Fishing factors

Recommended Posts

I know, I know... this is such a basic question. The reason I ask is because I am going to try to put together a quick reference cheat sheet. The factors I have are:

Wind

Water Color

Cold Front?

Cloud Cover

Season

Water Temp

Bio-cycle

Cover

Structure

Forage

Please indulge me. Am I forgetting anything?

Wow that log is really cool. This site never ceases to amaze me. INCREDIBLE JOB GLENN! What I am actually looking into is if there is a way to create a computer program to spit out recommended baits for a given set of conditions.  8)

There may be something in links and Bass fishing software. I haven't looked through all of that. I found one or two that I think I bookmarked at one time. They weren't really programs but a series of questions and then gave a suggestion of lure type, color, ect. I am not sure if they are still on here I have redone my system several times since then. I will post address if I find them.

Here is one it isn't very specific and I am not sure any lakes that you fish are listed.  I have never tried it.  But it may give you some ideas when programming yours.

Just a thought.  If this information is for record purposes, wouldn't the time of day be a factor, regarding early spring fishing.  The reason I say this is the water will typically increase 5-8 deg. throughout the day and this temp increase will move bass up to shallower areas.  If you record the time of day, you should be able to predict when the temp causes the move and what time is most productive on the water....

Well to me that might be a temp factor instead of a time thing. I understand what you are saying, but time is not a factor when the water is warm early in the day and then a serious cold front comes in and drastically changes the water temp in the mid day. You use topwaters in the morning during the summer because there is not a lot of light and the water temp is cooler, not because they heard a rooster crow.
