I am wondering what effects tropical storms in early August have on fishing. Will the fish; run for deeper waters away from the storm, hide in the bays for protection, or crash the beach for food churned up by the waves? Lets hear some opinions and experiences.

RhinoScores,
Over the Years I have found that the Fishing
seems to shut down during any Tropical Storm
or even a Hurricane.They (Fish) I believe head
for cover,like you said either offshore or into
the back.But I never heard of reports of them
Really going on the feed....Then Again When
The Winds Get Above GaleForce to Storm Force
Most Fishermen Hide Also...

The Swells are already starting to build.
I will keep track and try to get some shots
of the beach if this storm comes up the coast..
Here is a Shot of the Wave Action last night
in ShipBottom/LBI....

I have found that a few days after a tropical storm/Hurricane, the offshore fishing is great. I guess cuz of the currents and upwelling. I am def going run Saturday. We had a great day last year after the last storm....felix i believe came through in early sept.

Another postive is it could very well almost lierally blow some interesting fish up this way, such as cobia, Triggers, Amberjacks or Rudder fish

i have heard of many sharks that would come into the bays for shelter from storms. is it too early for the bruisers to come into the bay(great egg) and how would u fish for them?

Cobia and triggers are already here. There have already been reports on The Barn of triggers at the Sea Isle Lump and cobia at the Sea Isle Ridge and off of Margate. Last year the tuna fishing went from el crapola to outstanding after Isabel. She blew some warm, gulf stream water inshore.

Hey guys,
I am actually in Hatteras Village right now. What a difference 24 hours makes. Today is 90 with little wind. Yesterday we hunkered down in the house and experienced wind gusts over 100 miles an hour. (I have some cool pix I will post them later) It took many by surprise. Many of the charter boats lost outriggers. We were scheduled to go out today, but the capt. had to clean up a bit. We are going tomorrow. I spoke with a few of the captains and they said down here the offshore fishing is good after a storm and most of the time the fish are more than willing to eat good. Oh well back to the beach!
