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

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
