I was very close to going out last night after the so called weather. I'm confident we would have caught fish.

I'm not a total believer that weather can totally kill a bite. I just changes things. It may put fish in a negative mood, but often times you can still entice a few to bite with the appropriate presentation and such.

I'd fish after a storm anyday. Somedays we do average/decent and sometimes it stinks.

I think if we let the weather dictate our fishing schedule we'd almost never get out. If I have plans to fish, that's what I do (unless its unsafe)

I tend to think that different species are affected in various ways. From experience trout seem to be the most affected, especially with rain and rising/off colored water and just weather in general. It seems that bass/panfish and such you can catch by changing tactics or presentation mush like Tyler suggested. Trout I have not figured out a way to get them to cooperate if weather is an issue. Maybe someone can enlighten me.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
