READING WEATHER SIGNS (PART 2)

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

Weather change occurs from the top of the atmosphere down, and wind change portends weather change. When you see several layers of clouds in the sky moving in different directions, pay attention. You can see the wind change coming in those clouds. If the wind shifts in a counterclockwise direction in the Northern Hemisphere, bad weather is coming. If you look at the shore and see the leaves on the trees, which tend to grow according to prevailing winds, turning their backs in a gust, the weather is liable to deteriorate. Other signs include the buildup of towering, darkening cumulus clouds, or clouds moving from the east or northeast, or a halo around the moon. Look into the distance. Do faraway objects seem to stand above the horizon? Can you suddenly hear distant sounds very clearly? These signs could mean rain, just as wind from the south with clouds moving from the west, a yellow sunset, or clouds with sharp, clearly define edges are often indicators of high winds in the offing. But look at the bright side. When smoke and cloud bases rise the southerly wind shifts to the west, nature is forecasting clearing weather. And a red sky to the east and clear to the west at sunset means it is likely to stay that way. BASS FISHING ORLANDO FLORIDA,

READING WEATHER SIGNS

Remember the last time you got caught out on the lake in rain? Starting out, it looked like such a nice day, and although you hadn’t checked the weather beforehand, what could happen? You saw a few clouds headed off to the northwest, and a few more higher up that were on their way straight north, but the sun was shining through. On your way to the lake that morning, you probably didn’t stop to notice the static on the AM radio. And you certainly didn’t pay much attention to the way the smoke from that coal-fired power plant was hovering around the same height as the smokestack as it drifted toward the west. The signs of bad weather were all there, but you didn’t see them. So how can you know once you’re out on a lake or river if you’re likely to be chased off the water in a few hours by a thunderstorm? It’s simple: watch the sky.In the Orlando, Kissimmee and Disney area the Central Florida area we watch the weather very closely so we will not have any problems on your fishing trips. Part One OF Two Parts.

Minding The Moon Part Three

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Soft plastics are a great choice, but trolling large minnow-type lures like  .  six-to to seven-inch A.C. shiners or Rapalas can be affective too.This is the  time of the month when the best daily moon-up/moon-down periods occur around noon,and the good visibility makes a realistic, or live bait, approach your best chance for big bass . Generally,on all other fishing days, remain conscious of when the moon is either straight up or straight down. The daily activity periods last a average of two hours each, so slow down and go to the plastic worm, jig,tube lure, soft jerkbait, or any of the other more realistic, finesse presentations. Part three of three thank you, In Orlando, Kissimmee, and Central Florida Area we try to Mind the Moon as much as possible.
