Wed-Thu Big Fish Watch

9 posts in this topic

I won't be able to make it up, but it appears Wed-Thu could be big fish days in the area. On Wednesday, a fairly strong and deepening low will spin up in Canada and trail a front into the Red River Valley. Surface winds will be aligned s/sw with the front, which means it won't push east very quickly. The front will move through or be very near the DL area by late day Wednesday, but basically become stationary as a very strong impulse develops to the sw, serving as an anchor. It would appear the front could wobble in the area through late Thursday or even Friday morning. We saw this earlier in August and had three crazy days in a row, but also some severe weather in the lakes area...so keep an eye out and carry your NOAA weather radio on Thursday.

Us operational meteorologists usually consider the long range stuff voodoo meteorology, but the long range climate dudes are forecasting a 30 percent likelihood of above normal temperatures for MN for the Dec-Feb time period. This will be updated next week (once monthly toward mid month)

We had 2 boats trolling plugs last night on the 2 best spots on this particular lake (a lake I've fished for over 20 years) from 7-9:30pm, and all we got was 1 walleye. And this lake is known for an evening plug trolling bite. Sorry to rain on your forcast.... frown.gif

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
