    I dug out my old fishing jounal tonight and started reading.

    I found something that amazed me.

    The best catfishing I had in the late fall, late october-late november was when the weather was bad.

    The best days was when there was a weather change, cold rainy, and snow shower days put more fish on the bank for me than nice sunny indian summer days.

    I even kept track of the days I got skunked, most of my skunkings during this time were good weather days, warm days of 60-70 degrees.

    My best fishing was during nasty weather following several days of good weather.

    My guess was it was barameter changes that turned them on, whats your thoughts?

    Glad to hear this... I'm going to be going out this weekend, and was regretting not being able to get out during this nice weather we've been having...

    I was thinking that it's probably the fronts coming thru that fire up the bite... with the front coming thru Friday nite/Saturday morning, maybe it'll put some odds in my favor...

    i have noticed that as well. i noticed that in the fall, just as in spring, warm, "Nice" days were no good for fishing. its usually a sign of high, and/or falling pressure especially if it is windy.

    Thanks for this info. Now maybe I won't feel so nuts for fishing in foul weather.

    My guess is that your guess is dead on. Went to Rocky Fork on sat but only caught six, well below normal, and it was a beautiful day.

    I have always been able to catch more fish in fowl weather than in fare . I think it has to do with the Barometric pressure change. My wife thinks I'm nuts for liking to fish in what she calls duck weather.

    my favorite time to fish is during winter, above any other season by far most of my bigger krill's come at this time, and not only for cats, but multi species. last year my bro and i were at the river and it was snowing so hard you couldnt see out 20 feet from the boat and we were catchin 1 after another, but that wasnt the 1st time, its pretty common in the cold weather months to catch a boat load, if you hit the right spot. my favorite month to fish is jan.
