One of the toughest things about fishing in the wind is staying on a productive spot. When you find a productive location like the edge of an underwater weed bed, use a drift sock in combination with your trolling motor to help you hold your position. In many Midwest lakes, weeds will grow in ten to twelve feet of water during the warmer months. If you find weeds at a given depth, the can likely be found at the same depth all over the lake you're fishing.
