Do any of you use a thermometer to test how cold the lake water is during the winter months? If so which ones are the best to use?
The absolute reading does not, in my opinion, matter. It is the speed of change that can have an effect. Rapid changes can put fish off. I think this may be down to the effect on the swim bladder and the fish feeling uncomfortable and needing to adjust the bladder to the air pressure. This takes time.Can anyone tell me what are the best times to fish by looking/ reading a barometer as I’ve never really understood this high and low situation might be interesting thanks guys..
