Paul Mueller knew yesterday, when looking at the wind forecast on his SailFlow app, that he'd probably have to leave Lake Ontario earlier than he wanted today. He was hoping he could catch what he needed in two or three hours, then move to the more protected waters of the St. Lawrence River.
"You never know here," Mueller said. "The wind gets to blowing here and it turns evil. I've seen it go in 15 minutes from okay to oh, boy. I think later in the day, none of that stuff is going to be fishable."
Well, it's getting later in the day, and it's rough out there. Mueller doesn't have what he needs, according to BASSTrakk, which shows him trailing Chris Johnston by 1-5 at 12:45 p.m.
