Terrible night to be stuck at work until 11.

Getting out on one of my favorite lakes tomorrow though so I'm pretty excited about that, hopefully they're still hungry.

Not quite as good as I was hoping for tonight. Had a high 30s low 40s take a quick swipe at black/nickel single bladed harasser and then got it to follow again on a black mag dawg. All happened right around 9:00. Other than that didn't see a thing.

Swanny,

I was in West Central MN.

Regarding how to start a new "forum", I'm guessing you mean how do you start a new thread. To do that, go back a page from here and click on "New Topic". Give your thread a title and type in the box provided with your questions.

Agreed! I thought tonight had everything set up for a multi fish night.

Sunset and Moonset occurring within 20 minutes of each other and extremely hot temps all day long. Fished 8:30-11:15. Moved 5 fish from 9:00-9:35 and that was the end of it.

I'll be back out first thing in the morning as I have a hunch they will be eating smile

I've seen that pattern on a number of lakes this year, seems to be a feeding window prior to sunset/twilight.

Sunset and moonset times where I was were 9:15 and 9:39. Had fish in the boat at 9:20, 9:24 and 9:28. Unfortunately they weren't muskies. But good action and some nice fish during that window.

Topwater and don't take it off, I like those windows too but all 5 of our fish came from the worst of the major and minors, none correlated to anything, I think those key times set up better once the water temps level off which is a few weeks away, just my 22 years of doin it, but the faith you'll have and the way you'll fish those key times will pay off.

What is a major and minor, is that the same thing as moon over head and moon under foot? I've always heard those things but never could figure out what the heck they meant.

I didn't even get out, had some pool issues that needed tending to...maybe tomorrow.

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
