Possible record low temps

11 posts in this topic

I heard tomorrow(friday) could have record low temps. Any thoughts or opinions what this weather is going to do to the fishing this weekend? Cold front or feeding frenzy?

I remember about 6 years ago or so there were 3 days in the middle of august where the temps got down in the low 60s and during that stretch I caught my first tigers. Any chance it happens again?

Good luck,

Zelmsdawg

I think it's going to kill the bite, but I suppose it has been fairly consistently cold in my area lately so it might not hurt it too much.

I suppose I don't really care, I'm going to be out there either way.

It's not like we're at a mid summer peak or anything...water temps have already been dropping the last two days, what's a little more?

Not sure about the muskies but we had similar weather June 7th and the pike were going nuts hitting just about anything.

These cool temps shouldn't hurt to much. Yesterday morning was cool. I had 3 hookups and 1 muskie boated.

didn't move a single fish.

Just got in, I've been out since a little after 8 this morning.

caught 2 decent smallmouth and saw about a 30 pound Buffalo. That was all the action I could stand.

I lied when I said that was all the action I could stand. Went out again around 7, moved 2 fish. One of them upper 40's and came in hot once on a believer and once on a DCG. Pretty sure she was just curious, saw her surface about 4 times in the area and i'm sure she was just gorging on baitfish and had no need to bite my lure. oh well, made me forget about this morning.

Zelms, funny you bring up that weather from some years back and tigers I remember it really well too for the same reason. Really hot stretch followed by a big, big cool down I was on the water the day before and caught two tigers (first muskies, ever) I was stoked. I think this weather is slightly different though it hasnt been overly hot much and the dropping temps are not as abrupt.

With that said my buddy and I just got back in from a short trip this eve and the fish were up and active. I had a big fish follow, a nice fish hooked up for a bit, one fatty mid 30s pike, and my buddy was happy to land his first muskie at 36". All our action came on top with docs and jackpots.

I got out yesterday around 5 and had a hot fish come up burning a bucktail and one short strike, until the wind died. Then the action quit along with it. I liked the cooler weather reminded me of fall fishing and the lake was quiet!

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
