JTWG, you actually hit the wind just right. Northeast Grand is notorious for being a wind tunnel. In march and april it blew 25-40 consistently for weeks. In six days on the water I only had an hour window, after a storm, where the wind was down completely.
I had a buddy who went bonefishing for the first time this year and my advice to him was to forget about the 90' cast. We took him out on the windiest couple of days to practice. He threw inside 40'-50' upwind and across wind for hours practicing hitting a dinner plate. Those fish have a knack for offering fleeting shots right into the teeth of the wind
. He agreed that was the perfect way to prep for the trip.
