Fellows, this is some serious wind tomorrow. Please everyone use good judgement when out on the water tomorrow. Don't even consider crossing big open water. What might seem doable in the am with a sea on your stern will be almost impossible when you have to come back through it head on. You'll get you and your crew in dire straights in a skinny minute.
Another thing to consider (there are many others) is your water level. It will gradually blow the water out of the river, bays, and ditches!! You will strand your boat (and you) if you don't monitor this "wind tide" event guaranteed. And this wind is supposed to be blowing all day and evening.
Don't let exuberance get in the way of good judgement. If you have to think twice about whether or not you should make that run, err on the side of caution .... and live another day to hunt.
