Too windy?

3 posts in this topic

So I aquired this week off work (laid off) and what crappy weather. What do you all think is too windy? Is it worth sitting in 35 mph gusts or should I just watch the outdoor channel from the couch? Anybody got any high wind tips? Also, how do you think wind will effect my shot?

Well first of all you aren't gonna shoot one on the couch!!! The wind is actaully supposed to die down a bit towards evening.

Unless you've got a TV & couch in your deer stand, go out & hunt. If you're not going to do that, go back to work & save your vacation man.

Find a protected spot where there's food or a funnel, they'll be there. The deer will still move, but they'll actually be in more predictable places. I hunted in a poor spot this morning (for just an hour), I wanted to try it once before gun season just in case. I didn't see anything, but on my way to work saw a big deer down wind of a thick stand of pine trees about 8:00.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
