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.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
