Weather Reports

Having the most accurate weather report is not only important for fishing conditions but also for the safety of boating especially on the Great Lakes.  Lake Erie's weather is particularly known for changing quickly.  The most reliable forecasts I have found are on NOAA.  I use both their text and animated reports.  What is most important is number one the wind and the waves and secondly the threat of thunder and lightning storms.  Ideal waves are under 2 feet.  I will go out in 1-3 ft waves.  With a seasoned crew I may attempt 2-4 ft waves if the fish are really hitting.  I have found the animated forecast gives you predicted picture of the waves for each of the coming hours.  I have found this very helpful in determining whether to go or not go.  The text forecast is usually updated every 6 hours (3 am, 9 am, 3 pm and 9 pm).
