I was just kinda pondering about this. When the water is cold like it is right now, but we get a warm front come in(like right now) where the temps come back up into the 50's and sunny days....does that make the fish a little more active, or not? Would the pressure from the front make them go deeper, or would they come up shallower to try to get some warmth from the sun and warmer air? I guess theres probably more things that come into play, but I was just kinda wondering how it worked.

I have found that if the weather stablizes for a few days and the water warms some the baitfish/fish will move to the warmer water. Usually the warmer water is in the creeks and dark colored banks. Try throwing a spider jig on those banks for some largies.

Until i started throwing FNF i used to love to fish days where there was a warming trend and water warmed up a bit. always threw a crankbait up fairly shallow. has some killer days like that on douglas, cherokee, and boone!!

I know, just messin wiff ya




Did ya get that fishfinder wired up?




Yup.
Just gotta finish mounting it tonight. I got lucky and there was already a switched power source and ground pre-wired from the factory(i guess) that was just under the bow access cover(where the TM plug is). Already had the fuse in it and everything. Just gotta finish mounting it tonight to get it to look half-way neat.

It has been my experince that it takes a few days of sun to bring them up to feed. if ya get 3 or 4 days of sun and warmth in a row , i tend to try to fish on the 3rd or 4th day. never pass a chance to go fishn though.

I have found that just 1 or 2 warm days really don't help. It takes 3 or more days before the fish move up and fed good.

it also depends on the nights.If you have 3 or more warm days but the nights are cold and very in temp from night to night it don't help much.but if the nights stay about the same and the days are warm then the fish will pick up and hit better. just what I have seen over the years.and stained water will warm up quicker than clear water will.

What about a week like this week? They're giving temps at least in the 50's all week....except wednesday and thursday nights are supposed be colder, but they're still giving 50's during the day? Looking at this week, when would you guys go fishing if you could pick one day to have some confidence in catching some fish?

All the rain this week will change things,cold and muddy usually don't mix well.

hey bubba, w/ this warm rain occuring this week, the fish should bite pretty well throughout the week.....i would focus on fishing in creek channels, not so much the main lake.....reason for this is the baitfish well migrate toward warmer water which will be in the creeks from the rain.....i would hit any creek channel point i could find about half way back in these creeks.....if the water is stained, try throwing crank baits and jigs....if the creeks stay fairly clear, i would stick with the fly....should be good fishin though, gl and hope this helps!!!
