2012 Elite Series St. Johns River Showdown St. Johns River - Palatka, FL, Mar 15 - 18, 2012

Weather forecast

9:09 am EDT, Mar 18, 2012 | By Hank Weldon

Here's a photo from the launch today, from our emcee, Dave Mercer. It is a calm cool 60 degrees.  The weather forecast for today is a high of 84 degrees with winds from the east at 5 to 10 mph.  That is pretty much excatly the same conditions as yesterday. To me, that means the fishing in Lake George will get going in about an hour and a half.

 

You always wonder what is going through these angler's heads right now.  They know the fishing is going to get better as the sun gets up higher in the sky.  I'm betting these guys are having to tell themselves to stay calm, don't worry, the fishing is going to get better later in the day. That is one of the things that makes these anglers Elite.  Not only being able to catch fish, but also being able to control their nerves and thoughts, so that it doesnt affect their fishing.
