Only had about an hour and a half late this evening but went ahead and launched. Stayed midlake and the bite was a bit better than expected. Had about 5 or so. They all came on bushes along mainlake points in 2-3'. Flipped a creature bait in blue fleck. Bite was kinda light but then again the wind was howling so maybe I just did not feel them as good...... roflmao.
Had a couple of unders and 2 slots with the biggest around 4lbs. Water temps were lower than expected and were 59-61 mostly in the area I was in. Water color not bad at all with decent visibility.

Glad to help. I noticed more than a couple of people in smaller boats as I went over the bridges and then when on the water. With wind like this I know they are limited in where they can run. While I did not catch big numbers or size I at least wanted to share a bit in case someone could use the info. I figured i would give a little confidence to them and show that while the wind may may be blowing hard that they can still get bit in these areas.

It happens to us all. Hang in there and you will get them next trip. Fork humbles everyone at some point. NO ONE always catches them everytime out here. You are in good company. cheers

Absolutely..
The wind has been brutal, best bite for us has been Mann's minus -1 and Bandit Footloose crank baits in orange's/brown's, and gold blk back.. Those baits will come through some nasty stuff-fun too when you see the bite, they go right over the beds and get slammed... cheers

I don't always fish in the wind, but when I do, it's in a skeeter. But seriously, this wind is brutal.

sign me up! I've got very little boating experience overall, but best I can tell you just take it slow and try to run on the leeward(?) bank?

The bite the last couple of windy days has been late in the day for us. I have started later on the cold mornings to fish later in the day just so we could get that evening bite.

Had 6-7 fish after 5 pm yesterday. We cancelled today because of the wind so a much needed day off to do some things I need to get done around here.

May fly a kite this afternoon. LOL

It was surprising how fast the water temps dropped w/a couple cold nights.
