Cold Fronts

Recommended Posts

Hey Guts, what's this cold front gonna do to fishing. I have heard/read that fronts don't have much effect on walleyes just that they don't like thunder bumpers. At least the rain has stopped - for now. We might try Black Duck this evening anyway.

In my experience, cold fronts give you a good excuse for not having a good day.
Seriously though, I believe it really effects the shallow water fish on its initial onset.

Generally if you go a little deeper, slow up the presentation you can fair well, seems to me that a jig and minnow work best immediately after a frontal change. Once the front is stationary, go back to your normal offering and presentation.

This front follows a lot of rain and wind, both of which stir things up alot, kicking up lots of natural feed, once again in the shallows, one more reason to go deeper, but stay on the windswept side of the reefs or islands. LOL, guts, <}}}}><

Thanks Guts, now all I have to do is figure out the wind ! Seems like it keeps changing on us. Good reason to go to Black Duck - I can just drift around the island and follow the wind wink.gif
We have a cabin reserved for last full week of Sept. Can't wait for that time of year but we still have lots of fun on Kab/Nam during summer. We are usually on the lake at least once a week all summer. With that much time there, I'm still learning lots.

Guts, we fished Black Duck last night, sat through 2 squalls, did not catch any walleyes or crappies but caught plenty of smallies - one was 20.5" long - weighed 5.2 lbs. Also plenty of very large sunnies. had a great time ! Actually my first time on the lake - definately have to give it another look.

Jon, I intend to but will hit Kab this Wed. I am taking off Wed-Sat. maybe hit B.D. on Sat. You are right, we had some squalls come through and turned fishing right off. I'm still confused about what effect weather has on fish. I do know we had a tough time getting a bite after those storms moved through even though it turned into a beautiful evening after. Talked to a guy who was fishing in Ontario just North of us and he nailed em in the same kind of weather ??

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
