Muskies Inc. Meeting Tonight

6 posts in this topic

Is anybody going to the meeting tonight? I'm not member (Probably will be by the end the night), but I think I might go check it out.

http://www.twincitiesmuskiesinc.org/

Would it be better to just donate to Muskies, Inc. or become a member (Would more of a donation go to fish purchases/promotion than a membership)? I believe I read earlier $30 would buy one fish?

Hey Shawn-

Made it to the meeting last night. Met a couple of guys and compared some notes. Great stuff from Jon on the 8's.

Do you guys have local speakers every meeting? I think I'll grab some more fishing buddies next time.

Hey Shawn,

Is there anything I can do over winter break to help out? I go to school at UW-Madison, but would like to lend a hand over our winter break which runs from mid december to mid January.

If there is a mailing list, could you add my email? cchristenson@wisc.edu

"Do you guys have local speakers every meeting?"

Yes, they do. Usually really good ones.

North Metro M.I. also has speakers each month, Sept - May.

The Twin Cities chapter meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

North Metro meets on the 3rd Tuesday. Everyone is welcome.

Yes we do have speakers at most every meeting. We are fortunate enough to have some guys on the board that are good at convincing some very good sticks to come speak at the meetings. Speakers range from big money big names to more local guides. I really enjoy the lesser known names becuase they often "give up" more important details that can help you improve your tactics.

    • East wind is the worst...!! Bad juju. Always means a storm. Gonna have an East one tomorrow......and my barometer is already headin' down, in time for the 6-8" of big snow tomorrow. Watch it plummet before a bif summer storm, or rise into the 30's on those warming, clear days. I've always watched the winds and barometer since I was a kid (got into the weather thing in "science class") , you can do better yourself than the forecasters do. It's easy and fun, IMO.
    • I guess I never associated a north wind wind lower pressure. Or a south wind with higher pressure.  Learn something new everyday
    • I watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg or mb; millibars) or when it swings up past 30.0 mb. That's my reference for "highs" or "lows" on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. I  love my old dial Aneroid barometer.  They last forever, too.  Mines kicking about 35 years... (That's not mine, pic is for low and high reference...)    
    • 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.?
