I was so happy to get up and see how cold it was till I looked outside and saw no wind. I'm heading to the lake as soon as possible to go fishing. Anyone else excited to get out again without the wind? I know I am.

No wind is nice but not my preference. I'd rather have a wind but certainly this morning is a welcome change in terms of at least getting a break from it.

Good luck! Taking the day "off" today but will be back out Monday AM.

I am so sick of the 20mph + winds, it drives me nuts. I like a good 5 to 10 and thats about it.

I don't remember the last day the wind wasn't howling. It wouldn't be so bad if it was the same direction for a few days but it is switching constantly. Man this is a strange weather pattern this spring.....

The wind and cold didn't keep me from my limit Saturday. Fished from shore near the Winnie Dam. Caught 9 walleye - kept 4. Lost a dozen jigs to snags. Had fresh fish for dinner and a snack later. Does it get better than that smile

It is supposed to blow 20-30 for the rest of the week sick

It can settle down any time as far as I am concerned.

i fished in the hurricane force winds on saturday morning.

As did I. Boat control was nearly impossible even on a smaller lake. We ended up settling in a small bay where the winds were swirling, and while not calm, allowed boat control to be possible.

Forecast is for 40mph winds on Wednesday. frown

Time to sell the boat and fish from shore. Lots cheaper and weather is less of a factor.

Hoping that a weather change will bring about an increase in the number of leeches being trapped. We've had to fight to get enough to supply everyone. It was a slow trapping month so far - but should hopefully pick up as water temps rise.
