Default Fishing the Storm

I went out in Boston Saturday day and Sunday evening. Saturday was very flat and while we got some bites and saw a few bass taken on another boat, I didn't get any myself. It was obvious they were bitting and a friend got five keepers later that evening as things started to get a bit rough. Sunday we scored 5 keepers in my boat along with a bunch of big blue fish. I'd always throught a storm shuts down the bite but I learned something new. If I hadn't read posts on this site saying sometimes a storm can help the bite I probably wouldn't have gone out there and tried.

Biggest problem is the fact that the fish don't read the fish reports!

Contrary to popular belief Float, I'm pretty sure the fish in Maine read this board quite often.........soooooooo, I'm definitely NOT going to the beach tonight to float worms, nope, wouldn't even think about it

Congrats on the fishing bostonfisher! I'd imagine it works a bit different for us surfcasters than the boaters. Sand and weed kicked up along the shore I'd imagine would shut things down, but go out to deeper water and I'm sure there is less turmoil down deep where the fish are more or less unaffected...or even turned on because of it.
It is not fear that grips him... only a heightened sense of things.

I don't know about the storm theory. I was taught growing up that stormy weather, right before, and even during, makes the fish put the feed bag on. Here in southern Maine on Saturday, had some rough surf, but not too bad, managed 14 fish, chunking bunker, 3 of which just missed the 40" mark. On Sunday, the surf was very mad, throwing herself all over the beach & rocks. I got a late start, didn't start fishing until 8:00AM or so. First fish was a nice 40" cow that took me for a ride, thought she'd cut me off on the rocks, but I managed to turn her and landed successfully. Only caught 5 fish total. I feel that if I went out earlier, and fished the entire outgoing tide, I would have caught some more. This isn't the first time that I have fished in a storm, and for the most part, yes I have caught fish.
