Headed to aurora around 1:30pm. As I approached the check in, the patrol boat was leaving the lake! (I assume it needed gas) I spoke with the boat check in guy and he said that I had lost my mind wanting to go out in all of that wind. My response was that "I just wanted to get my boat wet." Little did I know that I would be getting sprayed by a windsurfer minutes later! I hadnt even put my jacket on yet. So, being cold and wet right off the bat didnt help matters. I preceded to troll out with my new downriggers dragging small rapalas. The wind definitely played havoc on things. After an hour of battling the wind, i decided to call it a day. Zero fish, learned lots. Is it me or are the boat ramps really filled in with sand this year?
