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.

      Spent past 4 days (and nights till 2am) on Ottertail one wheelhouse and 4 portables. Bite was next to (0). 5 guys 4 day got 5 eye 14" to 17" and 6 perch 7 to 10". Friday -21 on the lake at 3pm. Pressure at 30.90. Did not move a lot but did some moving 30' to 9'. Saturday bit warmer day made it to 11 deg. Same result moved a lot humps, breaks valleys, 40' to 9'. Marked lots of fish in deeper water and some at 9 to 16'. Resort owner talked to half dozen other villages on west end, All having no success. Pressure never got below 30.28 but temps warmed to upper 20' on Sunday. Not a banner weekend but sometimes "that's fishing" Took a fall on slick icy parking lot week ago, found out today I have 3 fractured ribs. No wonder my right side hurt a bit.

      I've had issues with my Eskimo Z-51 reopening holes, getting caught at different parts along the hole ON occasion. Other times it ripped right though. So my answer pretty much sucks but from experience they aren't the best at opening holes.

      Very nice weather to be out chasing Walleyes/Saugers. Some extra special good news in this video wrap up
