Fished LaSalle yesterday from 12 to 6, cloudy with winds from the NE at about 20-30 mph. Ramps were closed and only 10 other vehicles there. Fished the windblown south shoreline, threw roostertails and 2" twister tails parallel to shore at varied speeds.

Totals:

Around 25 smallmouth (too bad not one was over 8") :sad:
4 yellow bass 9-11"
1 bluegill 8"
All fish released.

Was kinda cool watching the schools of carp riding in the waves that were crashing shore. A few people I talked to said they were fishing with the wind & catching cats on the bottom with crawlers, some being decent. Maybe fishing with the wind next time will provide better results??? O well hindsight is always 20/20.

Thanks and good fish'n,
RAM

In windy conditions, you get better "line control" fishing the shallows with your back to the wind. Fish facing the wind for deeper presentations.
