Lunar Eclipse

2 posts in this topic

I went out fishing on Wednesday to a spot that had been producing well and on a consistent basis just days and even weeks before. I sat there for quite awhile and didn't even mark a fish. My buddy and I decided to drill a decent amount of holes around the area with a hand auger, as not to spook any fish. We couldn't find them anywhere in the vicinity so we hit up a few other areas of the lake that had also previously been producing and couldn't find fish anywhere! We nearly swiss cheesed up the whole lake! There really wasn't a dramatic change in temperature or any other factors that I can think of. Could this have been because of the lunar eclipse?? Did anyone else get anything on Wednesday evening? Please tell me it's not because I'm a horrible fisherman!

It's not because you're a horrible fisherman. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

But the eclipse likely had no impact on fishing.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
