Wind

3 posts in this topic

I'm hoping to get out with my wife tomorrow the 4th and noticed that the wind is supposed to be blowing about 12 mph. I know many of you spend a ton of time on the pond and should know what size waves are the result of a 10, 15 or 20 mph wind. What do you think? How big is the chop going to be?

Thanks!

Kevin

It all depends on what side of the lake you fish on. Waves can get pretty big when they travel 18+ miles. By the looks of it, winds will be coming from the northwest. ON the south east side, you'll probable have whitecaps but on the northwest side by garrison will be realtively calm and more fishable. Sometimes the wind just makes you choose where your going to fish.

Wind will be from the NORTH/NWEST up to 15mph. I guess it depends upon location, boat size, and the wife. Big chop, but not huge, at 15mph. I have a 17 foot boat. 10mph comfortable for my wife. 15mph gets her alittle uncomfortable after a few hours but if the fish are biting she'll hang in there. You might try the Malmo sand break on the north end or Sand Dune flat on the Northeast end or venture out on the north end mud flats. If the wife is pretty sturdy, go anywhere.

      In the summer and fall the night bite is excellent on Cass for eyes.  I'm not much help come winter time though.  With the clearer water due to zebra mussels, I would bet the night bite would be good.

      When I discover it I will let you know. I have not figured it out yet.

      Depends on your layout. If the walls can be easily removed inside that is usually the better option. If too much stuff is in the way...then yep...do as Cliff suggests.

      Is there a special dance or ritual I can do in an attempt at pleasing said fish gods? Cuz my moves and dance skills just are not up to par this year! Lol.
