I did just that, got home, checked the wave forecasts, 1-2 feet - easy paddling waves on the big lake.
Turned out to be glass calm, barely even a swell.
5:00, left work.
5:12, got home and checked the waves.
5:25, wetsuit on and car pulled around.
5:30, Kayak on the car.
5:50, Parked at Montrose beach ready to embark.
6:00, one rod strung up after the long drag across the grass and beach.
I didn't land anything, but I got to do some good exploration and really used the night as a test to see if it's possible to hit the water after work. If these 10-14 foot waves ever subside I'll be right back at it, this time with the battleship in full attack mode.
