Lay Lake snow!!
« on: February 13, 2010, 11:32:40 AM »

Anybody been following the practice on Lay Lake??  Looks like they have been getting snow, extremely cold weather, and not many bites.  Looking at the pictures you can see snow in the boats, anglers bundled up like the Michelin man, and I even noticed the telltale white with red wrap rods in Scroggins boat!  Looks like Boyd got another on his Micro Magic rods!!

Apparently 49 of 50 states had snow on the ground yesterday according to the weather channel.

Ya its not global warming its climate change, Its a never ending cycle. Is it a coincidence that the northern seasons have been mild and down south its been colder all year? I doubt it

I watched the video of a the snow in Alabama on BASS.  I have pick up trucks sitting on the ice in front of my house.  I would gladly fish in a few snow flurries to see open water.

If you research the current situation you will find that the increased temps have led to higher humidity, thus more snow in the current storms

Apparently, Hawaii is the one holdout thought they do get snow each winter on their tallest volcanoes. Climatologists are saying El Nino is the cause for storms hitting the south so hard this winter.

49 states dusted with snow; Hawaii's the holdout
By SETH BORENSTEIN (AP)

Forget red and blue — color America white. There was snow on the ground in 49 states Friday. Hawaii was the holdout.

It was the United States of Snow, thanks to an unusual combination of weather patterns that dusted the U.S., including the skyscrapers of Dallas, the peach trees of Atlanta and the Florida Panhandle, where hurricanes are more common than snowflakes. Read Article

It doesn't take much precipitation to make 1" of snow.  Also, anyone remember 1978?  Also, it seems like every winter, our snowfall varies from a bunch to very little.  I think that some people have hung their hat on the global warming theory and they can come up with an explanation for every weather change and how that is caused by global warming.  I was looking at the high and low temperatures on record for Michigan the other day and it was curious that most of the high records were set in the early 1900's.  How does that work in the scheme of global warming?

I always thought having the Classic in February was a terrible idea. There will always  be a chance of bad weather(SUPRISE) not to mention it eliminates 75% of the country as a venue.

Personally I like that they have the classic this time of year, the tougher the conditions the more likely the cream will rise to the top. That's the way it should be instead of having the classic at the prime time on the best fisheries like most want to see.

Actually the first official Ray Scott BASS tournament was the All American on Beaver Lake in Arkansas 1967, not Alabama. There have been eleven Classics in Alabama though. The next highest state to host the Classic is North Carolina with five Classics.

 But it was founded in Montgomery Alabama at least thats what I think Fishmael was getting at. I do like the classic in Feb but like Team Houston said it does take alot of water out of the picture. If they continue to keep it in the spring we will never see a classic anywhere up north. Thats just to bad since we have some great water in the north. I also think that the tougher the fishing the more you will see the better anglers prevail.

When you are in any contest you should work as if there whereto the very last minute a chance to loose it.

Cold nasty weather does not make the cream rise to the top. It just makes all the anglers miserable while trying to keep their hands warm. I still think it should be held in July, August or sept. Fish will be shallow and deep with multiple patterns working.

Yes, I meant Alabama was where BASS was founded, and so there has been a natural bent towards holding events there even now that it is owned by ESPN.  I also feel that there is a lot of great water up north that I would like to see the Classic held on.  But as long as the Classic starts the Elite series schedule, it will not happen.  Those 250's don't get going very well on ice.

there is a heightened risk of a lot of dead fish if they hold it in the south during that time.
