Night fishing and the moon

Recommended Posts

I've heard others reports about night fishing and the lunar cycle, but what have all of you out there experienced with regard to what's shaking with the moon and the night bite?
According to the article on the front page it's the 3-4 days before and after the full moon that is the time to be on the water. Is this consistent with others' experience? Why is it that the nights of the full moon may not be the best? I'd think this time is the time to be on the water.

The new moon, not the full moon, provides the best fishing. The full moon gives more visability to the baitfish. The new moon gives the top predators the advantage. This Thursday is a new moon. Take Friday off and muskie fish all Thursday night.

For the last 5 years I have scheduled extra nights on the water during the new/full phases. I am a believer in these times as being top quantity and quality nights to be on the water. Last year on Halloween night(full moon) we had 3 walleyes over 28". With the full moon use large minnow style cranks that the fish can see better in the extra light. On new moon nights I find that rattle style cranks will make a difference.
August 22nd is the next full moon. Looks like I need a 4 day weekend!

    • Fleet farm site has something called brushtox, looks like it is 61% triclopyr.  31 bucks a quart.
    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
