Re: Credibility of CDOWs Fishing Reports
Any report to me is a suggestion of where to go. But as for the hot bite, I go by my 'supernatural' senses
What do your "supernatural" senses say about Jackson next Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Well.. I checked in with my "supernatural" senses and it 1st told me to check the weather. --> http://www.weather.com/index.html
And then I looked at the few previous reports on this forum about Jackson.... Folks have been catching fish on and off. "Supernatural" senses then told me the fish are active enough to build some kind of pattern. There has been no reports of folks getting back to back fish, but it's possible. My two buddies went and caught 20 wipers on Rat-L-Traps (blue/silver <-- there's your trend) in one morning during the last two weeks and reported zilch the next morning. One of them, I call my pupil, but I'm his when it comes to highschool street brawls, this guy barely remembers to set the drag and picks some of the strangest "ooh shineys" along with the funniest generic mono-fishing lines. They fished the dam and said the weather was like a hurricane out there. Probably, no one has been at that 'magic' right place and time yet
too recently. If the weather channel is correct, it'll be nice and hot during the days you're going (high 70's and low to mid 80's). But we'll just say we don't know about the weather yet cause everytime you're off from work, well....
Just be at the dam LOL!!!!!
I'm willin' to bet that the 'magic' right place and time occurs almost daily, but just not that many anglers are fortunate enough to hit it.
Dan, you sure aint gonna come home empty handed. Given three days to work that lake, you better not. My "supernatural" senses say pay attention to dawn and dusk. If the wind kicks up badly towards the face of the dam, I'd leave the boat trailored and head to the dam (if you're wiper huntin). Oh, and it doesn't hurt to go catch a small bucket of some lively
crawdads. Even when the tail is ripped off, they still want em fresh sometimes. If ya don't wanna do that, then a bag of mussels will be of insurance. I'm sure you'll have your usual stuff (leeches, crawlers, minnows etc.) and those, especially crawlers, are a must in any situation. You're camping.. Catfish at Jackson can be good sometimes too during evenings and ya don't want to forget that wipers feed at night also.
Sorry, it took me a while to respond.
Good luck to ya,
