great report Kayakrich! Yeah, Jack is a pretty cool guy. That was actually my first weekend fishing the open water and was impressed on Jack and Lydia's. Great place. I'm glad you and Mike got some action. The winds definitely picked up as we were leaving. It's tough to hold a spot sometimes. What i do is i put the back end of the boat in the direction of the wind and sometimes keep the trolling motor on (especially if the fishing is good at the spot) in reverse. It's tough, but can be done.
