With all this talk of the fish going I had to try and get out! After having my first child two weeks ago and trying to get many things done around the house my wife let me go wink.gif. I wanted to get out early but was held up. I did end up getting on the lake around 10pm with my brother and his friend (both first timers with the night cranking). After trying a couple spots with only a northern I hit a reef on the east side. We pulled sticks and shads between the three of us and found the shads to be the hot bait with fire tiger and perch being the best. We got all but 2 fish in 6ft of water or less over rocks going around 2 mph. Most fish were just over 22 and we had 1 at about 26. We took 7 home for the table between the three of us and all of them were real nice and fat wink.gif. I think we baoted about 15 or so eyes from 10 pm until about 1:30. The fish were still going when we left but we had to go (some people have to work). This is going to be a great fall and the fun has just begun blush.gif

Sounds like you had a good time. I played hockey last night against Al's team and he was a no show. He must have played hooky instead of hockey.

Water Temp?

A quick question, was thinking of heading up this Sat night the 16th and since it's not the full moon anymore, wondering if the fishing should still be good? You hear a lot of guys saying you need the full moon for the night bite but is this really true or any time in the fall a good time to fish at night? Thanks for the help!

You don't need the full moon, it's a nice convenience and might make the fish more active, but you'll catch plenty of fish at other times too, especially now with the water temp dropping. Any time you could go now would be a good time.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?

      Crazy birds!  Seen 2 jakes that would putt and cut like hens, a little deeper sound of course, and would talk back to me and Abi.  The Tom was absolutely quiet and disinterested.   Been along time since birds were this quiet.  Tough to make moves.  Probably just better to sit tight and wait.   Good luck.
