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.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
