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 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.

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.

    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
    • Buddies from Michigan, MN, ND and WY got here Sunday, started hunting yesterday. Yesterday coulda gone better and coulda gone worse. We had 2 spots in a marsh that we were debating on setting up. Chose spot B. Had we chose spot A, we woulda been absolutely covered up in birds. There was about 1500 pins, teal and a few wigeon sitting there when we came by. at least we shot a couple nice bwt. Total take was 17. One drake bwt was already in the freezer when the pic was taken.    Day 2 was a diver hunt. Mainly had redheads come in, with one nice flock of scaup that we dropped 7 drakes out of. Had 3 flocks of buffies buzz the edge of the longlines but not commit to
