Due to the risk of Tstorms my original plans to fish the am flood on the flats are all but dashed. Of course if the weatherman is wrong I'll be out there but if it's anything like tonight forget that! Lightning strikes on the water when a mile out on a flat falls under the category "exhilarating but never want to experience it again".

For all who are going tomorrow, watch out for sharks, lightning and hippie birdcounting biologists! }>

Tstorms expected at 9am and 3pm (http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/USMA0079?day=2&forecastOffset=0&vert=WeatherCity&pres=Chatham,+MA#day) for what forecasts are worth.

Juro... Todd Murphy ,Jimmy and I hightailed it out of the Crib by flats boat about 11:30 am when t-storm and lightning came very close to us from a storm coming over from The Vineyard... Made it back to Stage Harbor just in time.
