Wind

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping to get out with my wife tomorrow the 4th and noticed that the wind is supposed to be blowing about 12 mph. I know many of you spend a ton of time on the pond and should know what size waves are the result of a 10, 15 or 20 mph wind. What do you think? How big is the chop going to be?

Thanks!

Kevin

It all depends on what side of the lake you fish on. Waves can get pretty big when they travel 18+ miles. By the looks of it, winds will be coming from the northwest. ON the south east side, you'll probable have whitecaps but on the northwest side by garrison will be realtively calm and more fishable. Sometimes the wind just makes you choose where your going to fish.

Wind will be from the NORTH/NWEST up to 15mph. I guess it depends upon location, boat size, and the wife. Big chop, but not huge, at 15mph. I have a 17 foot boat. 10mph comfortable for my wife. 15mph gets her alittle uncomfortable after a few hours but if the fish are biting she'll hang in there. You might try the Malmo sand break on the north end or Sand Dune flat on the Northeast end or venture out on the north end mud flats. If the wife is pretty sturdy, go anywhere.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
