With wind forecast 30mph tomorrow would you go or cancell. We already cancelled one a few weeks ago because of heavy rain and high water. Hate to do it again but I'm concerned about trying to get a quality day of fishing in.
What would you do??

Cancel. Actually, I'd talk to the guide and see what he thinks. He could be on good fish out of the wind.

Do you think one could actually "get out of the wind" on a 25-30 mph wind day?

Tuff call, fish are moving shallow or already there. He maybe on some good fish and can get outta the wind.
Problem is rescheduling, most are booked day after day right now. The wind is really only bad (for me) when running the lake.
Good luck.. fish

Of course. I saw a bunch of folks getting out of the wind in Big Mustang, Sunday.

Don't cancel ever with a guide. Simply ask to reschedule at a later or next avalable date. Most guides take deposits to cover things like this. Rough weather to one person may not be to the next. If you paid a deposit the guide should reschedule you sir.

This..go back and look at the records for big fish. The vast majority of big fish caught in the spring come from this week on the calendar. Talk to the guide. I'm betting he can get out of the wind and find some big girls.

Most guides will work with you I believe. They will know what is rough for them concerning weather. I usually contact the client if I see weather coming in on that day or wind problems to see what they want to do. There is nothing wrong with some chop on the water especially if you are dealing with a spooky female. There is nothing wrong with calling the the guide as well and stating your concerns. The most important factor is we get you on the water and that you have the best experience. The Lake Fork guides will take of you, they always do! I hope you catch a big one! Let us see your pics when you do.

I'd let the guide make that call. If he truly thought it would be an issue and wouldn't provide a top notch experience he would reschedule it.

The Wind Alert APP shows wind gusting to 40 with rain Wednesday morning with wind up to 25. The 25 with gust to 40 is going to be a rough day for any guide.
