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.

      Wow I was also out this weekend was very slow for us with only 4 fish caught all weekend for 4 guys I think I put over 4 miles on the truck searching

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      Y'all be careful out there!!

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
