    i went fishing this past saturday as soon as it stopped raining i was a little in doubt about it but as soon as the rain broke headed down to the fishing hole to my suprise it was pretty packed when the crowd starting thinning they where just myself and two other guys one soon packed up and after that i probably had one of my best days ever as i pulled in 10 cats 2 got away and 2 white bass the other guy pulled in 6 or 7 and says this was probably one of his better days all this was in a matter of 2hrs it was quite amazing at least for me i have fished in the rain before but try not to as i dont want my equipment getting rusty but i had plent of memorable exp myself in the rain...

    I like fishing in the rain. I move to the swallow areas and drift and pick up lots of eaters(1-3 lbs.). I use cut bait, shad, chubs and bluegills on a circle hook.

    Fishing in the rain is great. Seem like they bite better in the rain.

    I keep rain gear in my boat at all times. In fact, I fished in a brief rain shower this morning. I get completely off of the water if there is lightning and thunder.

    Rain fishing is great. I had one of my better couple of days last week. It was rainy to beat heck, I spent more time baiting hooks than sitting down. My only gripe is that the water raised about 2 feet in 2 hours kept having to move my poles up the bank every 5 minutes.

    Shore fishing is great in the rain, channels move into shallow water to feed on worms and anything else that a good hard rain might wash in. I remember last year while trout fishing in a heavy rainstorm, we started picking up channels on powerbait, so after limiting on trout, we walked back up to the bait store bought some mackeral, and ended up catching cats for the rest of the day.

    Ya if a person is willing to get a little wet, fishing can be great. Can't wait til it rains here again
