Blizzard Bass ...might Be Losing It!

Recommended Posts

Just a quick backdrop ...I am a trucker by trade which makes fishing @ home not always an option ....but I carry a rod in my truck at all times so when opportunity shows good or bad I try to fish... gonna be in central Indiana just north of Indy tomorrow through Sunday afternoon 1/5/2014 ....and have talked my brother into blizzard bassin! (Or so I think his wife might trump all this nonsense) buy he lives near Tipton and we fish as often as I get through ....any ideas aside from the obvious fishing slow and deliberately? We will be from shore side hoping to find a dam tail water in hopes of slightly warmer water or active fish...

Have I completely lost my mind? And of course anyone in the area is more than welcome to join in what we have dubbed the "blizzard classic"

Snow, 20mph winds with wind chills to -18. If you can stand the cold, your biggest problem will be line freezing in the guides. Yeah, I think you might need some psychiatric counseling.

First day I went last year was 11 degrees when I launched the boat, I wouldn't try to go any colder than that, too much hassle trying to keep the guides and reel from icing up.

I happen to live in central Indiana myself. I am intrigued by the idea of fishing in a heavy snow, but I don't know that you could possibly have much success in the conditions they are talking about for us tomorrow. The snow could be fun, but the temps and wind are the problem. Last I heard, they were calling for the high to be between -4 and zero and the low to be between -10 and -14 with windchills to significantly drop temps on top of it all. IF (and that's a big if) you are able to find a spot to cast to that isn't covered in solid ice, I foresee serious problems with keeping your gear and your extremities from freezing over. If you want to do something to boost your bass fishing success that day, stay inside and take inventory of your tackle box or shop for some new lures. Maybe you'd like to start carrying ice fishing gear and a portable shelter with you on the road...
