I was very close to going out last night after the so called weather. I'm confident we would have caught fish.

I'm not a total believer that weather can totally kill a bite. I just changes things. It may put fish in a negative mood, but often times you can still entice a few to bite with the appropriate presentation and such.

I'd fish after a storm anyday. Somedays we do average/decent and sometimes it stinks.

I think if we let the weather dictate our fishing schedule we'd almost never get out. If I have plans to fish, that's what I do (unless its unsafe)

I tend to think that different species are affected in various ways. From experience trout seem to be the most affected, especially with rain and rising/off colored water and just weather in general. It seems that bass/panfish and such you can catch by changing tactics or presentation mush like Tyler suggested. Trout I have not figured out a way to get them to cooperate if weather is an issue. Maybe someone can enlighten me.
