Attracted to rainy weather...

Recommended Posts

Is anyone here like me and when the weather is ruff and rainy really want to go fishing?

I have noticed that when it rains I can't wait to go fishing it's like there is something bout the rain that lets me think I catch a nice bass.

Or maybe I love playing in the rain. :)

its not just u... but my grandad and dad used to always say the fish bite right after it rains or storms.. dont know if its true about bass but it does seem that way for catfishin atleast in small ponds.

That reminds me I had a catfish hit a top water bass bait in the middle of summer out on my pond... to bad the bait wasnt tied to nothing.. friend of mine came over to bass fish and had a ole zebco 30 30 or something and went to cast and it hung up and the line snapped.. i was sitting there watching the bait to see where it was floating to when the big catfish just come up and slowly grabbed and swam away with it.. anyways back on topic. :)

As long as their isn't lightning I love fishing in the rain because...

1) The fish usually become active when its raining

2) Alot of fisherman go home so I have the lake to myself

You got that right!  I love fishing in the rain for that very reason.  As long as there is no lightning.

I love fishing like that!!! I have about 4 layers of clothing and a nice Gore- Tex rainsuit. There is Nothing like fishing in a hard rain and wind, and the cold. Especialy when going 60 miles an hour and the boat is flying over waves and water flying up in to your face.

In the heat of the Summer,the bass at my home lake have gone on a feeding frenzy when it rains.So yes,I do get a wee bit excited when the skies start clouding up!

I was out in the rain fishing today and couldn't get them to hit my worms but I ran out of bullet weights so I fished a Mad Man fluke and got some pretty exciting strikes. Caught about 23 out there today.

From the Fishin Book of Rules:

Rule 6.4.3.67

If in the interest and betterment of the Sport of Fishing, the participant fish are willing and fully committed by virtue of their place, to be wet all of the time, the participating fishermen must be willing and committed to be wet some of the time.
