Ok, when do you pack it up and head home? Does it depend on wind speed, direction? What's your breaking point?
If I were free tomorrow I would be up in Nj regardless of rain/wind chill. I think there's a good chance of it lighting up with the heavy west wind.If fishing biting I'm there until I'm satisfied with my catch. Fish not biting until I can't take the cold or I'm convinced fish won't start biting. That being said I was going to drive 2hrs and fish somewhere tomorrow Jersey,de,or Maryland. But after looking at wind chill decided to stay local and try to find out if the wind spots here.
It's a W/NW wind. Easy to throw in and COULD bring the masses of bunker in that are getting torn up by 30-50lb bass 1.5 miles off.Well kracka you're a better man than me. Brielle is 2hrs from me that's the farthest North in jersey I have fished. Can't see myself traveling past there with just the hope I will be able to fish
Nice! And only 10 minutes from home.To bad you couldn't find a out of the wind spot Andy. Same wind up here I fished 4p-6p caught at least 15 crappie all less than 9in so they all were released. Found them in 6ft of water near boulders. And most were less than 6ft from shore. So yes I was retrieving right along the bank catching fish. Oh and 2 nice 14in bass on microlight rod with 4lb test made things very fun indeed.
I made it out for a bit on Saturday. Wind was brutal. Fishing some light hardware on an ultralight setup and had a few big gusts grab a couple casts and drop them 5 or ten feet in front of me. 6 or 7 small bass (no keepers) around sunset and hook in the knuckle for my efforts. Not a great fishing day but better than being stuck in the house.The wind was bad. One crappie and a few little yellow perch. Maybe tomorrow.
