2012 Hurricane Season Predictions

As June 1, 2012 draws nearer, we will see the start of the 2012 Hurricane Season.  The 2012 hurricane season promises to be less active than normal, and close to half as active as last year, when 20 tropical cyclones, seven hurricanes and four major hurricanes were recorded, according to a forecast released today by the Colorado State University Tropical Meteorology Project. Forecasters Philip Klotzbach and William Gray predict the 2012 season, which begins June 1, will have 4 hurricanes, compared with an average of 6.5 hurricanes between 1981 and 2010, and 10 named storms, compared with an average of 12.

Fishing Report May 16, 2012

Surf Fishing Report:
Wind is SW at 8. Water temp is 57 degrees. We have muddy water.
A few bottom fish. I would try for Sea Mullet.
The water temp is dropping. If the SW winds stick around, it will drop a little more. It is a good Sea Mullet day because the water is murky. You can catch Sea Mullet with shrimp, bloodworms and simulated bait on a bottom rig. Sea Mullet have several names. They are also called Roundheads, Whiting and Kingfish. Depending on what state you live in.
