Full Moon Question

6 posts in this topic

I know it's early to be thinking of next year already, but i was looking at the 2008 lunar calendar.

Next year the full moon falls on October 14th.

I want to schedule some vacation in October next year to hit the pond for 3 consecutive nights and get reservations lined up...so the question is....

Is it going to be better to schedule it around the full moon phase or for later in the month planning on the cooler water temperature.

It seems like everyone is waiting for the full moon this week to come on up...it must be the best of both worlds with the cooler temps and the full moon?

I'd plan on water temps.

I agree. Temps are the key. You will still catch fish , but for example, the best fishing is just starting now for the next couple of weeks.

I was going to go up last night, but elected to go and do some grouse hunting instead!

Wednesday I will get up and runner into evening!

I would love to go back out grouse hunting, but the deer ticks are just way to bad right now!

I hear you on the deer ticks. A couple weeks ago, we must have pulled over 200 off of our lab during our grouse hunt and days after. Hopefully the freezing temps at night will put them too sleep.

Water temperature. The closer to 40, the better.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
