I haven't really gone out chasing schoolies yet this year, but I understand most of that action is uplake right now anyway. Which should help the situation with a SSW wind. I'll keep catfishing until they come down the lake some more, and we'll have a prevailing S or SE wind by then (hopefully).
A NW wind is the scourge of that lake. A 5mph NW wind will tear that lake up more than a 12-15 mph wind from just about any other direction. I guess it depends on where you fish, but where I like to fish a NW wind most often means I stay at home.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!
