Captain Bret Alexander of Alexander’s Sport Fishing in Green Bay, WI, explains his best technique for working a hair jig for spring walleye in windy weather.

In the wind, Alexander recommends keeping your rod tip low to the water and using a pull/pause technique when working a hair jig. Essentially, your cadence should be such that as soon as it hits the bottom, you give it about a one-second delay to rest and then pull it toward the boat and pause again. By keeping your rod tip lower to the water,  you’ll be able to watch your rod tip and see exactly when your bait hits the bottom.
