Tis da Season

January 26th, 2014

We are entering the coldest months of the year, shouldn’t be much of a change from the last two months at this rate!  Very little fishable water is present right now, polar vortex has a tight grip on the flowing water.  Lake Superior currently has the most ice coverage it has had in a long time & this winter is currently ranking as the 4th coldest winter in UP history.  This should considerably help lake levels as minimal evaporation will occur this winter.

Winters Grip

A brief warm up in the weather dept this past weekend provided a window for some fishing opportunities here in the Upper Peninsula. Winter is a beautiful time to fish when the weather permits, the river is so different & quiet seeming this time of the year.  Steelhead and Trout are present, persuading them to eat can be a bit more challenging in winter.  Cover the water slowly and feed them something appetizing.

Siberia Anyone?

Yeah, it’s damn cold out.  Virtually zero open water fishing opps at this time with the absurdly cold air mass that seems to be parked for the time being.  I have to say this is prolly the coldest sustained air temps I have ever seen in a winter here in the Upper Peninsula.

Bumble, the abominable snowman has no complaints with the current weather situation…
