FISHER, I"VE BEEN OUT WHEN IT WAS WHITE CAPPING AND STILL CAUGHT CRAPPIE[lol not much fun controlling boat].actually i think they bite better with a little ripple on the water,just a nice light breeze!the thing to remember is to always try to cast and try to keep the boat headed into the wind.that way you have a more natural presentation,and better boat control! hope this helps you some!! GOOD FISHIN TO YA!!!DENNIS :)

cracker---- if the lake your fishin has a hard bottom and you can keep your bait from bouncein [ie hold it steady ] youwill catsh a few ,but most lakes here in highland county have muck bottoms and the wind stirs up the sediment so much it usually shuts down the fish
