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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
