El Nino

8 posts in this topic

This cool weather pattern we are experiencing is said to be the cause of El Nino which brings the jet stream down here instead of mostly staying in Canada. As nice as the weather has been, I feel like overall angling is down.

I'm interested in others opinions of this trend and what was it like when this happened like 10 years ago? I really don't remember that far back.

Cool? It has been hot this week in case you haven't noticed.

I have had better luck fishing this year, but I would take cooler weather anytime, even if it meant fewer bites.

It seems like its been cool compared to the last few years but I think its been average.

Fishing was a little slow early on for me, not sure if weather is to blame, the past few weeks have been pretty darn good to me though.

I'm not really sure about all the climate changes, maybe just nature...

If in doubt maybe give Al Gore a call !! LOL

I guess everyone has a different tolerance for hot and cold but for me this summer has been a let down so far. I like it hot. I wait 9 months for this weather. Turn up the broiler let's have some summer! I know it's weird but I like humidity too. Really! In fact, I don't trust any air I can't see. So bring it on! Winter's not far away. Let's have a "Cool Hand Luke" kind of summer. That's what I'm talking about!

I'm more tolerant of the heat since I've lost 30lbs smile

Still prefer the cooler weather though.

Thus far, I have no complaints. Yea, fishing has been a little off, but not terrible. The weather is what it is, we cant control it. Some like to think we can, but nature is always bigger than man.

If this were what passed for "Summer" every year, sign me up.

    • I'm looking for suggestions on a dog blind for duck hunting. My son wants to train his lab pup to stay in a blind in the duck boat anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look for.  
    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.  
    • hahaha just watched the 6 o'clock news, doesn't sound like anything north of the twin cities is going to get anything.
