Got out and fished the rollers with my 4 yr old fishing partner. Bait was easy in 32 ft. We got a late start but the clouds and wind sure had the fish fired up again. We looked for fish in protected water and couldn’t find them. Decided to go all in and head out into the main lake where the 20-25 mph north wind had the lake acting real nasty. We started our first drift at 12:30 fishing the humps. (2) 78” drift socks and my big 10ft drift sock had us slowed down to .5 mph. We landed 22 dinks our first drift. Ran out of good bait so had to make another bait run at 2pm. Got back to our area at 2:30 and the fish were long gone. Moved to the closest point with wind blowing across it and the fish were loaded up on the bottom of the ledge. We hammered em for another 2 hours and caught 25 more. We ended the day at 4:30 with 47 dinks up to 6 lbs. Saw Ed N Eddy out there and gave them a pile of fish to clean. Man it’s tough fishing that high wind and rollers but the fishing can be incredible! texas

I know the feeling of fishing Lewisville in high winds.

Thanks fellas! The boat is a battleship Fredo and was built for rollers!

Easterlin Sea Anchors out of South Carolina is where the 10’ sock came from Ed...They are high quality and ain’t cheap but really helpful in 20+ mph winds. I got 8 different socks in varying sizes in the boat and use them all in different configurations for different conditions.

How are you fishing the wind blown points? Anchored and casting towards the bank or along the edges of the points, or drifting across them? Really enjoy your posts!!

Thanks Jonathan! First I mark em with my bird. Then I determine how the fish are relating to structure. Are they on top, Bottom of the ledge? Which side of point and how Shallow or deep? Once I’ve scanned the point good I pin the areas I see fish. I power drift em several different ways depending on the wind. I fish out the back so I can move the boat around with the trolling motor and hit specific features and fish I’ve pinned. If the wind is 10mph or less I start up shallow and put my nose into the wind and and i use i-pilot link and trolling motor to pull me into the wind across my pins and out onto the point and into the deeper water. When I start getting bit I slow way down with I-pilot cruise control and almost sit on top of them in the sweet spot pulling .1-.2 mph. If the wind is over 10mph I start out in deep water and line up with my targets and let the wind blow me. I use my I-pilot link to move me around and hit my targets. There is usually a sweet spot on structure that you want to hit and try and stay in. Boat control is paramount and it’s very easy to miss your lines when fishing points. Nothing more frustrating then getting all your lines deployed and realize you missed your drift line and have to reel everything up. I pilot link stops that from happening has changed the way I fish.
