    Kicking around idea of trolling bay for first time tomorrow. Wind looks a little gusty but out of south and west? Was thinking launch at mouth let wind push us out? I don’t need consistent 3-4’ in my 1775 side console impact. Could hit river if too sporty but really wanna try bay. Any opinions from you bay regulars is appreciated.

    Gonna be fine in am regardless.
    Probably 2-3' where the walleye are at. Wind is out of a good direction so you'll be fine. Trolling with waves makes them seem smaller till you turn

    I'd launch at 7 so you're setting boards at day break. Looks like might be choppy by 1 but then calming back down.

    Good luck.

    Windfinder shows W/SW winds about 20 mph in morning. Fishable but may be choppy!

    I’d launch somewhere other than Patterson. It was a zoo today. Lots of rigs blocked in by dips&$-:s

    And why the duck hunters have to power up their 1.21 jigawat floodlights and blind everyone else at the launch is also irritating

    If it's your first time I would pick a better day. Gonna be bumpy, and fishing was slow anyways today.

    One thing to remember for the guys who don't usually fish in the fall......
    Just because you see a boat don't assume they are fishing, there's a lot of duck hunters using a regular looking boat out there. They'll have a float boat not too far away and they are hard to see

    Also, the nets are still out, they are on the north end of the Black Hole
