I had planned on going to Pensacola this weekend to fish, small offshore charter boat..The weather says seas should be calm, Lily is to be out of the way by Friday..Will thefishing be poor for a few days after the storm passes? Should I reschedule my trip for later? Thanks. Bud

My suggestion to you is #1 be sure the Gulf has sufficiently calmed down for a Friday trip in a small charter boat. If the weather looks good I would go. My experience has been that the fishing after a hurricane is very good especially the bottom fishing. Can't explain why but I assume the rough weather drives the fish in closer to shore. Good Luck ......

Although the last 'cane just produced high wind and seas, the water calmed quite a bit just after it passed.
2 days after it passed, we had one of the best days on the Gag grouper.
So, go for it--you'll probably slam 'em.
Good luck--Capt Chuck
