Tell Me What is Your Favorite Fishing Weather

Recommended Posts

I'm curious..........

What is everyone's favorite time to fish, rain, drizzle, over cast, sunny, fall, spring, summer??????? When do you find your best time is??? Night, morning, and at different times where do you fish, middle of the pond, bay etc..... or shallows etc........

Mine:

I like an over cast day, middle of the day I tend to fish further from the banks and as evening hits I get closer to the shore near trees etc.........

all day, any day, any weather... ;)

if i had to choose...i'd say, slightly overcast, mid 60's in the fall, slight breeze out of the south.  Starting shallow in the morning with top water, moveing out in the mid day for cranks or working plastics along the weedline, then back shallow in the evening.

My all time favorite is a warm, clear summer night. I enjoy fishing lakes but my heart belongs to the river. I try and plan my fishing around the full and new moon cycles. I will however, go whenever I can.

overcast day about 75 degrees, water temp about 60-65.  Fish on the cruise and me throwing a senko in the shallows sight fishing. Nothing gets better then that.

RIGHT AT DAYBREAK, WARM SUMMER MORNING DEAD CALM, LITTLE FOG RISING FROM THE WATER.  JUST ME AND MY BAJA DRIFTING AROUND ANCHOR BAY WITH A CRANKING ROD IN MY HAND.

THAT'S HEAVEN!!!!

 My favorite time to fish would be anytime, no matter if it is hot, cold, wet, dry, snowing, raining, hailing, etc etc...   I am dead set on making it into the ranks of the pro bass fishermen, who fish in the Elite series.  I fish when ever I can, and I watch the weather very closely.  I then chart out conditions such as water conditions, barometer, atmospheric conditions, and a few secret bits of information.  Then I chart what I caught, how big it was, the retreive used, how deep I was fishing, etc..  When I have several years put together, I figure I can go back over the logs, and compile a list of lures that work best for the biggest bass, during the proper conditions, if that makes sense.  Fishing is best IMO, on a warm day, lots of clouds, and a water temperature of around 67-70 fegrees.  But really I love fishing at anytime of the day or night.  :)

Nov-Dec snow showers.  Funny to see the looks on the residents faces as they peer out from their cozy living rooms, giving us the thumbs up and shaking their heads.

The gods always seem to reward endurance.

Enjoy about anytime as long as it is not BLAZING hot with 90% humidity which is the typical summer day around here - but doesn't stop me.  Favorite would have to be early, cool crisp fall mornings, but, seem to be most successful in the early evenings when it starts cooling off.

I like late afternoon/early evening.  plenty of cloud cover, but not totally overcast.  Sun hanging low in the sky casting long shadows.  Slight breeze.  AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH  Heaven

I might be weird, but am I the only one who finds great enjoyment and solitude while fishing during a light rain or drizzle?  Its so relaxing and calming to feel...I can't totally describe it...(I naturally love the sound and smell of rain, especially in the summer) but I just feel so content when I'm fishing those conditions.  The sound of the drops hitting my waterproof jacket, the quietness from most everyone else being inside and all the little creatures taking cover to stay dry, I just feel so in tune to the water I'm fishing during that time.  It might not be my most "favorite" for production(although it does produce fairly well and regularly for me), but it is on the top of the list of sentimental favorites along with the good ole "crack a dawn" and dusk on a beautiful lake.

An overcast mid April morning about 65 degrees I know this sounds crazy but I also like fishing when it is raining so hard that you can't see 10 ft in front of you

i honestly have no favorite  fishing weather. i love to fish when it's 105 degrees and when it's 35 degrees. when it's super hot i get sunburned and bugs bite me and when it's really cold i get windburned and ice builds up in my guides. as long as the water isn't dried up or frozen i'm out there slinging a lure. it seems like those are the two times of the year that you'll run into the fewest people fishing around you. like the old saying goes "a bad day of fishing beats a good day of work".

Dead of winter when yo gatta dip your pole to melt enough ice to reel, and the dead of summer when the sweat is runnin' straight down. DEEP main lake structure with ultra finnesse gear or super sized jig and crankin gear

My favorite conditions are  plenty of cloud cover to completely overcast skies early in the morning or late in the evening, air temperatures in the 70s, and water temps in the 60s.  But fishing at any other time is not bad either.

I love fishing in a light drizzle in late winter / early spring. Why? Its sooo darned cold nobody else is around and you have the whole water to yourself   8-)  All I have to do is overcome fear of losing my fingers to frostbite.  Can't wait for May.....

Me too.  Couldn't have said it better myself.

I like fishing at around three in the afternoon when a light rain starts in the summer. The bass start killing my topwater popper. I also like fishing the evenings in fall, especially rivers when everything is calm.

I love to fish in that rain where its so light that you do no feel a drop on your body yet you see the entire lake having raindrops everywhere and know they arent bugs, when that light rain begins the fishing qulaity zooms upward
