    Hey all my Fellow Fishermen... Which internet Weather site has been the most accurate for you to use prior to going fishing? I have used a couple of sites but I was wondering if there may be something better.

    I normally use wunderground.com or :smile2: weatherbug.com Please share the ones you use, it doesn't have to be an internet site, it can be a TV Channel too..

    Also which wind direction do you prefer to fish for catfish.. I have alway heard if the wind is blowing out of the WEST fish bite the BEST, and if the wind is blowing out of the EAST fish bite the LEAST.. may be an urban legend, but I was just curious.

    Thanks Zivetor

    I prefer weather underground. It's seems to be a more accurate forecast than local stations or The Weather Channel! My 2 cents worth.

    I use the NOAA weather site. It pretty much hits the forcast right on the head.

    AccuWeather had a forcast up today for my area calling for 6"-8" of snow accumulation. :roll_eyes:

    I have a feeling something somewhere got messed up in the computer.

    To answer your question, I look at weather.com (great for technical data and radar), accuweather.com (extended forcasts), and the local stations (more accurate for immediate weather).

    Glad to see some of the other ones available.

    I have to go with NOAA regional weather site. plus the NOAA weather band on the CB lets me stay on top of anything in my area. Thats pretty much why there is one in the boat.

    Lenny, I use a number of links, depending on what area I'm fishing, but here are a few for the lakes, which I suspect is what you're interested in:
    These links pertain to the Santee Cooper Lakes, lower end:

    Weather forecast for Cross, SC: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/forecast/Ma...pe=3&site=chs&CiTemplate=1&map.x=246&map.y=30

    Wind forecast for Lake Moultrie (take with a big grain of salt): http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/raw/sx/sxus42.kchs.rec.chs.txt

    Rediversion Canal flows @ St. Stephen, SC (lets me know if there is extra current coming through the lakes, and water temps during the winter:
    http://waterdata.usgs.gov/sc/nwis/u...on&format=gif_stats&period=7&site_no=02171645

    Water flow in Tailrace Canal @ Moncks Corner (another gauge of current flow): http://waterdata.usgs.gov/sc/nwis/uv/?site_no=02172002&PARAmeter_cd=00060,00062,00065,72020

    Wind from the West the fish bite the best! Wind from the East, the fish bite the least! Wind from the South, the hooks in their mouth! The question should be, What happen when the winds from the North? My dad always said, if you fish when the wind is from the North, You're a damn fool! LOL

    I use NOAA. On a rainy day the one hour radar loop is great to get an idea of which which way the rain is moving. If you enter the main site through weather.gov and click on "rivers" you can get a forcast of what the rivers in your area are predicted to do with regards to flow and height.

    My favor is The Weather Channel, I have The Weather Channel Desktop on my computer. It tell ya the current degrees and the next 10 days forcast.
