Wind Conditions

4 posts in this topic

We are heading up tomorrow around 6 am and fishing through the day, and they are saying winds at 10-20 mph. Any thoughts on what point you don't want to be out there? Thanks for any input.

It obviously all depends on what size of boat you have & how much you like to fish the surf? I had good fishing in the surf yesterday in a 20' boat, but if its an issue drive farther and fish the "lee" side of the lake. That's the best advice I'd follow.

Thanks for the insight. The main reason I am leery at all is the wife and I were out on my first trip ever to Mille Lacs about 6 years ago and the wind picked up something fierce while we were out and when we got back to the access, it was underwater basically. We had put in at an access on the east side just north of Mac's Twin Bay I believe, and the wind was howling out of the west and basically the whitecaps were rolling over the dock at the access. It was crazy. Just want to avoid that again. Thanks again.

Sounds like a typical day on ML if you ask me.
