South pier is plenty fishable today. West winds will allow you to cast half away cross the lake.
FYI: water temp is 48 degrees
17" is very sketchy for the big lake.
Boated that lake for 30 years and saw a lot of boats much bigger than that go down very close to shore.
Pick your days very carefully, know the weather and what is coming. That lake can turn into your worst nightmare in 15 minutes.
You think, oh my boat is fast and I can just shoot back to the harbor. NOT after the waves pick up you cant and they pick up fast. Now you are crawling and waves are busting over the bow in your face.
If you have any reservations about the seas just stay home and boat/fish a calm day.
Be safe, stay alive!
Hi, been fishing the harbour for 3rd day. Fish are jumping all around. I saw four caught. None for me. The water is 66°. I threw everything and used spawn. The Root looks empty. The NE wind yesterday morning made the lake rough. Didn't get to south pier. Need some cooler days.
