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

      when i fish for pike or muskie i use 40-50lb braid and an 80# fluoro leader about 12" that I make myself...never had a bite-off and have reused leaders over and over again...oh, and have caught plenty with this set up

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
