The wind - it’s the single most important factor I take into consideration when preparing for a tournament on northern waters. I want to ensure I can make it to the fish I find in practice during the tournament. It doesn’t do me any good to find fish on the east side of Pelee Island on Lake Erie during practice when the wind is forecasted to blow 20 mph out of the east for the tournament. Not only would it be nearly impossible to get there launching from St. Clair Metropark, but even if I did it would be too difficult to fish effectively.
