Windy Wednesday

Wednesday, I fished with Willard for a couple hours after lunch. He had fished the morning for a short time and caught nothing. The wind was blowing pretty good out of the north and he found it difficult to keep his pontoon in one spot. When I showed up he thought that was reason enough to go try again. “Persistence”, he said, “is the key; maybe we can just wait them out”. With a full top on the pontoon the wind did move us around, but being inside kept up quite comfortable from the cool breeze. We anchored up in about seventeen feet of water and the depth varied a little depending which way the wind pushed the pontoon. We used spinners and three ounces of sinkers kept us close to the bottom. All that weight about wore my arm out. Willard was right, we stayed right there and a couple hours later we had our eight walleyes; all nice eaters.
