where's all the Water?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,I just returned from a trip to the Harris Chain,the water there is about 3-4' low which resulted in a pretty disappointing trip,it was really hot and the surface temp was 83,

 so I'm gonna suggest that everybody that fishes these lake bring a gallon of water with them and just dump it over the side(take top off and pour contents of jug into lake). If anybody has a better idea..... ;D

A above average rainy season should do it also,  I think if we recover this year and have a good spawn we should have a BASS BOOM in years to come!!  

Here is some information from NOAA

What the Data Shows.

Looking at more than 50 years of temperature and rainfall data from the Daytona Beach and Orlando airports, the median date for the start of the Wet and Dry Seasons was determined.  Note that the "median" is simply "the middle of the road."  Half of the data is before and half of it is after.

The median date for the beginning of the Rainy Season in Daytona Beach is May 27, while in Orlando it is May 24.

The median date for the beginning of the Dry Season is October 15 for both Daytona Beach and Orlando.

The approximate start of the wet season in Melbourne and Vero Beach is May 23, while the start of the dry season is October 15.

The approximate start of the wet season in Fort Pierce and Stuart is May 22, while the start of the dry season is October 16.

More detailed information about this study can be found at:  www.srh.noaa.gov/mlb/wetdry/WetDrySeason.html.

Several Tropical Storms will do nicely.  The Harris chain has been several feet below average for more than 2 years now.  The new multi-million dollar Hickory Point facility is down to 1 useable ramp (8 new).  The water shed for the Harris Chain is north of I-4 and currently is more than 30" below normal rainfall for the last 2 years.  Maybe a rain dance or two is in order.
