Anyone have better luck ice fishing when it's foggy? My buddy and I hammered the fish in front of the Prarie one day it was extremly foggy? I don't know if it had to do with the pressure or what, but boy where they bitting. cool.gif

I really do not think the fog had anything to do with it.

I think you hit the nail on the head with the barometric pressure.

It was probally low.

The pressure is the 1st thing I'll look at when I wake up prior to coffee and heading out the door to fishing.

It's my main indicator on how I'm gonna attack those fish.

Low pressure below 29.8 is my favorite.Next would be if the barometer is moving up or down and lastly if it's above 30 and steady.

Above 30 and steady can be good fishing too if there has been 3-4 days of it.

      Jay! You still in Alabama? I'll be headed back to Texas soon - but NOT until ramps freeze over up here. Wasn't going to go fishing today but sun came out and wind died so I headed to lake. Arrived at noon, wind started blowing and scattered snow/rain. Never fails.  But I had good luck with seven big pike, 3 walleyes and 11 bass. Fished alone. Tried to talk Mike into trolling the shoreline for pike on Wednesday but he didn't want to do that so that is what I did in my boat today. They were where I had caught some in late Fall a few years back. All around 30"-36". All stuffed full of bait which I guess are ciscos since they move shallow this time of year to spawn. Hopefully get some more big pike tomorrow. Trailer lights went out so have to fix those first. Best bait 6" Lunker City Swim Fish on heavy jig head. Bass & walleyes on flukes with fairly heavy head because of wind. Forgot camera so no pictures today.

      Know of a breeder that has a 3 yr old Vizsla that is giving him away. His grandfather was a champion but this one just didn't turn out to much of a hunter. He'll only listen to the boss and no one else. He's not gun shy but he is real sensitive apparently, whatever that means. He's neutered and up to date with his shots. Sounds like more of a family dog then a hunter.
