Will the rain and wind ever stop

Reply
To day we dodged rain and fought high wins for a great day of Fishing in Lafitte. It was not easy as fighting winds is no fun and you better see Ben for a good trolling motor. Can't remember last time I fished without strong winds and white caps/ Remember Don the outdoor man said no big trout in Lafitte.

Plastic and this time of year top water is great but seems like the wind will never stop. You need to fish the windy banks and be on the water at day light. Most of our fish are in the box before most fisherman are getting out of the breakfast shop. A strong foot control trolling motor is the only way to fish like this. Most fisherman will tell you that the windy side of the lake moves the plankton that the bait fish feed on not they are pushed there by the wind. See guys watching us and they drive themself crazy with the hand control some try to kick it and look so funny.

To say that wind and hard times are always around in the spring never made a trip to TB before a front. Cop Cop Smith and I one year fished top water all year in the Sound. Would say more wind then not but believe me one out 3years is about the average. River the same way several years ago never got near flood stage this year second time over flood stage. Calif. had no water for many years now having to open up the spillways because the lakes are about to overflow. My point every year is different some bad some good and this one is bad with wind and rain.
