Cold Front?

4 posts in this topic

Coming up this weekend, wondering if the cold front has slowed things down or changed the pattern any.

Haven't been out since last weekend, but the front/storm that came thru last Friday afternoon didn't effect fishing much except that the waves made it a little tougher. This front may have dropped the water temps a few degrees, but the stable weather should keep fishing good. I bet a quite few more big pike will start showing on the reefs with the cooler weather grin.gif. Good luck!

later,

We had a working weekend at deer camp this past weekend and hit the water for a few hours Sat. afternoon. We picked up 3 fish with 4 lines down and talked to several other boats at the landing and all had similar luck. One of our party was up the previous weekend and hammered them in the same area so I would say the cold front shut them down for us on Saturday.

My wife and I fished out of Zippel on Nicks boat last Thursday, full day charter.

One guy on the boat was on the day prior and he said the boat had their limit of eye's by 11am, we didn't do quite that well.

By 3pm we were fished out and we had our legal limit of fish and four saugers. There were some doubles and a few times all 6 lines were out of the water at once.

An older guy from Minneapolis and I seemed to have the best luck with the larger eye's our turns were back to back too. We caught a 22, 23, 25in eye's and he caught and couldn't revive a 29.5 eye. My 30.5 in eye fared better and after a handful of pics she swam away under her own strength. Five fish from 4-10 lbs, two people one outing, not bad!!!

It was a pleasure to finally ride along on Nicks personal boat and even better to land and release my biggest eye yet.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
