That will make for an uncomfortable ride in some of these stretches, but from a fish-catching perspective, it should really turn things on. These White River lakes are known as "wind" lakes. It doesn't matter what your pattern is or was, windy banks start to really matter on days like this.
A guy can sack a bag quick. In the overall scheme of things it won't make a big impact for Palaniuk if he can just add a little more. But for the the rest of the field, those who are fighting for Toyota Tundra Angler of the Year points or a better pay day, that means a possibility of making a big move.
It will certainly improve the fishing.
