Turnover Interrupted

6 posts in this topic

As I was out for the 2nd night in a row, catching no fish, the thought crossed my mind of a possible interrupted turnover. My first initial thought was fairly concise, but went deeper the less catching I was doing. It doesn't seem that far-fetched the more I put into it.(However, I'm not thinking this was the case the last 2 nights, but the fish'n had been a lot better so I was trying to come up with any excuse I could find). But with the off the wall weather patterns we've seen in past few years it wouldn't surprise me that turnover can be either interuppted, slowed down, or even possibly reversed. I can't think of any reason in which this couldn't happen??? Lastly, I could imagine the consequences not being the best for anglers. Anyone have a thought or 2 on this subject? I'd be anxious to hear it!

The lakes turned, the process is not immediately reversible per say, it would take a few weeks of this weather. However fish behavior in warm post turnover conditions may take them out of traditional fall patterns.

In the fall you may have a day or so that warms the surface waters, but when turnover starts it only slows down. When that happens it really makes fishing difficult, which lasts even longer.

I've noticed alot of the lakes down here have been "clearing" up!! fishing hasn't been that bad either!
