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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
