Hey Dale the other day i fished when the wind was blowing 20 to 25 knots. I just found a little tiny sections of water in lake that wind couldnt reach and cast there. I had my personal best day doing that. If get chance try hope it helps.
Use wet flies. go for the calmest water.
well i fish at a state park and there is allot of growth on the shore lines and it's mostly open and it isn't quiet at all when it's windy... i guese ill have to start asking people all over i see when i remember so i can find more places to fish.
In my limited experience anyway, I've found that the gills tend to bite a slower and lower in the water when the water's choppy. I've had some luck deadsticking a bait or lure right on the bottom rather than doing anything fancy with it.
thanks for the advice
anyone ellse?
In wind and waves use a thill bodied waggler float. Weight it so not much more than the red tip is sticking up. As the waves come and go it's like now you see it, now you dont't. Pay attention to this rhythm. Also put your rod tip under water and tighten your line up some. This method keeps your line under the waves and the floats body is also under the waves and your bait stays about where you want it.
I would be trying to rig up a slip float, with a tiny jig. That way the wind can drift your offering through brushpiles, etc. It works like a dream.
you mean throw the line away from the wind?
Fish along the back of boats in the marina, also by the rail under the boat slip that ties the posts together from slip to slip. No marina, docks and bridge pilings.
Anywhere you can find shelter from the wind will be better, as long as thats where the fish are. The upwind side of the lake/pond is usually best, assuming there are trees to help block the wind. Casting downwind is naturally a lot easier, so that is a plus if it will still get your bait to the fish. No matter what the conditions are, the name of the game is to put your bait in front of a hungry fish. If you do, you'll probably catch him, and if you don't, you definitely won't. You can research and read and study all you want to, and learn where everybody thinks your bait ought to be, but in the end it is the fish's opinion that really matters.
as soon as i get my resivour licence i can probably try it
