storms

6 posts in this topic

I'm guessing that thurs. nights storms are going to make the root and zumbro high and dirty.The worst fishing condition there is,is chocolate water.Anyone with thoughts on what might still be fishable,besides reservoirs?Does anyone live close to any of the streams to give us a report? Also I would like to add to a comment I saw yesterday on giving away honey holes.The web site itself allows us to share info so we can enjoy what we all learn.The hope I have is that those of us here if we are treading into others areas of fortune will enjoy,but return all fish to the water so it can remain what it was.I know that everyone does not do this ,but I believe that if we are learning from others on this forum,we should.Fish populations can be a difficult balance.Over population can be bad also.

Ike,

Usually any luck had post cold front is deeper and TIGHT to cover while fishing slowly.

So fishing deep in the weeds or right near the base of trees or in a big cluster of trees.

Plastics fished slowly or live bait are your best bets.

It is usually real tough fishing, no doubt, but fish can be caught.

I usually have better luck fishing the evening after the cold front goes through. The fish seem to wake up some after being in a funk all day. Not that it is great fishing, but it is better than it was during the day.

But, perkins is always a viable option!

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
