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???

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.

      Well i will dissent a little, of course having more motor than nessessary doesn't hurt. I have fished the spring nearly every year with a 55 or 65 lb thrust bowmount.  Only once did i have difficulties, it was rolling down stream, so i used the outboard, still sucked, got very wet. I have fish the river a hand full of times without a trolling motor and have still fone extremely well.
