What will this wind do..

12 posts in this topic

To the fishing on the big lake?

It should mix up the warmer surface water with the cooler water below shouldn't it? Will that help or hurt fishing?

Looks like we will have a mud line so that should help along with warm surface water being blown up on the south shore. If Im here thats where I will start out. You know me always in search of eyes and if a Laker comes about thats ok too. grin.gif

Sorry for the dumb question but I am used to the Ocean whereit takes 2-3 days to lay down after a big blow like that.

Wade, I understand your question, The answer could be rollers. Not really a problem, your boat will ride them like a cork. Up and down, up and down. I'm making myself sick. grin.gif

No fishing today mad.gif, Saturday looks to be alright, but not great, with South winds 10-20. Hopefully that won't happen till the afternoon. Skipper, was that a declaration or a question??

DR, everything I'm seeing for tomorrow is saying SE 15-20. Seems like every time they say Se its always East in town on the big lake. A straight south would be nice.

Well, i drove out to Wisconsin Point this afternoon and Northlander sure was right. There is one heck of a mudline out there, going at least a few miles. Everything on the inside is absolute chocolate milk. Waves were comin in pretty good, about 6 footer. I don't know if i'll get tomorrow either mad.gif

Just checked the forecast and the wunderground says SE 5-10, waves diminishing to 1-3ft. Might get out after all!

Just got back a little while ago, landed 10, 9 lakers and one steelie. Deep deep deep is the key, couldn't find cold water, ended up in 170FOW. Meat rigs in fuscia and green were the key. Don't be afraid to run some stacks.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
