Warm weather for next weekend!


Smells like fish

Recommended Posts

After -7 here this weekend the next weekend is gonna be 65. How do you guys think the bite will go? Water temps after a few nights at under zero will likely be in the 30’s I’d imagine Thursday or Friday. Who is wanting some bass on the line for New Years?

It’s Christmas Eve but I’m thinking of winding a fishing reel.

I won’t be able to fish, how’s the week after new years look? Wooly mammoth? 

We have a great January ahead. Above normal temps! We might get our rods bent 😁

It won’t be quite that warm here. High 40s low 50s. I am hoping to get out Thursday and Friday on the susky. I do not think the bite will be good. I never seem to do well on unseasonable weather. I am interested to see what the water level will be. Still didn’t peak yet. My guess it will be between 6-7 when I get out.

You would think at least one of those susky brown fish would want to shake the frost and bite something

50's here next weekend, but there'll still be ice on the lakes. A fairly fast stretch of river was half frozen over and completely ice choked yesterday. No fishin, for me. Probably service a few reels.

Same here. We have a deep freeze that won’t thaw until spring. A couple days of 50° weather won’t do anything except open up some fast moving sections of river. But my reels have already been stripped of their line and sent in for servicing.

Ya - our warm-up is only going to be in the mid to upper 30s...won't even affect the ice cover as it'll just re-freeze overnight.

 

Reels have been stripped, there'll be some maintenance later. I don't expect to re-spool until sometime in March at the earliest.

I sure hope! Walleye do tend to show up this time of year as well. They seem to go missing in the susky till it gets cold.

That’s when I do my re-spooling as well. If ice is gone by April 1st I consider it a win. Some of my higher elevation and latitudinal lakes late April or early May is more realistic.

Ya, well my March re-spooling is just the crappie rigs. Bass season doesn't open here until the middle of May, so the bass rigs don't get re-spooled until the beginning of May.

Starting Wednesday & for the next 5-6 days we will be in the low 70s during the day & low 60s at night.

 

Can we say early pre-spawn!

I am thinking about going this coming friday. Now if I can just convince my friend with a bass boat …😉.

I may make a central FLA appearance in the very near future, hopefully i don’t get domed by a frozen iguana

Hey if you come by the Jax. area and you have some time let me know. 

I think the iguanas are down south mostly…

I'm not an envious type of person, but you turned me a light shade of green with that post brother. 😉 GO GET 'EM!!!

That's the silver lining to you guys and gal up there......you can send the reels in for servicing.  

 

I'm trying to build my arsenal back up big enough to where I can send in reels for maintenance without having a huge gap in the starting lineup.

 

I'm not screwing with my OG Steez or an older Calais 100 especially.
