 2 good buddy’s get struck running out of a thunderstorm under a tree..lightning hit the tree...it tossed both of them 40’ away..1 guy had just burns the other it messed him up bad and still slow to this day..but they both survived..we talk about it all the time ..we nicknamed him flash..still good buddy’s to this day.this was about 20 yrs ago..
