Fishing Conditions -- your opinion

4 posts in this topic

Looking at the Twin Cities weather for Saturday -- looks like thunderstorms for Friday nite and Sat morning. I am traveling and won't be back in town until late Friday nite. My brother is in town and we plan to fish Saturday. If the forecast is true -- looks like bad timing. Any opinions and/or suggestions besides fishing Friday nite (I wish I could)

Hey Tom,

First off, I hope all is well, and welcome back from Cali or the Far East.

If you've been following at all, WBL has been a zoo as of late. I'd suggest secondary waters, possibly to head up 35 towards East/West Rush or even a new lake like Cross. If you're on limited time windows, as it sounds you are, I'd suggest less pressured waters and hope for the best.

I'll shoot you a note tomorrow if you're aol addy is still active, or try me if you still have my contact info.

Regards, Chris

i wouldnt worry about the conditions...i would fish hard and cover a lot of water, alot of fish are hitting now, not looking or following. i would fish hard as turnover is right around the corner and could be tough once turnover starts (atleast it is for me).... then back to the lazy followers!!!!

I don't see a forecast with any bad weather, i'd be out pounding it either way though. My 2nd best day muskie fishing ever was on a nasty/rainy/windy day. Some lakes are on fire on days like that.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
