It was a frenzy! Did the blood moon drive them nuts?

6 posts in this topic

I was out on Madison tonight from about 5:45 to 9:45. The first spot we went to was cold, so about 7 we moved to Church Bar. Holy cow did we hit the mother load. From 7 to 9:30 we pounded the crappies (they only hit on minnows, not waxies at all) in about 10-15 FOW they were at all depths. We had three different jigs but they really seemed to focus on my glow in the dark Northlands jigs. We had three lines down and there were times we had three fish in the house at once. We would have stayed longer but we limited out (2 of us). Did anyone else have a good evening? Think it could be related the the eclipse???

Pretty sure tonight was a full moon. A full moon always means good fishing, but i wouldnt rule out the eclipse

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
