Simon Says,

This is a pretty sillly thread on August 3, 2006.

If you don't fish when it's good, why do you think about fishing when it's bad?

I mean really, who cares?

BE scared be very Scared. Its a horrable time of year. You will sharpen all your hooks to the barb your famile will want to sent you to the nut house. You freinds will avoid you like the plage fishing will consume you. The bait monky will fallow you around like a lost dog. you will find your self on a bank in the freezing cold throwing lures in the ice and not know how you got there ;).

Then spring comes and your all better ;D

Ahh mainly cause I have classes during the summer, Organic Chem 2 + Lab shoved into a 4 week timeframe leaves little time to fish =/

and my friends here at the library are wondering what i'd do during the winter time, so i just thought i'd ask everyone else!

I fish all year round.

We have some power plant cooling lakes a few hours from me that never close. So I head out there a few times a month during the winter when I'm not doing shows.

I've heard that guys up north fish for a species that isn't catchable during spring through fall, it's called an Ice fish.  Not sure what they look like but some of those guys actually go out when it's way cold and sit in little houses on top of a frozen lake to catch them.  They must not be big fish, the rods are like 1 foot long and they fish through a little hole they cut in the ice.  It's gotta be a beaach to cast a lure into that little hole every time.

Chug Bug,

I still get to have some fun, too.

We haven't had rain in twenty-seven days and are in our 12th day of 100+ heat indexes (107 today). I'm not thinking about all the issues we face in winter, are you?

Yep, if you have only been fishing "1 time a month" during the best time of year for bass, then I'm not cutting you any slack for asking a silly question about winter fishing. Like I said...

Who cares?

Ahh if you reread my OP it says something to the tune of "this is the first summer where i've been fishing more than once a month" meaning in previous summers I wasn't as crazy into fishing as I am now.

Also i'm only asking because my friends were poking fun at my fishing "obsession" and wondering what I would do when winter comes around. (keep in mind the question came from people who don't normally fish, meaning they aren't thinking about how good the season is now) So I just wanted to know what everyone else did just as something to pass the time!

sorry if I hit a nerve RW! just wanted something to keep my mind off studying orgo for a bit!

Winter is my favorite time to bass fish, that is, just fishing.  Now bedfishing in April is a different story.

The fish aren't pressured as much, and you also have a chance at catching bigger fish.

Buy a Lucky Craft Pointer 78 in Chartruese shad color and just work it R   E    E    A     L       S     L     O       W, you will have fun. :)

Sorry to pile on but calling fishing a couple of times a month an "obsession" is dumb enough that if any of them have touched the distilled goods twice this past month they must be "alcoholics"!

1000 degrees and idiots on "personal watercrafts" and float streams overflowing with more of the drunken louts...... Aaauuurrghhh! This is the WORST time of year for most guys around here.

I love winter. Hunting takes up some time, and I won't talk about 10 pound+ brown trout on the bass boards but I catch more large bass of all three species working the float and fly and suspending jerkbaits during winter than everything else throughout the year combined.

Plus all the fair weather fools are at home watching football, waiting for spring so they can prove they forgot whatever they may have learned about launching a boat from last year, as I wait, for an eternity, for them to get said boat launched.

Besides, to quote John Geirach: "Any jack@#$ can catch fish when it's nice out."

Well i live in wisconsin and the river never freezes over. So when i get the fishing bug in i go to the river and cast around in till I can't fell my hands. I also like to go and find all the bass beds from last year. And they will spawn in the same spot that coming spring.

What??? :-?

Someone asked so they must care. ::)

From what I have read someone just caught the fishing bug and is worried about what they will do this winter when the ice is 2 foot thick on their home lake? Did I read that right? I know I don't like to freeze my /\zz off fishing in the freezing cold winter. ;)

I practice pitching to my sun room, drives the cat's nuts (remember to remove your hooks). :P

I play a lot of Mark Davis Pro Fishing on the PS2.

I also spend a lot more time here, as do others.

I hope for ice out everyday and I load up on all the fishing stuff that is on winter mark down.

I dream about the day ice out happens and I can use my discounted stuff to catch a lunker like I did on the PS2! :-?

Yep, winter sucks.

Man RW, you pounded me on another thread for sounding defensive and you were right...Well it is your time now to take a pounding. As a moderator to go around bashing someones post because he asked a question is the silly thing to me. You should know better dude.

Think of it this way, when it is winter time these same guys up north are going to be talking about summer fishing right?  So it is middle of the summer and someone is talking about winter fishing. I mean c'mon, give the guy a break. geez.

Winter happens to be my favorite time of the year to fish. Of course I do not live up north either. But in Texas and in Florida it is the time to fish as you might hang a double digit at anytime.

To answer the question, its simple, for the ones who don't fish or can't fish due to weather, they get to listen to us, the ones who do fish thru the winter.

Post counts double in the winter.   Don't really know that, just figure you have more time to kill since you can't fish.

Hookem

Matt.

Okay,

I thought about deleting or modifying the post, but I was already getting kicked around, so I left it up.

I think it's silly to talk about winter fishing during the hottest part of the year. If we're just looking ahead to plan a trip, the fall bite is not too far off, but to get all tied up with winter strategies just strikes me as odd. "Who cares?" Well, maybe that comment comes across too strong, so let me restate it this way:

For everyone starting to prepare for winter fishing, we have an entire section of the BassResource Library dedicated to this topic. I think it is comprehensive and I hope you enjoy reading the many articles you will find there. After you peruse those articles, come on back to the Forum and ask all the questions you can think of. We have some very knowledgable members that are anxious to help!
