For, I'm Eric Granstrom. I saw a photo posted on the Wenatchee Fisherman's Forum yesterday of an unbelievably beautiful, flat-calm day on Banks Lake. Sounds like the fishing was slow. Guess you need that walleye chop, huh? I'm sure you've been out on days where it was eerily still. Not a breath of wind. The water glass-like. One of those days when every move you make in the boat seems to be three times as loud and a disturbance to all around you. I've had a few of those days in Bristol Bay, Alaska, known more for its completely foul weather than calm. You talk about creepy! It's almost ominous. Like something bad is about to follow. I remember one day fishing with Phil Zukowski on Potholes years ago when it was like that. Flat calm. No wind. And, no fish. Not sure what it is about flat water that caused the fish to go dormant. But any time, even commercial fishing in Alaska, there has been those rare occasions where the wind is still and the water glassy, there have been no fish. Maybe the fish are underwater looking up, thinking, "weird, no wind!" Until next time, Good Fishing!
