Rough Weather
<p>Since I had to vacate my fishing spot this afternoon due to a tornado barreling towards me, I figured I would start a thread of all the crazy weather that us roughfishermen have seen while out fishing. I'll start with today's twister:</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:960px; width:720px" /></p> <p>Not the best lighting, but look to the left of the handicap sign. I got out of the path of the storm before snapping any pics.</p> <p>Next, we have the twister I dodged last weekend.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:960px; width:720px" /></p> <p>Yikes. Two tornadoes in under a week isn't very good.</p> <p>Now we go to my Florida trip earlier this summer where our guide (oops I fished with a guide) skillfully guided us around a dangerous storm.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:720px; width:960px" />I really have a knack for almost getting caught by storms.</p> <p>This was the last night of the contest and arguably the reason why I didn't hit 20 species.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:720px; width:960px" /></p> <p>A batch of storms dropped about 10" rain on me in under 3 hours. There was about 3 feet of water in my street. I was not able to leave my house that night. Could've hit 20 but we'll never know.</p> <p>The other ones really don't have any stories other than me putting myself in these sitations because I love thunderstorms.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" style="height:420px; width:315px" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="" style="height:420px; width:560px" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="" style="height:420px; width:560px" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Feel free to share what storms you guys have been in!</p>

Dude!  Holy smokes, those are

Dude!  Holy smokes, those are some sweet pics of storms.  I don't have any stories that are nearly as good.  One time, my buddy and I drove from Milwaukee to the Rock River.  The meteorologists said a 30% chance of storms.  Of course, we hit torrential rain, lightning, and hail on our way west. When we got to our spot, under a bridge, we decided to fish, since heading back east would only mean going back through the same storms.  We saw lightning all night long, but caught carp, catfish, and a few other species.  I've fished under a bridge when it snowed, rained, hailed, etc., but never saw any tornadoes!
