Looking for good weather site

20 posts in this topic

I like www.weather.com, but it takes a lot of clicks to get the information I want. Can you tell me of a good weather site that will quickly tell me the wind and frontal conditions that are relevant to fishing?

Thanks.

I always use the natiional weather service, they pretty much tell the way it is.

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/

For wind forcasts the link below is pretty good, the one on the bottom for MIlle Lacs is very reliable and accurate.

Weather Underground is pretty good, they have a mobile page that shows animated NEXRAD images on mobile phones if wanted. The page is wunderground((Contact Us Please))com.

Weather Underground is one of the best I've found. You can click on Detail for a particular day and get wind speed and direction, temperature, etc. For deer hunting I print out the daily detail and use it to plan which stands to use and how to approach them. Pretty accurate stuff.

Since we are on the weather topic, where is a good site to get total rainfall amounts for day/month/year ?

Accuweather with the normal ending applied will give you a 15 day forecast, and has been reliable for me in the past.

The monthly almanac on weather underground has a daily precipitation recap.

National Weather Service....weather.gov They have a good radar too, as does Weather Underground.

I've never been impressed with the Weather Channels forecasts.

I would also go with accuweather. Gives wind, temp, precip, and pretty much anything else you could want

I like the Weather Undergound also because you can track a storms history for the past few hours and it also projects the future path with the "Storm Tracks" feature.

The Minnesota Climatology site has historic weather data going way back. Select a location, a time period and the information you want and the site will provide it.

I use NOAA, Underground, Intellicast and local TV stations. I'd imagine they all get their data from NOAA or National Weather Service. Some of these use their own meteorologists some don't and just repeat what the NWS meteorologists say.

One of my FAVORITE weather resources to watch and plan for fishing! It' a bit south of the cities.. but might as well be in Hugo when it comes to overall trends and winds etc.. for fishing!

Here's another...

I too use accuweather...the hour-to-hour forecasts are extremely nice (and seem accurate) for planning a hunt or post-work fishing spot. They include wind, barometer, etc... Just takes a couple clicks from home page to your local daily hour-to-hour.

I have spent the summer printing out and double checking reports after the fact. Intellecast, Accu weather, weather underground, weather (Contact Us Please) com, and a few other including the national service and found that accu weather was alway the best when it came tpo wind forecasts.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
