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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
