Whats your thoughts on this weekend?

6 posts in this topic

The forcast is for a system moving in thursday, calling for ENE winds an cloudy with a snow to 60 percent chance, but warm, high teens to low 20's. Unfavorable conditions from my experience. What do you guys think? An what would your plan of attack be if ya go. Seems that every time I hit that kinda of weather I shoulda saved the money. LAter boar

East winds aren't my fav either... I did ok last Sunday with that crappy SE wind...

It's tough to know when the dumb things will bite... One of my best days on the ice was -30 this year...

Don't you hate when you get out there, and the first few fish run away from your offering? You know it's going to be a long day... Then there are the days when everything on the radar smashes your spoon... I'd prefer stable weather with pressure around 29 or so... but I don't get the luxury of picking when I can fish based on the weather... so I go when time allows... Someday...

ENE is probably my least favorite condition anytime of year though.

Headed up Thursday morning, lets hope the fish gods are on our side. Bringing a rookie up so I'm hoping for a little action or he'll start to question my credibility, if he hasn't already. Bill

Hey Boar,

I'm with you on the east wind, in fact I just plain hate wind, period!

That said, one of our best days this year was sitting on the ice with a rippin' NE wind, blowing snow to the point of filling the hole and the Marcum screen every 5 minutes.

Had a S.E. wind today and I caught 30 fish from 10:30-4:30 on Starren Shoal including a 24" eye, 17" sauger, & 12.5" perch. I wasn't at all happy with where we set up but too many fish to move.

Point is: you never know. 'Bout the time I think I have a hard & fast rule for fish, they go & screw it up.

You're "salty" enough to know that, you're just wanting us to talk you into going, right?

Now go catch fish!

hey bturk Thur. is suppose to be NW winds an partly cloudy, then a overnight change to a ENE system for the weekend. If you guys can get fishing for sure on Thurs. an be just ahead of the high pressure front that moves in overnight , you should do well. This last Sunday morning was clear an bright, I moved my sleeper into 20' an was fishing by 8-30, bam, bam, bam, bam, I was done with walleys with in the hour, by ten Am the clouds moved in an I couldnt buy a fish. So being right on the front of the front you should do well. But it's LOW an anything gose. Please post how you do. Me, I wont be up til Fri. when it's already moved in, so I might wait till next weekend. LAter boar

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Thanks Cliff, weather looks dynamite so that's a good start!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.
