Lunar Eclipse

7 posts in this topic

Wasn't sure where to post this..Since I'm from Janesville and this is SouthCentral MN section, I figured I'd post here.

While I was out that night, I figured why not take shots of the moon. My hands froze to the point where I couldn't feel my fingers anymore. Couldn't even press the shutter button on the camera!

Thought maybe you'd want to see it. Here it is...

Did this lunar have any effect on the fishing during that period? I wasn't on the lake. I was at home taking the shot. So I wasn't sure if that had any effect.

Beautiful picture!

I was out on Madison and if it had any effect it turned them on. My buddy and I limited out on crappies. It was nice: I would go watch the moon for a few minutes, then go and warm up in the fish house!

Thanks. I really thought about going out and fish that night...but I had my kids with. Didn't want to bring them out in the cold. At least I got to bring out my canon out and take photos. It was worth it. COLD! Took me a good half an hour to get the feelings back on my fingers!

Mountain Dew, head to the photo sharing forum and post in there. Lots of other pics and similar shots to yours. That is a great sequence shot and I like the way you added the times. Nice job!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
