When choosing a fishing spot, make sure to take the wind direction into consideration. The wind blows phytoplankton and other surface foods towards the windward shore. This attracts insects, crustaceans, and bait fish that feed on it. When so much food is concentrated in one area this will attract the larger game fish that are looking for a meal.

So when you’re fishing in the wind, try fishing from or near the windward shore. This will help you put more fish in the boat, whether it’s trout or bass. Remember that wind is not the only factor that affects fishing. Look at all the factors before making a decision on where to fish.
