Wind!!!

16 posts in this topic

Man is it frustrating when you spend the whole weekend on Mille Lacs and can't get the boat out because it looks like the Bering Sea. Then come Monday morning, I'm sitting here at work looking out the window at a flag that's hanging still...absolutely no wind.

I know this weekend SUCKED as far as the wind is concerned. I could only imagine what Mille Lacs was like.

Hiya -

Yeah, the wind was dreadful. Always fun taking waves over the bow as you try to hold on a spot...

Yesterday morning one of my kids asked me when the wind was going to die down. Since we planned on leaving the cabin around 7 PM I said "right around 6:00."

I was right on...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

I dont even want to remember the run we took on minnetonka yesterday. Sitting on the front deck in big waves=a sore butt.

Yup - that's why I stayed in Grays bay. I went to Wayzata for a bit, but headed back shortly. I went to the sippi on Sunday (thinking safe from wind) and saw what looked to be like a boulder field - nope, it was white caps!

On behalf of myself and many others I would like to congratulate those of you who made it out on the water this weekend. I did not even try. Even if I could have gotten on the water holding position in my boat would have been imposible. "feeling" what you were doing would have also been an issue.

The wind was very annoying this weekend but hopefully all will calm down soon and we can start catching some fish!

I guess I'm one of the few that enjoyed the wind. I had the whole southern end of the lake to myself yesterday. Sure I had waves coming over the bow, and holding my position was a pain. But I caught fish and thats all that matters!

haha Lol I was going to say the same thing the walleye guys were loving the wind I know that I was out fishing walleyes and bass and if you could hold your boat in there we were pounding the fish as the waves were coming over you really didnt need a net jsut wait for a wave to come over and the fish along with it.

Fished a tournament with USA Bassin on Big Marine yesterday. Worst wind I have ever fished a tournament in for sure. It was crazy. I dont think I ever had my t-moter under 60% ever..

I cant ever remember seeing a weekend in the middle of july where the wind said 32mph with gusts to 45mph.

INSANITY!

I want my money back!

Fished out on Minnewaska (big open lake) on saturday for a tournament. By far the most wind I've ever fished in, but I sure learned a lot that day about fishing in the wind and not getting frustrated by it. If you have the power in your trolling motor to hold, and there is fish in the area, it can be worth it to gut it out and stay in the wind, even when you feel like your going to fall out of the boat! smile

Wind is my main enemy... since my two and ONLY two hobbies are bass fishing and r/c helicopters. Arggg.... I need to pick up sailing.

Fishing is meant to be enjoyed not endured. When the wind blows like that it's no fun and to much work for me.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
