What's your perfect weather day?

Recommended Posts

What is your perfect weather day for fishing? Do you have a weather day where you drop everything to get on the water? Mine is a warm. Humid afternoon right before rain. When you are on the water and it is dead calm looking like glass that is the time that I look for a good top water bite for Northerners and of course bass. Right up to when it starts to rain although I have had more then a few times where the threat of rain is there and it goes right by or around you with out a drop. Some great fishing then.

My perfect day of fishing is any day on the water! But there are times better than others and those times are when the sun is out or partly sunny and the temps are in the 80's with no humidity and a slight breeze! That humidity stuff kills me!

As others have said, any day is good. Having said that, my favorite is a humid, overcast, and calm, perhaps a very light rain. If the conditions are like that, it's very tough to be at work.

To me the overcast is a big one. I truly hate the sun beating down on me when fishing, maybe that's the real reason I enjoy night fishing the kitties.

I like hot humid days with scattered storms. It just gives me a thrill. There is a sense of urgency in the fishing - especially when you hear that distant rumble of thunder and you can smell the moisture coming with the rain.

      The article "The skinny on bulls" is spot on! I am going to briefly add a couple points that may help understand this bite. First, the north end/side is better than the rest of the lake, If all other conditions are equal. Second, muddy bottom is king, and I think I can explain why and exactly what to look for. Once the edges of the lake melt away the connecting ice and the snow has melted away the ice will typically rise/float up. The pencil reeds are mentioned as being prime structure but they actually provide very little cover under the ice. What they do provide is bugs that get dislodged when the reeds are pulled up with the floating sheet of ice and the rootball pulls out of the mud. Those bugs/invertabrates then rise to the bottom of the ice, providing an easy meal for panfish. When I am fishing this pattern I drill holes all over the emergent reed patch with my 10" blade. This will provide a nice "window" and will they rarely freeze up this time of year, in fact some will probably get larger as warm surface water goes through them. Then you won't need anything but a rod to fish the next day. I will generally hop from hole to hole dropping my presentation just a foot or maybe two under the ice, give it a few shakes while watching for incoming fish and after a minute or usually less, I move to the next hole and repeat. Man, have I caught some nice fish with this pattern!! I generally leave the vexilar, portable and auger at home once holes are drilled. Things that I do bring are a rod or two with 6-8 pound test, Waxworms or gulp, a bucket and a 14'-16' 2x12 plank to get out to the walkable ice. If you haven't read the article on the home page yet, you should, since this is just an added supplement to that well timed article. Stay safe and good luck. Keeping the 8"-9" gills and 10"-12" crappie to eat and the larger ones to spread the superior genetics will result in larger fish each year. See you out there!😉🎣

      16 foot Lowe Roughneck modified V hull for sale. Bought new in 2016. Has the optional floor and casting deck installed as well as a gun box. Powered by a 25hp Mercury fourstroke on the back and a 55lb Minnkota powerdrive bow mount trolling motor. Only reason I’m looking to sell it is because I’m upgrading to a larger full time fishing boat. This boat has been used primarily fishing but has seen time both duck hunting and bowfishing. Asking $8500 or best offer. Email to [email protected] works best for starting the conversation.

      There is a crust cret jigs but the side by side was moving around well. The access is getting soft Baxter would be easier on and off. I think you come in from the west side of blue so you would be ok. The ice was around 24-30 inches
