The wind continues

Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report
Daily winds have made for an interesting but tough week of fishing. Winds have been blowing from the east at 15-25 MPH with occasional gusts to 35 which takes us out of the wood on the south end of the Farm. However we have been finding fish on the levee just off the east wall.
Regulars Joe and Karen are here for the week and are seeing a repeat of weather that they saw in December. Being the veteran bass fishing enthusiasts that they are, they are not letting the weather get them down. For the conditions out there they are doing quite well. A bit of adjustment has put them in the position of catching as well as fishing.
I was scheduled to meet them this morning again but when I went to start the truck I got nothing. The last turn of the ignition key was the ignition switch's last hurrah. Luckily I found someone to fix it for me right away so I'm back in business.
Some of the areas that we fished: Pinball alley - water was so clouded that I couldn't see the power head of the trolling motor, however we did manage a couple of bass. East wall dredging ditch levee - water was a bit cleaner and produced a few more bass. NE corner of the Farm- water was cleaner yet and more bass in the area of the floaters. South end of the Marsh - again the water was so cloudy that I couldn't see the power head of the trolling motor.
Baits that were producing: Yamamoto Senkos and Swimming Senkos produced the most bass for us. Spinner bait in chartreuse produced the balance of the days catch. We did try rattle traps but all we caught with them was wood.
See you out there.
