Today I was fishing the windyest conditions ever,I shore fished the whole lake front to back left to right into the wind and with the wind every cove & all the points.I used panthermartins,castmasters,homemade penny spinners,powerbait in a few favorite colors & gulpworms.nothin! and i fish this lake more than any one else! no joke.and have fished it almost my whole life.I always catch trout. but I learned somthing today.the spot I normaly fish wich cought me over 800 trout last year & 200 this year,was producing for some weekender fisherman using plain old night crawlers blown up to float around 2 ft.off the bottom,close to shore and in very shallow water no more than 5 ft.deep & 25-30 ft.out.that was the only thing working for anyone.all trout I winessed being caught when windy were under these conditions now im not the kinda guy to fish like that.I believe thats just feeding the fish somthing they would be used to eating, anyone can catch a fish on worms, not that it aint fun, but i believe in skill not guaranteed fish.plus you catch carp,catfish,bass,bluegill,red ear pirch & every other species known to man,with worms. what im trying to say about windy conditions is,its just a different type of weather that make the fish act a certian way,the fish are still their and they still have to eat,you just need to find out what they want,and be very open minded cus when u witness a kid catch a trout on a piece of bubblegum thats when it hits you, that anything is possible!!!
