Sunny Conditions

With the stable pattern of weather and lots of bluebird skies the next few days what will that do to the fishing. I have had success with nickel blades with the sun out. Will the sun drive them tighter into cover, or deeper? Retrieve faster or slower?

depends on water clarity and overall fish attitude. You just have to get out there and see if they're going. Bluebird skies usually means i'm not off the water until about 10:30-11:00. If I wasn't so lazy I'd probably stay out later than that.

With the drop in temperature lately though the night bite might not be as an inviting an option as it was earlier in the summer.

I have not been on the water as much as I would like to be but from what I have witnessed in the last couple of evenings with bluebird days and light winds my action has come at primetime/sunset on the outside edge. Nothing after dark for me.

As far as a retrieve I might mix it up, but my tendency would be to burn'em.

Was out tonight in West Central MN from 2-9 and didn't see a thing fishing deep and shallow with blades and dawgs. It was gorgeous though having the sun setting behind you and the huge moon rising in front of you. Wishing I could've had a big ol fish in my hands with the daylight change in the background. Ahhh well...one of these days! If you caught big fish everyday, would you still find it enjoyable? (Wishful thinking smile )

Speed and brighter color patterns would be where I would start with the puzzle. if nothing goes then move deeper/ shallower or switch presentation. Being on the water and fishing during "primetime" on days like the past week are substantially up your odds. You will need to let your previous experience and your fish encounters from each day determine how you are going to get fish to bite.

Nickel blades and speed have been working for us during the day. Colored blades and slooooow at night has been the ticket the past week or so. Dano and I had some fun with them last night. Pics are on my site.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
