1st fishing trip starts TODAY- wind advisory

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

   Quite excited as I start my first fishing trip this afternoon.  The weather is going to be beautiful with 1 issue- a wind advisory.  I'm wondering how that will play into lure selection and how I may work these baits.  It's not a big lake at 72 acres, but I'm hoping all the trees that surround the lake help protect the coves from wind.  Any advice?

Good luck. Heavy jigs into the wind, otherwise cast with

the wind at your back if you can. Use it to your advantage

as best as you are able :) .

Fish the North side of the lake where the water is likely to be the warmest.  Jerkbaits are my recommendation.  Fished slow.

High winds means Carolina Rigs with big sinkers for me, or heavy spinnerbaits.

Changes very little for me. We had winds howling Thursday night, gust near 40. I caught all my fish on a 3/8oz jig.
