When I'm in a trough and look at a wall of water well above my head, it's just 3-5's LMAO
Had more than one time when I was up there that we would completely lose sight of the horizon at the bottom of a wave. Not used to that coming from LSC.
When I first started fishing the big lake I thought Noaa measured the wave amplitude and not the total height. Then one day I was watching the bottom on the graph move 8 feet on every wave and wondered why no one else was out there...

This is gonna sound really nerdy, but I’m thinking regarding the buoy is that it is reporting wave amplitude, rather than the height from crest to trough? That’s my only guess from what I remember from physics because everytime I’m out it seems like the waves are about exactly double what the buoy says.
Anybody getting the itch.....we'll be getting lines wet soon!

south west winds last few days should bring up another set up before next flip. bring your 10 colors, 7's, maybe a 300 copper for the last hoorah in the big lake
NOAA Definition
Significant wave height
Significant wave height is the average of the highest one-third (33%) of waves (measured from trough to crest) that occur in a given period. (NOAA)

Well....only a few fish in the bay today...caught one teens male...pretty dark w red belly. But not seeing a push in the river yet. Talked to a few guys that saw them in the bay over the weekend...lockjaw and surfacing they said. Those fish must be in the lower river on their way up.

Ripping windy from wsw breaking over s pier pretty good w whitecaps coming straight into the channel. Emptiest launch I've seen other than no trailers. About 10 when we put in and 3 left when I got mine. Shoulda been here last week huh? So much for timing vacation week right.

Thermocline will probably be deep with the west wind the past two days

So is the bay completely empty from the other day?
If I was a betting man I’d say probably not
Usually they bite better when there’s less people fishing too

Fished the bay this morning. Got 1 male 5 minutes in...only hit in 2 hrs w 2 guys. Saw no other action....maybe 10 boats total. Marks 25ish fairly consistent but slow. No jumpers or fish surfacing.
