Wed-Thu Big Fish Watch

Recommended Posts

copterjohn

I won't be able to make it up, but it appears Wed-Thu could be big fish days in the area. On Wednesday, a fairly strong and deepening low will spin up in Canada and trail a front into the Red River Valley. Surface winds will be aligned s/sw with the front, which means it won't push east very quickly. The front will move through or be very near the DL area by late day Wednesday, but basically become stationary as a very strong impulse develops to the sw, serving as an anchor. It would appear the front could wobble in the area through late Thursday or even Friday morning. We saw this earlier in August and had three crazy days in a row, but also some severe weather in the lakes area...so keep an eye out and carry your NOAA weather radio on Thursday.

I noticed that as well. Could be really good.

Us operational meteorologists usually consider the long range stuff voodoo meteorology, but the long range climate dudes are forecasting a 30 percent likelihood of above normal temperatures for MN for the Dec-Feb time period. This will be updated next week (once monthly toward mid month)

We had 2 boats trolling plugs last night on the 2 best spots on this particular lake (a lake I've fished for over 20 years) from 7-9:30pm, and all we got was 1 walleye. And this lake is known for an evening plug trolling bite. Sorry to rain on your forcast.... frown.gif

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
