yea a real gully washer coming.

so how are you going to adjust your fishing trips?  you know its going to be 1 front after another.  so what changes are you going to try and combat those effects on your fishing?

I was heading to the cabin to beat the 4th crowd last night, then looked at the forecast up there and decided to cancel. Today was the only day without rain and thunderstorms and that’s not good for river fishing. Good luck up there Teach, catch a bunch and be safe! A friend was up a couple weeks ago and he had a good time. What area are you heading to? Wife and I want to get up there sometime. Hex

Hat’s off to you and your travel endeavors, you’re a true “road warrior”. I thought my monthly runs to the cabin was a pretty good haul(235 mi)! Of course I’ve been going to Michigan for about 60 plus years so probably logged a pretty good number of miles myself. Again good luck and be safe! Hex

Huh! If I were going to fish here I'd make dang sure there was no lightning in the area! Other then that, I'd probably hit the weed edges for gills with 1/32 oz jig with gulp. Early morning I'd throw a popper in pads. If that didn't work I'd use a 1/8 oz spoon and go deep.

Based upon that activity we saw the other night, it seems the low light/nighttime might be a good place to start.  Those panfish seemed really active all night.

thats more like it. lol

  ill start at lakes that have feeder creeks or drainage pipes. doesnt take much inflow to draw fish.  especially after long dry spurts.  the rains will in-flow all kinds of food.  fish will gather in front of these places at the start of the rains.  they peter out quick though, when it gets super muddy and the fish get their fill.  then ill switch to lakes with no feeder creeks or runoff.  they will stay clearer than the other lakes.  lets face it muddy waters that are normally clear make a tuff bite.  yea, in a way im running from it too.  just not traveling far to do it. on the clear water lakes ill run and gun shallows.  fish should stay shallow unless conditions get really nasty.  i run n gun likely spots with beetle spins or float n jig/bait till i find them.

night fishing can stay good, but its still limited to the clear water lakes.  clear water lakes are the only ones ive been able to get night gill action.

as much rain as we are getting it will surly lower the water temp a bit. that can send them away from shore if big change.  last time out we had almost 80* surface temp!  ill bet its closer to 70* next time i get out.
