Full moon...Walleyes snapping???

8 posts in this topic

Well, there is a full moon tonight and it is so bright outside that I should be sitting out in the boat right now slamming some Walleyes! Anybody else have the same idea and actually get out fishing? The heck with work-I am playing hookie and going out tomorrow (Friday) to set some steel to Walleye lips! grin.gif Will post the outcome tomorrow night.

Dude! Hookey? I'm telling the board members! Kidding, of course, and as hard as I know you work to preserve and protect that golf course, I doubt anyone would have a bad word to say if you played hookey for a day. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

This time of year, doubt anyone will miss you on the course. I got too many things to be shooting to worry about fishing for at least 3 more weeks.

Well, Fishing was slow! A front came in about 4:00pm and blew me right off the lake! One snakey northern was all I could muster! Well, maybe tomorrow!

Got up early this morning and was it COLD! My rod tip and line was freezing up like I was ice fishing! Fishing was slow again...one walleye and one northern...and no other bites! I think the lake turnover is having alot to do with lousey fishing right now. Lots of junk it the water and real muddy looking. Fished all depths and all kinds of structure and was marking alot of fish on the locator, but it was deadsville. Anybody have any luck this weekend?

went out to island lake tonight and caught 4 small northerns...no walleyes though. What is normally a good depth to try in late fall? I have just been fishing with big suckers on jigs out of the good old stealth 2000 paddling around wink.gif... Does anyone have any advice for spots somewhat close to the northeast public landing or other ones. Today it was a little to windy to explore to far..had waves crashing over the front of my little boat. hopefully they start biting more soon.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
