Guys we are all on the wrong side of something.  I missed all of June and most of July last year recovering from a stroke.  Now I have missed 3 weeks of it this year with a trailer axle gone bad.  I got the boat back last night and I have to make up for lost time.  So color me on the water as often as I can get there wind or no wind.  Lightning and tornadoes will keep me off for a while.

Wow the wind and weather has beat me down . I think I'm getting old fighting the trolling motor . I get back and can hardly move for a day I'm so sore. been catching fish but would enjoy it more if I did not feel so worn down from the wind and cold.. 49 degrees in MAY ? .  Has anyone one else run into this in there state?

That happened to me at Lake Powell last week. We had two days of great weather, but when we got to the ramp Thursday morning and saw all the white caps on Wahweap Bay we decided we did not wish to fight it - been there and done that many times. While I think a little wind can be beneficial, especially on a bright, sunny day, too much wind makes fishing miserable. having to be on the trolling motor constantly is tiring, especially when you're on the wrong side of 60. Since I'm primarily a finesse fisherman, a lot of wind is not conducive to my fishing style. When this happens I will throw cranks, spinnerbaits and jerk baits, but I just don't have as much confidence in these as the soft plastics.  :)

I'm with you Ed. Trying to fish finesse with the wind putting a bow in your line is like playing golf in a crosswind. At my age(73) I'll just stay home and wait for a calm day :)

It can be very effective.  I did it for several years but got away from it with a new fishing partner who likes to fish shallow.

Ed, next time you see Ron, tell him that Wild Bill has passed from a heart attack while fishing on his boat, Wild Bill was the guy who did a lot of the Snag Proof frog colors, the Wild Bull color is his name sake.

I'll try to remember. Heading back to Missouri in the morning as my dad is ill and in the hospital. Probably won't be on the site for a while. I'll try to remember to tell Ron about Wild Bill if I see him. Likely won't be back at the lake until at least fall.  :'(

But it's hard   to do when boat is always moveing !.bro-in-law wont sit still long enough in one spot 1 min. at the most  lol but will try again tues. I see  fish1-2 feet off bottom I have set-up about 18  in.  up from sinker. fishing 20-30 ft of water sometimes.other times a little  less.

Drop shotting is slow finesse type fishing. Keep at it. It works, often when nothing else will.  ;)
