Cold Water Impacts Fish Appetite

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

coldwaterSince fish are cold-blooded critters, water temperatures influence feeding habits.  As they warm-up in the spring, appetites and digestion rates increase.  By April, they’re entering the peak of season activity.  These fluctuating metabolic rates determine how fast the last meal will be digested how soon they seek another.

Bass, for instance, prefer temps in the 65 to 75 degree range.  Colder levels turn blood flow to the consistency of motor oil.  When it surpasses 85, they get grumpy and heat stressed.  Researchers estimate the metabolic rate of bass declines approximately one-third with every 18-degree drop in body temperature.  A meal consumed in two or three days at 70 degrees may take four or five days at 60 degrees.

As temps drop, functions of the nervous system decline.  From 60 to 50 degrees, they experience more sluggish symptoms.  By 45 degrees, they school in deeper, warmer zones.  The adjacent photo of a depth finder was taken Feb. 28.  Surface temp is near 52 degrees.  Note how fish are stacked in the 15-foot zone.  On this lake, such patterns are noted only this time of year.  Respiration rates here may be one breath per minute.  They can’t swim fast or far before tiring.  At this stage, a meal may last one month.  During winter, you may observe red coloration inside the mouth.

Wet a hook every opportunity through Thanksgiving. Don’t be left out when campfire conversations turn to fishing stories.

When to stop feeding fish in the fall

Fall fish feeding

Fall fish feeding

Are you wondering when to stop feeding fish this fall?  The most accurate source for answering that question is—the fish.

As water temps drop below 70, a fish’s cold-blooded body transitions to winter.  During summer months, they should consume a five-second-feeder spin in 10 minutes.  By early November, that same amount may take 15 or 20 minutes.  Their darting, swirling flashes soon appear in slow motion.  Near Thanksgiving, you may notice leftover pellets on the surface when fish stop eating.  That’s your sign!  They may randomly nibble a few bites after successive, warm days, but it will be short lived.  Place leftover food in a sealed container.  Keep batteries charged during the winter.

How are you going to fill the void of those memorable feeding periods?  Contact friends and ask them to call when disposing of Christmas trees.  The most thoughtful thing you can do for your bluegill buddies is improve their habitat.  When they resume spawning next spring, fry will need protective cover to survive predation and contribute new generations among the food chain.  Bundle and weight four to five trees per surface acre.  Sink them near spawning beds at depths that will remain covered when water levels drop during summer.  If you prefer artificial attractors for more snag-free angling, we’re dealers for several great models.  Is your calendar busy as the holidays and New Year’s approach?  We’ll install them.
