The wind actually(theoretically
)should keep the bait fish in-shore.I have also had success with a S or W wind.But as gusty as it seems,I don't think lite tackle will be the answer to get to the fish.....
But like my MoMMa used to say,"you won't know unless you try".
Gonna to try to bottom fish Ruddee this evening,I might also throw some Storm Shads???
The wind didn't stop a minor blues blitz today at around 4:30 at Lynnhaven Pier.
The blues were all tiny (smallest I have seen so far) but they were in large number for about 20 minutes to a half hour. Birds workin the water really well, and though the fish were small it was a good time.
Have you ever noticed that those small blues are FEROCIOUS?! First fish caught shook hard enough to stick me with the gotcha plug, second one took a bite on my fingers. No real damage but ouch!
