Weather affecting the bite?

Recommended Posts

Plan to get out this afternoon for some crappie & gills. What do you folks think this weather front will do for the bite. Turn em on or off or not affect em much?

I am not too sure just what it does to the fish but I know it really has an effect on the fishermen, especially if you toss in a little wind… wink.gif

I have been fishing a couple times in this cold front and the bite has really turned on, especially the eyes.
Good luck and stay warm.

The Pike really like to bite just before some cold weather or a storm hits.
Today right before it started snowing I caught a pig of a 28" pike, it was very heathy and fat. Because it was like that it went back down the hole too.

I posted a similar question in the metro lakes forum. With the dropping temps and the supposed approaching storm, I didn't really know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Gills were finicky but aggresive(meaning they were biting readily but just barely hitting) caught a few dozen gills, only 2 or 3 were under 6", about a half dozen over 8" and one over 9". Kept six 7"'s. Also caught one 17" largemouth, and a 5lb pike. Gills and bass on green genz worm tipped with 2 euros, pike on a herring on my tip up. Was really cold today, so i used the back of my station wagon as my shack!

I fished an Annandale area lake today in front of the storm. The perch were really pesky in there @ 16 ft. Every now and then, a pike would come through but they were small. I moved out to 25' at about 4 PM. Caught some small walleyes out there but they only hit for about 1/2 hour. They all got released except one that was gullet hooked. So I guess you'd have to say that the fish bit good today. Windy and cold though......T

Well the weather front didn't seem to make much difference. Went to a favorite pan hole. Brought the wife and from 2:30 till 6:30 was constant action. Picked up around 40 nice gills and couple 13" crappie. This spot has been consistently producing like this for several weeks now, once ya find em.Eat some fresh gills tonight for supper.Love eating what I am catching. Just doesn't taste any fresher than that..

Well, watching the forecast tonight, it looks like here in the cities we are supposed to have snowfall and temps in the teens for the next week or so, what will likely happen with the bite? I was hoping to try out a new lake on wed, but wonder what the bite will be doing...

Wasn't hard and fast fishig, but we got some.

    • Odd, looks like home made brackets on the ends?  May be they had them for some kind of tarp outside?
    • Just picked up a 1978 Bethany compact 560. Got it set up but I can't figure out what these 2 adjustable poles are for.  Anyone know? 
    • friend good luck to you and your wife!!!!   I do know where you are at....  my prayers to ya............
    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence?
