Wind, winter

Danish inshore fishing

By Martin Joergensen

<<< Autumn | Spring >>>

Winter means cold weather and cold water. As the air will mostly be colder than the water (i.e. freezing) the surface water will be cloder than the bottom water. Also water is heavier at 4 deg. Centigrade than it is at the freezin point (0 deg. Centigrade) and hence the warmer water will sink. Wind from the shore will blow away the colder surface water and bring in warmer water from the deeper parts, and the fish will follow.
But please notice that the shallow water will warm up on sunny early spring days which makes it warmer than the deep water. On these days a light on shore wind or no wind at all will mean better fishing.

Conclusion: A light off shore wind is generally best in the winter.
