Default 30+ Mile winds = Good Fishing!!!

Sat. me and a couple of buddies decided to go fish Buchanan. Brian called Friday and asked if I was sure and I said yep less people following me around. We got out there at six and it was already blowing. Eased over to a point and started catching bait. After 250 or so baits we head to on my favorite spots. Boy was it windy. We took several over the bow and since we weren't catching anything we moved to a more protected cove. After 30 or so minutes I was just ready to move when I some fish showed up. The one rod we had in the water went off. Dropped the rest of the rods down and we had steady fishing for the next 2 hrs. Kept I think 12 and released probably 30 or so more. Very windy and rough. Feel like I have been beat by Mike Tyson!!

Nice... If you can't take the wind those days can produce some serious good action.

I forgot to add all fish caught on live shad in 25-30ft of water. Underwater points and humps mid lake. If your wanting to fish Buchanan start there and jumbo shiners work ad will. If you need a guide call max Milam .

Anytime fish are chasing shad or other off shore bait fish you WANT high winds. Get's the school more active, lowers light levels in the water and gives your bait more of an erratic look. Fish above the school when it's windy, they're a lot more likely to come up then go down to chase bait

Looks like y'all figured it out!

Yep. I kinda giggle when I hear people say " this weekend is going to be pretty and no wind should be good fishing"....that maybe true but the catching sucks. Give me unstable weather everyday.
