Lakers and weather

6 posts in this topic

I'm headed up to Burntside this weekend and was wondering if the weather patterns affect Lake trout like it does Walleyes, like if a cold front rolls through like it's supposed to on Thursday (9/6/07) will it kill the bite? I'm hoping not because the same darn thing happened last year at this time on Shagawa while chasing Walleyes. A cold front rolled through on Thursday and we went up Friday and didn't catch a thing till late Sunday just before we left. I want to avoid another non-productive weekend and if this is the case I'll chase after Lakers till sunday. Any thoughts?

I've caught them in all weathers. Low pressure, high pressure weather, they'll bite.

Trout in general can be weird. Seems like when you don't think you will catch anything, those can be the most productive days. Then again, you can go after them the very next day after a good slaying and not get a bite even though you are in the same weather pattern and depth, etc. Only thing you can do is put your time in and hope for the best! Have fun!

I'll agree with most on this subject. However, if there's a storm front moving in (say 30 or so miles away) I've found that to be most productive. Also looking back at when I kept a log on that lake, stabilty over a few days also seemed to trigger them whether is was low or high. Just stable. FWIW

I have my best luck w/ lakers on sunny, bluebird days. Usually when the clouds roll in, it shuts down.

I prefer sunny calm days with temps in the mid 70's for driving a boat around in circles... grin.gif

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
