WMFL August 13th, and 14th event CANCELED!!


Recommended Posts

Wind speeds as I type this are 21 Kts at Holland pear, 25 kts mid lake, and a big storm moving across the lake from the North. The massage from Captain Don I received a bit ago was "its blowing like a bitch here". At this point all we can do is hope for better on Sunday. Sorry all but 4' waves are just not safe for our small boat fisherman.

What is NOAA thinking when they post 20-25 kts winds and 1-2' waves? When ever has a 20 kts wind only produced a 2' wave?

My son Jacob is on the lake now, and he says it's 3-5 with the occasional 6' thrown in. with wind speeds of 15 kts.

Anyone know if they canceled day 1 for the Saugatuck tournament too?

Talked to Jimmy a little while ago they held it up for one hour and then started the tournament. He said there was Lightning everywhere while they went out. 6-8s where they were fishing and watched a watersout try and form. He also said there were boats out there way to small to in that kind of water. I dont know what the heck they were thinking not calling it. Is tournament control trying to get someone killed. they had the boat hit by lightening that was less than a mile from us a couple years ago in ludington and alsmost kill that guy. I just dont get it. Maybe when they get someone killed they will make better decisions. Glad the WMFL leaders has more common sense. Glad to see that ken and don can look at the weather and realize it just isn't worth it some times. No fish is worth someones life.
