Gorgeous Wind Map

Gorgeous Wind Map

This may look like a piece of modern art, but it's actually an experimental wind map designed by some clever folks over at hint.fm. By using live wind data from the National Digital Forecast Database, the map renders wind speed and wind direction. The screenshot above was taken the morning of Tuesday, October 30, 2012, the day after Hurricane Sandy made landfall in the northeastern United States.

I wish they had included sea surface wind, but this still gives a pretty good indication for what the coastal winds look like, which can be very helpful for fishing.

The map is showing west winds for South Florida which should help lay down the rough seas from the past week. We just had our first cold front in South Florida and you know what that means? Sailfish time. I'd recommend heading out on one of our charters in Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, or Miami.

South Florida Cold Front Means Great Fishing

True: it's freaking cold for us Floridians now. True: the NW wind has the Gulfstream looking gnarly. But if you're reading this you're most likely interested in cleaning up and catching some fish!

Our past experience has shown us that this unusually cold weather leads to great fishing - especially if you get on a boat with one of our expert captains who know where the fish hide when it's cold.

If you're thinking about taking a fishing trip in Florida, layer up and give it a try!
