Some of our best fishing has been in the rain. Not sure what the effect is, but it seems to put the fish on the bite. Last November during gullywasher rains in NWW we had onefish after another, channel bass, blues and stripers. Go fishing Saturday, and another plus side of the rain,you'll just about have the beach to yourself.

What SURFRAT said!!! :D some of my best and most memorable days in the rain,, have a good one
I have to start somewhere.
Like Chtrugs, I was worried about the weather. They weather reports kept saying rain all day on Saturday. But I decided to go fishing anyway.
Went to the tip of the Hook. Got there at 6:30am. Caught about 12 blues. Most were small. Schools were a little too far out.
Then it got very windy and the fish stopped biting. It did rain, but nothing like they said would happen.
