I fish smaller bodies of water but I do it from a canoe, so I'm off the water before most.
But, my two largest LMB (in this state) came on days that were close to my limits as far as wind goes.
So a bit of a blow gets me a little ramped up.

When it isn't safe for me to be out there I call it quits unless I think I can fish from the bank and be alright. I usually just pick smaller bodies of water if I know it's going to be windy and think about the areas I want to fish and how affected they are going to be by the wind so I have a plan before I get there so I'm not running around in it more than I have to. One of my best days for big fish last year was on a day the wind was blowing 30-40mph all day long. Boat control sucked but the fish didn't care. I fished a spinnerbait and trap all day and killed them.

it was 77 degrees last thurs, 25-30 mph winds. had to stand on the bank with my feet spread apart so i wouldnt blow over. stood in one spot for a whole hour catching bass after bass casting to the same spot every time. it was the back of a pocket and was also windblown. best day of the year so far. first 6 casts i had 4 fish.
i'd imagine a spinnerbait would do fine but i like lipless cranks cause they cast well in high winds. the wind is your friend.

im a firm believer that bass bite when they're hungry. raining, wind, or even blue bird skies, if you throw what they want you'll hook up. some of my best catches were on days that werent pretty! so if you can go...THEN GO! :)

J - Waves like those always reminds me of the words to a song: "With a load of iron ore 26 thousand tons more, than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty......"

My answer to the original question is YES!

As well as some real tragedy. A few years ago one of the local news stations replayed the radio calls between the Coast Guard and the Arthur Anderson which was the ship ahead of the Fitzgerald as they were trying to seek shelter behind Whitefish Point. Unbelievable that they turned to in that storm to go back looking for them when they went off radar. I've been in some white-knuckle trips on Lake Michigan in waves a mere fraction of what they faced. Makes me question my sanity every time I pass the end of the breakwalls.

I know that exact feeling. Get it sometimes when leaving the Buffalo Harbor on Erie, LOL.

People who ignore "That exact Feeling" often times contribute to natural selection as well as providing job security for me for about 3 decades.

Oh jeez, whatever - I can handle myself and the boat. You have to know your limits. Some make boating out to be something way more dangerous than it is - take it at least as serious driving a car. "That feeling" mostly just means a sore back. Not that I didn't feel safe. Believe me, I grew up on Lake Ontario. When you see white caps forming off shore, you have about an hour to react on Ontario. Erie, you can cut that time in half. Oneida is similar, though the waves come at you faster, so it's even more dangerous - easier to spear a wave. Anyway, I swamped a boat once, and that was enough. Funny that was a 22' Four Winns bowrider which should have been able to handle much worse - just bad driving. They don't work like a deep-v or a bass boat. That was a long slow ride back. luckily got her back without needing a tow.
