Fighting The Wind

Recommended Posts

Well after yesterday being 90 and sunny the weather went to crap today barely making it to 50 with wind gusting to 50mph. It's still my day off so we were going fish either way. My buddy (kanasbassfisher08) met me and we headed to a small city lake that isn't very wide and runs east to west to try to avoid the north wind as much as possible. I honesly wasn't hoping for much, maybe a few small ones and a day out of the house. We started by squeezing through into a small pond connected to the lake with a little clearer and warmer water. Chris started fast with a nice fish right at 4lbs on a spinnerbait. Picture did it no justice.

We caught a couple more small bass and a crappie before Chris stuck another good fish on a jig, this one was 4lbs 1oz

He was feeling pretty good about having a couple solid fish while all I had was a couple dinks. We left the pond for the main lake. Fished across the dam with no luck. I saw a swirl at the edge of a dead weed line. Tossed a spinnerbait to the spot twice and stuck this nice one. It went 5lbs 7oz.

I felt a little better to have a good one in the boat. A few casts later I stuck another one on a spinnerbait that was probably between 3 1/2 or 4lbs.

Fished along catching a small one once in awhile before we got to a small submerged island. I threw and Excaliber One Knocker across the edge of it and caught a nice wiper. Next casts I caught another bigger one.

The wind was terrible so we packed up and went to an even smaller lake down the street. We caught a few small ones on spinnerbaits before I picked up my Excaliber One Knocker and caught a prespawn female that looked like she was about to pop! Wind was blowing to hard to weigh her but she was 5+ for sure.

I lost one more good one on a jig before we called it a day. Our biggest 5 would have been in the low to mid 20's. Awesome day for around here but really amazing considering the conditions!

awesome day! I tend to like a little wind, but not as strong as what ya'll were dealing with! Flat calm is only good first thing in the morning and right before dark! Other than that, just enough to ripple the top of the water is what I prefer!

Thanks guys! I'm hoping after the warm days and with it looking like it should be warmer on my days off this week I might have a chance to wear them out again!

Hate fishing in the wind. Unless I catch fish like that.
