    In the PI post some guys mention a slow bite yesterday on various bodies of water in two different states. The solunar calendar in Ohio G&F mag shows this weekend being poor fishing. Does anyone use these calendars seriously? I never paid much attention to them, should I start doing so?

    Bronzeback is dead on!! I'll add that I do pay attention to the GPS activity tables and try to be in a "good" spot when that hour arrives. It doesn't always work but you will see more activity from the Gulls and other animals.
    It's an "edge" if there is such a thing. As far as there being good days well some are better some are worse but they gotta eat sometime. I don't know how long it takes a fish to digest a meal and need more but I would imagine that the cooler the water the slower the metabolism which would affect digestion.

  4. i was ice fishing and had a very slow start---at 2 pm all the gills turned on and we caught fish for about an hour----when i got home i checked the tables and found it was a minor feeding period at 2pm----in saltwater , the tides play a huge roll in when you fish---

    it might be all connected but

    like bronzeback said-----"i fish when i can fish"
