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.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
