Help! It's Windy!

5 posts in this topic

I am supposed to take 2 lovely ladies (from out of state) fishing today - Tuesday. They have 1 day licenses.

Are there any places I could take them that wouldn't be so affected by the wind? Maybe sheltered by trees or down in a hole?

Any help would be appreciated - They were looking forward to this and so was I.

Thanks

Davesfriend,

Thanks for responding. It turned out to be 3 women, 4 with my wife. One had never even cast a line before. I managed to scrape up enough tackle to make 4 outfits.

Fishing was no good. Started off on the river. Couldn't cast out far enough to get a decent drift. So we left and went to a lake. I think the waves at the lake kept the water churned up. Not a bite all day.

They said they had a good time anyway but, I wish they would have caught something.

Yeah Jim, we were fishing from shore (on a dock at the lake). Just picked the wrong day - they had 1-day licenses.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
