Wind and weather - does it affect your decisions?

Todays conditions:


overcast- generally good.

post frontal- generally tough 

breezy- generally good

wind from the north north east- weird and not normal

Stable barometer- depends who you talk to

recently falling water temp for fall- should turn fish on

 

who knows what I’m going to see, but my wife is away all day so I’m going fishing for probably the last time this year. Archery season is kicked off in earnest so the boat is being put away.

Well as follow up, the fish weren’t chasing moving things. They were definitely on the bottom in 4-15’ of water. They weren’t roaming either. You needed some cover, ideally grass, with deeper water nearby. That said, if you worked for it and put it in front of them they would eat. Nothing picture worthy but I scratched out 6 in a couple hours. All on the rage bug.

The last couple of times I’ve been out it’s been pretty tough. I’m in Ohio and I feel like the LMB are in a bit of a fall transition funk. It’s been unseasonably warm here and I believe that what’s needed to improve the fishing is a cool down. Water temps on Saturday were 66-71 degrees. If anything, they have gone up a bit since then. High of 84 today, 81 tomorrow, 71 Friday, 56 on Saturday, 54 on Sunday. Although I believe a cool down is what’s needed to improve the fishing, I’m guessing the bass will be shut down for a few days after a change that drastic. Am on the right track? Even more so than the other seasons, I can’t seem to figure out what to expect during the fall transition. I’m thinking what’s needed is for the temps to cool off a bit, but also the bass are going to need some time to adjust?

I dont care about wind direction its speed that I keep an eye on . Fishing from a jon boat is frustrating with winds over 10 mph. From my deck boat , the sides are high so it gets blown around pretty bad too . I also dont go if temps are over 90 or too cold . This week the weather is going to be pleasant and I plan on going at least twice while I still can. 

This describes my criteria exactly.
