WIND
« on: May 02, 2009, 08:44:10 PM »

is it me or does it seem there are a lot more windy days this spring.  I was out today and there were 2 foot waves with whitecaps all over my lake.   not sure i have fished a calm day yet this year.  love them calm days on a clear water lake with smallies.

It got a little bumpy on LSC today.....I got a little wet when I was playing with my GPS instead of paying attention to my driving.....

NOAA said 1 footers, but I thought they were more around 2+

I live in Almont and we are still digging out from the wind shears from last saturday....I have never seen as much destruction from the wind minus a tornado or hurricane...

Seems to me there is just as much wind this year at this time as there was last year at this time.

I don't mind it because come June, we'll all be baking out in that sun, and wishing we had some wind and rain.

wind really helped the fishing today... was blowing across a weed flat at 8mph going with it, but kept the fish active all day, so i'm not minding it so much. 8)

I've found I can make the wind stop by wanting it... and make it blow by not wanting it... Over and over today. But yes, I was fishing. And it wasn't Lake St. Clair... or Saginaw Bay. :o

So it's okay. ;D

I've thought... since the wind so often does the opposite of what I want it to do right at that moment... I should be able to use reverse psychology on it?? So far, no such luck ;D

maybe when they build all the Wind Farms the wind will die.  East wind with white caps as i type this.  at least the water is warming up a bit so the breeze is not so cool.

You know... I could kill two birds with one stone that way. I should push for a LOT more wind farms!!!

Feel like I'm helping the Earth with cleaner power and once enough of them are built... the wind goes away. ...of course ;D

Yeah but DK, the wind can be good for us fisherman at times.  We have all seen where the wind died down to nothing and the bite shut off.  I always like a little breeze......you know like anything less than 10mph.  I remember a club tourney on Erie a couple of years ago where the wind was blowing lightly early and by 1100 hours it was blowing up the lake to 4 and 5 footers.  During this time the bite improved 10 fold and the bigger fish were biting better the harder it blew.  That was a day I wished I had a little bigger boat.  I ended up heading back to the River at about 1130 with the weigh in at 1500.  I tried to upgrade my catch in the river but was only able to cull one fish there.  I ended up with over 20 pounds and 1st place.  Out in the lake I had a limit early and upgraded my whole catch twice as the wind blew harder.  Wish I could have handled staying out on the big lake longer but I am safety minded before anything else.  My partner that day ended up in 2nd place about 2.5lbs shy of my weight or something like that.  I also had big fish of the tournament which was over 6lbs.  I remember being sore for quite a few days after that.  I ain't no spring chicken anymore.......just chicken!!!!    :o

fished 4 days last week.  Had whitecaps every day.  I think it must be Global Winding of something.  there were 3 footers on Cass yesterday.  Even gave Cheetam a shower when we hit a wave.
