Cold Fronts

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey Guts, what's this cold front gonna do to fishing. I have heard/read that fronts don't have much effect on walleyes just that they don't like thunder bumpers. At least the rain has stopped - for now. We might try Black Duck this evening anyway.

In my experience, cold fronts give you a good excuse for not having a good day.
Seriously though, I believe it really effects the shallow water fish on its initial onset.

Generally if you go a little deeper, slow up the presentation you can fair well, seems to me that a jig and minnow work best immediately after a frontal change. Once the front is stationary, go back to your normal offering and presentation.

This front follows a lot of rain and wind, both of which stir things up alot, kicking up lots of natural feed, once again in the shallows, one more reason to go deeper, but stay on the windswept side of the reefs or islands. LOL, guts, <}}}}><

Thanks Guts, now all I have to do is figure out the wind ! Seems like it keeps changing on us. Good reason to go to Black Duck - I can just drift around the island and follow the wind wink.gif
We have a cabin reserved for last full week of Sept. Can't wait for that time of year but we still have lots of fun on Kab/Nam during summer. We are usually on the lake at least once a week all summer. With that much time there, I'm still learning lots.

Guts, we fished Black Duck last night, sat through 2 squalls, did not catch any walleyes or crappies but caught plenty of smallies - one was 20.5" long - weighed 5.2 lbs. Also plenty of very large sunnies. had a great time ! Actually my first time on the lake - definately have to give it another look.

Jon, I intend to but will hit Kab this Wed. I am taking off Wed-Sat. maybe hit B.D. on Sat. You are right, we had some squalls come through and turned fishing right off. I'm still confused about what effect weather has on fish. I do know we had a tough time getting a bite after those storms moved through even though it turned into a beautiful evening after. Talked to a guy who was fishing in Ontario just North of us and he nailed em in the same kind of weather ??

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
