Cold Front Insurance?

It’s happened to all of us at one time or another. Days before your vacation or derby you hear about the approach of a dreaded cold front. Your stomach drops at the thoughts of battling big waves and strong winds in the pelting rain. But worst of all, these cold fronts usually bring tough fishing conditions.

Fish seam to disappear when the barometer dives. With enough perseverance sometimes you can find them. They’re usually deeper on or near sand, inactive and not feeding. A slow moving jig or spoon jigged on or near the bottom may reveal a fish or two but true to form fishing is tough.

You need cold front fishing insurance. It’s cheap, reliable and will save the day. It won’t stop the rain or wind but it will catch fish when you find them. It’s called the Electron Fish Attractor. Walleye and Pike can’t resist it. Satisfaction Guaranteed!

Tips on finding the fish after the storm.

Even the biggest and baddest Pike and Walleye like to hide when the weather goes bad. They will be deeper than they were a few days ago and usually over a sandy area.

I’ve seen evidence of fish attracted to these sandy areas due to the high electro-magnetic field (EMF) the sand emits. Here they can hide their own electrical field resting virtually electo-receptively invisible.

As well as Walleye and Pike, Whitefish, Pan fish, Lake, Brook, Rainbow and Brown Trout all exhibit the same pattern. This high EMF is called the ambient EMF or the Casimir Effect. These areas generate an EMF generated by the quartz and iron contained in the sand and rock. The higher the amount of quartz and iron the greater the EMF.

When fish enter these areas their electrical field is dominated by the ambient EMF and they virtually disappear. The Electron Fish Attractor presented into this environment generates a higher electrical field than the Casimir effect consequently creating interest and a strike.

Finally! Proof of Magneto-reception in Fish. Cells containing Magnetite found in Rainbow Trout.

Scientists have accepted the theory that migratory species of birds, fish, turtles and mammals are sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field, but this is the first time the precise cell with Magneto-Sensitivity has been located.

A research team at Munich’s Ludwig Max Millions University studied cells from the Olfactory Gland of a Rainbow Trout under a microscope.

A magnet rotated under the microscope stage revealed several cells that were moving with the magnet. These cells were individually studied and found to contain Magnetite, the most magnetic substance on earth.

This is great proof for us and reinforces what we have been theorizing for decades. I can’t see this discovery just involving Rainbow Trout, one could speculate that all members of the trout, char and salmon families of fish could have Magnetite present in their olfactory tissue as well.

This could also hold true for other related species with an adipose fin like Catfish, Piranha, Golden Dorado, Pacu, Tiger fish, White Fish and Grayling. We know these fish are extremely Electroreceptive by of their response to the Electron Fish Attractor Fresh Water 1 low or high TDS.

This discovery in trout could explain how salmon find their way back to their maternal streams from thousands of miles away. To do this they must be able to sense north and south as well as longitude, kind of like a built in GPS.

I won’t be surprised if some day they find magnetite in all fish to some degree. I say this because of fish behaviour I noticed while observing bait fish (Great Lake Shiners) held captive in a stainless steel and glass tank awaiting sale at a bait wholesaler.

Thousands of fish were evenly dispersed in the tank but when a magnet was placed on the steel to hold an order form all the fish reacted instantly by balling up in the opposite end of the tank.  Was this reaction due to the magnetic force or the negative ions created by it, or both? Maybe someday we will find the answer.

Ice Fishing Tip for Landing Trout and White Fish

Having trouble landing Whitefish and Trout through the ice? Try using a landing board.
This is basically a paddle made of ¼ inch plywood that you sand smooth and varnish.
For an 8” hole the paddle should be 5” wide. As for the length well that depends on the thickness of the ice you're fishing on but I would recommend at least 24".  You can even drill a few finger holes at one end to make it easy to hold.

When a fish is coaxed into the hole, slide the paddle board into the hole and wedge it so the fish can’t escape. Then just lift the fish and paddle out of the hole keeping it wedged. Then you can use the board to partially cover the hole to prevent an accidental escape.
With a little practice it’s a great way to land floppy and slippery fish on the ice.

Have fun ice fishing
