I don't know so much about times to fish but when the pressure is low (or falling), I focus more on sandy breaklines or grassy flats (i.e. harder bottom areas) and vice-versa when the pressure is high (or rising).

well i know somone here has more information about it than i do but the jist of it that i have gotten is that the lower the pressure, the more micro-nutrients that are able to float around in the water. the more micro-nutrients in the water column then the more baitfish, and finally the more baitfish the more active fish tend to be. this is what i have gathered from my readings but im sure if you search on here for bari pressure you will find something.

I have one spot ice fishing that when the barometer is dropping and back on the rise the big walleyes come feeding in this spot.It is a 14 foot hole and the rest of the lake is 10 foot max depth.Last december we caught a 5.8 lber and a 7.3.A couple years ago i took a freind out to this spot with the same cicumstances and he caught a total of 9 big walleyes.He was using my fishing poles as well.I caught zippo that night.He never lets me live that one down mad

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
