Mooneyes

3 posts in this topic

I was fishing with some guys off Trailer Park point looking for walleyes and all we could catch were these silver colord fish. I thought they were Mooneyes but one of the other guys thought they were silver bass.These fish were all over the water column and were biting on small crappie minnows.Any thoughts? confused.gif

They could've been big shad, mooneye, or sheephead. Could've been white bass, but as is usually the case they're never the fish you want them to be. Pretty hard to confuse white bass with any of those other species. 99% sure they were some sort of roughfish.

      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.
