It's about time

4 posts in this topic

It's about time - been praying for zub-zero temps since last april - about time it finally showed up. Pulled the magnum III out of storage in September - high hopes back then - pulled it again last Friday - some weather jocky told me I should expect -5 for a daytime high over the weekend.

They don't start biting til the really cold stuff sets in - watch and learn - the bite will turn on tonight smirk.gif

It's about time!

I'm with you. I've had tremendous success when the overnight lows were in the -20's and the daytime high was no more than 0. There is a reward for those who persevere and buck the cold and wind.

I've got all my stuff nearly ready. I just hope my old truck will start after sitting out in the cold all day.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
