Hi fellow fishing people! Take a look at the AMFisH fishing vlog that’s up it’s about how to position your boat in the wind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GNR_Mkk4FE&feature=player_embedded
We have all fished on those crazy windy day’s and it can be difficult to find a way to fish when the wind is doing whatever it want’s with the boat. In this vlog I discuss some things that you can do to actually use the wind to your advantage.
If you position yourself right in the middle of the wind where it kind of feels like it is the strongest, you can use it to drift you along shorelines so you can actually fish without battling the wind.
It’s relatively easy to find this spot in the wind as you drive your boat horizontally along the blowing wind until you feel that strong spot that is where you will want to stop and try to maintain that center position.
This will allow you to be pushed along by the wind making casting much easier and you can cast further and without any reel issues because the wind will be behind you. You will need to reel in quite quickly in a strong wind or you will soon drift over your bait, but this is a great way to have some intense fish strikes as those windy day’s will blow schools of baitfish around the lake.
You can also position yourself to go into the wind, this would be with the help of your motor or trolling motor being on. What this type of fishing allows you to do is fish the wind in a different style, slower retrieve with the bait but a little more battle heading into the wind.
All in all why let the wind ruin a day of fishing when you can just work with it to produce fish!
Hope you found this vlog helpful.
