THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF FISHING
THE BEST WEATHER TO GO FISHING AND CATCH THE MOST FISH
If I tried to explain everything about this subject, it would take days to write and cover a hundred pages. So for that reason we will just cover the bottom line, or my oppinon of the bottom line.
So many things effect the eating habits of the fish, and if you have not studied for months about the weather pattern, the sun, moon, cloud conditions, water temperature, outside temperature, ph levels of the water, and how many weeds are in the lake plus a lot more things effect the way the fish will bite.
We will not cover all of that today, but will cover enough, so you will be able to take a calculated guess and be correct most of the time. Now remember this is not written in stone, but most of the time you will be able to come up with the correct answer.
The best time to fish, is when the fish are most active and feeding, or on their beds. So the best water tempature to fish in would be from 60% to about 75%. WE are talking about the best here so remember that fish will bite in any tempature of water. Of course the best time to catch fish, is when they are on the beds. I will hold my oppinion of that subject for now.
Here are some good signs to look for that will make for a very good fishing day. Try to get on the water and ready to fish, about 6 hours before a storm sets in, and fish as long as you can before the storm hits. BUT MAKE SURE THAT YOU WATCH THE WEATHER AND GIVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TIME TO GET OFF THE WATER AND GET YOUR BOAT unLOADED BEFORE THE STORM HITS. When a storm is coming the clouds will also come with it, and that is another good thing to help catch fish. The clouds will block that bright hot sun and the fish will be more active. And move to shallower water, at these times. Most good fisherman know that the best hours to fish are at first light and at last light. So get up early or stay late to get the fish when they are most active. But once again this is not always true, because of all the other factors that effect the feeding habits.
If the weather drops by 10% over night, and the fish aren't where they were yesterday, go deeper to find them. They won't be far away, just deeper. If a cold front comes in and the temperature drops by 20 degrees, just stay home in bed and forget fishing for about 3 days or until the cloud cover comes in. If you do decide to try it, look for the fish in deeper water where there is a lot of heavy weed cover, and move your bait very SLOWLY. Your best bet well be to use worms, jig bait, or live bait.
If the weather has been cool for a couple of days, and a warm front comes in, GET YOUR POLES AND GET TO THE WATER, this can be the best time to fish. The fish that have had lock jaw will come out of the deep heavy cover and move to the weed beds or to the shallow breaks. These conditions will be your best bet to catch fish. Pick your favorite bait because just about all baits, live or artificle, will work, at these times, just pick the right colors. AND DON'T BE AfAID TO ASK YOUR TACKLE SHOP GUY WHAT THEY ARE BEING Caught ON, He showld tell you the truth, because he wants you to catch fish so you will come back and shop in his store. Also ask other fisherman about their success and get some info from them. Here's to good fishing. Tom Helm
