    Looks like it's going to be a bit nasty tomorrow with a stiff east wind. I suppose Fluke is out. Anyone think the East could spur a bass bite?

    Headed out a little late today**** with the hard east wind and the outgoing tide. Set up around 8:30**** sitting side too**** the swells and a little bouncy. Not much action until the tide slowed to a crawl...few shorts and a couple of keepers. At slack we had a little blitz with all rods...
  3. View From The Beach
    by Rich Troxler In my years of surf fishing, I have come across many, of what I consider to be misconceptions, regarding 2 related conditions. The first is how does wind affect fishing, and the second is about white water, a term that gets used a lot in connection with wind and surf fishing...

    Do any of you look at the wind forecast before heading out? Do you then look at how where you plan on fishing is facing in conjunction with the wind? Now I am talking about shore / surf fishermen mainly here as I am sure that boaters do. If so, what resources do you use?

    I received an email form a SR from Barrington High School today wanting to send me some questions on my thoughts of the proposed offshore wind farms. He is trying to gather thoughts on what will it do to marine life? Effects on the ocean environment? What will happen to the fishing grounds? Well...

    I switched line. I used Spiderwire Stealth and Fireline( on my Penns). I don't remember having any of those annoying wind knots with these lines mentioned above. In the past I've used other braids and seemed to have be undoing these knots quite frequently. Maybe because I'm finally getting...

    Sure wish this wind would either lay down or change directions. Kinda hard to hide from it when it's SW. Not that it will stop me........... :)

    this might seem like a stupid question, but when wind direction is given is it the direction the wind is going or the direction the wind is comeing from? i.e. north east- blowing from the northeast. or to the northeast. thanks khary

  16. Kayaking Stripers
    Paddled out to Faun Bar Sunday, T&W fishing. Winds kicked up rough seas for kayak and nothing was hitting. Retreated back off of the rip to Point Shirly; all small ones, Snake Island produced one keepa. Paddled like hell to offset the wind, what a workout. It was worth it for a few fish!

Would it turn a honey hole into a sand shark pit. what the heck , sand sharks by the dozen. Eating 3/4 pogies running droping jerk jerk,jerk like a pogie grinder. Does...

    Wyoming outdoors: Tips aid fly casting in wind Bob Krumm WYOMING OUTDOORS Perhaps one of the greatest challenges to a fly fisher is casting on a windy day. Many anglers wail, "I can't cast into the wind" and quit fishing in despair. If a fly fisher lives close by, quitting is a viable option on...
