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

Saw one fish cruising shallow on Forest but nothing else the rest of the night. Saw quite a few others throwing big blades, not a whole lot caught though.

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.

    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
