tips for fishing on a rainy day

Recommended Posts

Put on raingear and keep going.  Also, make sure to put your hood up or it will fill with water.  Leared the the hard way.

You may want to beat the banks as well.

Rain, sleet and snow. Fished them all.

Great fishing in the rain.

So you get a little wet?  The fish are wet and they don't complain.

Other than for lightning, fishing in the rain can be extremely productive.

I remember as a kid in Louisiana fishing on the bank of a lagoon just before a strong cold front and a storm came through the area and we caught them on every cast. Bluegills, pearch, bass, catfish. They were going crazy.

We stayed as the storm got to us and the rain started to fall and we continued to catch fish.  

We finally quit when the lightning arrived in the distance and ran home, fast.

So fish in the rain and have fun.  You may be the only guy out there! ;)

Just put on the rain gear and keep on going.  I have also found out the hard way that it is a good idea to keep a scoop in the boat in case of a real heavy downpour.

Just be shure you are not the tallest element in the lake, otherwise your fishing rod turns into a lightning rod.

He ain't kidding.  In some cases a 7 foot carbon fiber rod, with another 15 yards of carbon fiber line, tipped off with a metal object and its all whipping in the wind!!!  ;D ;D

I've been fishing out when it has started to come down cats and dogs.  I got this low cast I've got down good.  Kind of like fishing from one knee, rod tip down.  I've had a couple strikes come close enough to  :o ...remind me of the priest in Caddy Shack.  Stay reasonably safe.
