Weather concerns?

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has any opinion on the bite this weekend given the weather forecast. I was planning on going out of Arneson's but would wait for a better weekend if this cold is going to mess things up. Any opinions?

Im going up this weekend also. Weather is already cold up there. The forcast shows nothing much worse.-11 tonight, -15 Friday and -14 Sat. The barometer is at 29.93 and steady. Steady is the KEY!! I dont think fishing will be bothered much at all. At least I hope not. LOL. goodluck!

Beavers....Well I dunno, I've watched that barometer bounce pretty major the past 48 hours. After mondays -19 degree temp with the barometer reaching 30.32 it then hit 26 degrees yesterday and the barometer hovered for a bit in the 29.60's, 19 for the overnite low. Cloudy with a southerly wind and 22 degrees this morning at 9am and the barometer read 29.59. Since then the wind has shifted to the NW, the sun popped out, the temp fell to 9 and my barometer now reads 29.98 and appears to be still climbing.

A guy may have to just fish harder! Who knows maybe they'll be snappin good come this weekend??

Thanks for the input guys. I still can't decide, the best day of fishing I've ever had there it was -25 with a stiff wind, but I am a little concerned with the pressure. I guess even a bad day at LOW is better than any day in the cities.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
