Giving me a reason to finally get my ass out of the water.

So ya its going to be cold, only issue I see is the possible 20mph winds. Not trying to discourage but man I hate being out in cold wind.

Based on the weather forecast (winds) I'm thinking I may delay my visit to Jacksonville. Any chance y'all will reschedule?

Stay safe and good luck fishing...

Sunday is looking to be on the chilly side (50's) along with winds out of the N 14-20 mph.

Looks like rain Sunday morning with wind and under 60 degrees...the only window is Saturday....

Good luck! :salute:

I might be guilty of being a fair weather fisherman this time around :surrender:

I can stand the low temps but when the wind blows it sucks. Looks like 4 folks have canceled so far. 2 others are doubtful.......


The Solo Skiff Rally will be rescheduled at a later date :thumbleft:

Maybe I can get some accessories mounted by then and have something to show. I got up this morning for a trip to be greeted by some heavy wind gusts and a nasty rainstorm soon after. So, I built a mobile stand for mine today instead to replace the temporary one I had it on. I'll have to post a pic. It is tail gait level and works well to slide the boat in and out of the truck with the bed extender.

So, how's the weather in J'ville today? Right decision to postpone SSR? :thumbright:

Not as cold as we thought and the sun was out. However, the wind was howling and it would have been rough out on Mill Cove. Looks like we did the right thing :scratch: :thumbleft:

Newby to this site and motorized yaking, just traded in a hobie outback for a solo skiff. How do you post pics? Solo Skiff not rig out yet but built a cart dolly and would like to show.

Easy way to post pic's is to upload on Photobucket. After uploading, click/copy img ling. Then paste link to JKF post.

Welcome to the Solo Skiff family :cheers:
