West Wind Advice...

Looks like I'll be dealing with a relatively light west wind on 4 of the 6 days of my boat rental.....from what I've read, a West wind is no bueno, any advice on what changes a guy should make?  Or is it just the brisk west winds that make things difficult? 

It's always been east and southeast winds on all my previous trips down to the Keys..

    What are you selling? Hotdogs and cappuccino to A vegetarian on the beach. ;)

    I'd look for A structure that works in you favor. Drift or anchor accordingly.

    With light winds you could deep drop
    You gotta fish the days you are there
