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!

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
