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

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
