August full moon

6 posts in this topic

With the full moon being late this month and the cooler weather we have been having what does everyone think about the fishing this week. Will it be the same tatics as the september full moon, or should you search a little deeper. Just want to hear everyones thoughts.

I'm guessing your'e talking about night fishing.

Get out the Shad Raps!!! I would start in the 10-12 foot levels, and work my way into 5 ft.

Colors, firetiger, perch, clown., blue., tennesee shad. gold.

Maybe try size 10 huskiy jerks also. Chrome colors.

It may be a little early, but it gets your blood "pumping" thinking about the Fall Pigs out there. Good luck!!!!

In a typical year...at what point does the infamous "Fall-Bite" get good?

Water temperature is what really drives it. 50 - 55 is when things really start picking up.

You don't have to limit yourself to trolling unless you're dead set on making a bite happen with Shad Raps or whatever. Don't be afraid to try picthin' plastics or slip bobber fishing in and around deeper weed edges or shallow rock piles.

Any full moon phase is a good phase.

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
