forecast last weekend (9/21/13) called for thunderstorms with high
winds, especially along the gulf coast. I still wanted to fish. The bad
forecast would not force me to hide under the covers. I woke up early and
headed for Lake Fayette. I would target some bass. I launched and hit my normal
places. My first few stops were a bust, with not so much as a bite. I continued
