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.

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
