Hey what do you consider max wind speed for going out? Had a very difficult time getting back to the dock a few weeks ago on Lake Grapevine - lots of water over the bow. Boat is 20ft skeeter.

fishing in anything over 25 is not enjoyable

whether its dangerous or not depends on the lake and direction

boats are supposed to get wet

Anytime you're getting water over your bowels you got big problems.

When it's this hot and the winds are 15-25 I have other things I can do for fun. Now if they had a boat ramp inside Hell's Gate at PK I'd go there.


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

We've been out on rayburn in 30+ but we had place to get out of it and a safe route to get there without getting beat up. The wind doesn't bother me unless I'm fishing off shore

It really depends on the lake. For a big lake like Travis or Buchanan, 15-20+ mph wind is going to be brutal no matter what. 15 is doable but anything 20+ and I'm most likely staying home.

For smaller lakes(Bastrop, Decker, etc) my boat will handle 20+ winds pretty easily

20-25 for me with a 17' boat. Any more than that I start to get wet and not enjoying the ride

I get annoyed anything over 15, but I draw the line at 20. I live in west texas, not many places to hide.

3-4 minimum. 20-25 maximum.

I like 10-12 the most. Enough to mask the boat noises a little...but not enough to arc my line too bad.
