Fishing On Windy Days: How To Use The Wind To Your Advantage
By: Tony Acevedo on April 8, 2019
Just because the weather is bad doesn’t mean the fishing has to be!
We talked last week about how to find feeding inshore fish in bad weather, and we’re continuing the conversation with these tips on how to fish during windy days.
With just a few simple tricks, you can use the wind to your advantage and have a great day out on the water.
Watch the video below for the secrets on how to leverage the wind, plus see how I did this on a recent trip to catch a nice redfish.

If you want to give yourself the best chance at catching fish, while not fighting with mother nature the whole time, follow these tips:
- Plan your trip with the wind. If the wind is coming from the north, start at the northernmost spot and drift down south to your other spots.
- Position your boat or kayak perpendicular to the wind, which will slow your drift down.
- Have a drift sock or drift anchor ready to slow your drift down even more if necessary.
- Use a push pole or trolling motor to guide your drift towards your target areas.
- Don’t forget to fish during the drifts between your target areas. That’s when I caught this nice red!
