    Looking for bait fishing in the wind tips. I use the carolina rig with a 1/4 oz. egg sinker but in the wind i usually bump it up to 1/2 oz, but the wind will toss that one around as well. Any tips welcomed thanks.

    Wind and trout fishing don’t mix in my experience. Especially if its tossing a 1/2 oz sinker around.

    Even lighter line if possible.

    Keep your cast low to the water

    I use a rod holder than angles the line at more like a 45 degrees than 90 degrees. Might need to go even heavier. Other option is to embrace the wind and drift a heavy bobber. Trick there is to keep the line tight enough to set the hook on strikes.
