those Nina/Nino things confuse the eff out of me.   i just need the weatherman to tell me the basics.  grab a jacket fool!  wear shorts, dummy.


with respect to weather.  if i had a bassboat, wind rain wouldnt keep me home, i dont think.  what is a bassboats limit to wind?  15mph seems okay, no?  can spot lock go beyond that?


i have a 10mph wind limit on my kayak.  it just sucks holding position, i am no where near swimming at 10, but blowing past spots to quickly to work a plastic bait sucks.  


Was out this past Saturday in the kayak, 15-20mph sustained winds and close to 30mph gusts.  Pedal kayak and a power pole helps with the position holding, but I even mentioned to my fishin' buddy that day that it was impossible to use plastics.  Fish were plenty aggressive hitting jerkbaits though, so it was alright.


One of the best things I did for my fishing was to stop being such a fair weather fisherman and start braving some rougher conditions, wind and rain.  Obviously I'll get off the water if thunderstorms are rolling in, but some of the best fishing I had last year was right before the storms hit.

Fought the same winds all spring down here ?


Same here. Seems like the wind was blowing 20+ MPH for a couple of months or more. Fishing in the marshes below Morgan City, LA was near impossible. There is nothing to break the wind down there.
