    The winds are the same as it was yesterday while we were out. Solid 3s and some 4s from daybreak to 2pm, all tight together waves. Had a buddy that came out by us and turned around, only saw 2 other boats. Fun times!

    West side probably wouldn't be horrible, behind the island as well

    Thanks for the report. I was contemplating fishing today but decided it was a no go. Sounds like I made a good decision for once. 3 footers to big for my boat

    I was in 26 feet, with 3 and 4 footers. Plenty of white caps. Managed a single eye, and a big laker.

    What is everyones experience on big waves? Do you catch just as many?

    I have trouble going slow enough....since I don't have trolling bags, nor do I have a kicker. So in the summertime, 2-3 footers typically push me 1.3-1.8 mph running crawler harnesses on bottom bouncers. That is too fast.

    The same for 2-3 footers in cold water, I want to run crankbaits at 1.1.1-4 mph, and hard to slow down.

    A kicker or a trolling bag would probably be the solution.
