find some cleaner water and throw the jerkbait. Last two days it has produced 10-1 vs other baits for me. As long as your water is above 52 ish you should be good. Afternoons have been much better than mornings too.

I've been popping all kinds of stuff this week. Small bass and gills out of Sunny Lake, some hoss pike out of the river a few days ago, and yanked two small northerns out of the logjam behind the property last evening just messing around with a big streamer. The pike are ultra-aggressive right now. The past two weeks have been some of the best pike fishing I've had in years, this chilly week being no exception. Overcast, cold, windy, drizzle....PIKE TIME! And Bassthumb is right.....all my fish are caught early afternoon-on. I usually find mornings to be a complete waste of time this time of year, especially for pike. Actually, pike fishing in general. I rarely ever hook into them before noon. I reckon they're still hung over from the day before.

Looking at the forecast, I'd head out Sunday for sure. All this cold weather and that slushy sleet/snow/ice/rain we got will keep the water temps low. That'll keep the pike right where they want to be, regardless of what the sky looks like. I think Sunday's sunshine will get some heat back in the water, in the shallows anyways, and get the other fish moving too. Tomorrow could be a wild card either way. I think Sunday is money.

Shorts weather
Been shorts weather since march.

we live in Ohio, dropping water temps don't have as much of an effect on the fishing. modify techniques. All the fish are either pre-spawn or post spawn and have to eat. Let work dictate when and when you don't fish, not the weather. But I do understand why people like nice sunny days. They are great to cast a bobber out and sit in that lawn chair!

Yeah very true, I guess it is April now so the fish are moving around and such

most people don't give fish credit for adaptation to cooler water. very seldom will they shut down completely. especially pike. In the case of pike, they often become less active as the water warms, due to a decrease in oxygen levels.
