Default tropical storm effects

How will Jose (tropical storm) with wind and rain coming up the coast effect fishing assuming it is safe to venture out?

It will ruin all open beach fishing. However, there are many protected, back bay, locations that will not even be influenced by what is happening on the outside. Myself, were it not for the idea that I would have to drive 30 miles to some back bay -- and I am intimate with a shootload -- I would go fishing if I wanted to.

If I were money fishing, I would haul ash for tonight because the price is going to go sky high because striper on the floor of the market, due to shortage, is about to go into orbit. We learned through experience bad weather stopped fishing but it did not stop consumption. People have to eat, dah. Back, when I didn't have a pot to piss in, 50 cent stripers became $3 per pound when the sheet hit the fan weatherwise. Ask Ray Jobin.

But today, I just watch the Dow-Jones Industrial Average and NASDAX and make money without even getting out of bed. (What a country!)

The water is huge and nobody is able to fish nor are they going to for weeks because the storms are stacking.
