Most can't predict what tomorrows weather will bring. I'll say that forecast changes numerous times by opening day. I think those long term forecasts area joke. Two days ago it had clouds, rain and wind. I'll bet money its cold, cloudy and rainy. Seems like that is the norm the last few years! Oh well, we are still fishing and it might keep a few folks at home. Can't wait for next Friday. Let the games begin!

My guess for the weather is that it's going to be like last weekend and this upcoming weekend. Starts out really nice on saturday and on sunday we'll have a chance at a shower or storm. Something in my gut tells me it gonna be a great opener weather wise. (Isn't it always?) grin.gif

I predict temps in the 50's with a 15-20 mph NW wind... all combined with a constant sprinkle of rain. This will be punctuated with a few heavier showers.

When I think of opener, this seems to sum it up every year. We've had a nice run of good weather. It projects right up to this coming weekend. That should set the state for a run of bad weather through opener weekend. My glass is half empty. But, this way I can only be happily surprised if it turns out otherwise.

I think you may have to drastically change it, just so we can jinx it back to where we want it. Now I think we are asking for hard cold rain all night w/ 7' rollers from the south. May have to grab a launch spot and try it on the big boat! j/k See ya out there tongue.gif

On weather.com, for the 10-day forcast they now have rain Friday through Sunday with the wind out of the East around 7-10 mph. Shouldn't be too bad.

If its really nice the weekend before opener it will be crappy on opener. I only know this from past experiences.

besides it doesn't matter what the weather is I'll be out fishing somewhere.

Well it is looking like another wet opener. The good news is that the lakes need it desperately.

All you need to say is Opener Weather. That is explination enough. It will be cold, windy, cloudy, with a "chance" of rain. I say "chance" because even if it was sunny, it would rain at some point during the weekend because mother nature has a sick sense of humor.

Wind predictions @ accuweather for Isle...

Saturday - East winds 7MPH - Gusting to 12...

Sunday - Southeast winds 17MPH - Gusting to 28...

It's obvious a cold front is going to start coming through late Friday and run the full weekend (what's new?)...

I checked 8 towns spread around the State. They all call for strong winds and gusts NE to SE through the weekend.

Another typical Minnesota fishing opener...

I don't trust or like accuweather. Last sunday, they said it was supposed to be sunny and warm for my town. It was cloudy the whole day and it rained in the morning.

I always use weather.com You just key in a city. Malmo for example. It lists a detailed forecast usually a few days out, including wind. Hope this helps . It even shows hour by hour a day or two out. cool.gif

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
