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.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
