This picture from the Toledo light does not look good!I cancelled today's perch trip due to anticipated wave conditions with the forecasted NE and E winds of 15-20. Just wondering if anyone out today could comment on wave conditions- thanks in advance.
I just looked at the photos from the BASS event out of Sandusky today. Looked like a rough one out there! Leader has a 25# basket. Top 19 anglers are over 20# so the bite was good for the guys on fish. The weigh in photos showed a lot of wet anglers that looked whipped. The photographer even got an on water group of photos of a co-angler trying to land a fish and leaned over the back of the boat just a little too much. Next photo shows him in the drink! His angler calmly set his rod down (with a fish on) and helped his co back onto the boat, made sure he was calm and then went up front and finished reeling in his bass! And they were fishing in a Ranger 620. Yikes, I bet a few of those guys are going to want to sleep in tomorrow.
If you were talking about yesterday, you are drastically under estimating at 1-2 foot in the afternoon. Most people at the dock thought 4's were conservative.Waves were 1-2 foot all morning by my estimate and the weather buoy off of Oregon, ohio confirmed this. Most people drastically overestimate the size of waves, there were certainly no 4 footers and nothing that even resembled a 5 foot wave.
You got that right I was out Thrus. and on the way out it was 2 to 3's and coming back 4 to 5's easy. But the fishing was good out in 27'. Ended up with 50 with quite a few over 10"If you were talking about yesterday, you are drastically under estimating at 1-2 foot in the afternoon.

I agree 1-2 in the AM, but they at least doubled in the pm. Wind gusts hit 19 kts east yesterday afternoon in Monroe. I wasn't in Oregon so I can't comment on the conditions there.
