Depends on the lake. There are alot of factors that contribute to success in both scenarios. Personally, I have never had much luck morning fishing. Most success has been toward evening. I've even had good luck at high noon on some lakes. Weird...

I'm a morning guy, in the summer I'm generally on the water by 6am, clients by 7am, fish shortly thereafter with any luck, evenings tend to bring out the guys who have been drinking all day..Paul

I like the early morning b/c more people fish late at night than in the early morn.

Any time you can be out on the lake and not stuck at home is a good time to be fishing if you ask me.

Definately afternoon into evening! It is one of my favorite past times and I want to enjoy it. I don't want to get up in the middle of the night, get everything ready and make the drive in the dark, so you can be ready to fish at the bewitching hour.

I want to be rested, take my time getting everything ready, make sure I don't forget, or break anything in a rush to get going.

If a problem occurs in the dark, it is usually amplified over what it would be in the light.

I want to do a little sight seeing on the way up, maybe see a daytime fox, or coyote,
a couple of raptors, enjoy the winter day.

When you get to the lake, you have time to do some recon, do a little hunting on the ice and be settled into your game plan, by the time bite time rolls around.

For me, it is all part of the experience, I believe it takes a little piece of each phase, to make up the whole! For me it is definately evening.

Let me add on to my previous post. During the hard water I like the dusk bite, but during the open water the early morning is great! drowned minnow got me thinking about the sounds and the way the early morning feels when you head down to the dock and head out onto the lake smile.gif

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

i agree, soft water is a definate morning bite, and alot of the time an evening bite as well, but on the frozen side of things the afternoon and dusk bite seem to be the ticket.

    • It's been around for at least 30 years.....    
    • Yeah, that is awesome!  I hope the guy chokes down his humble pie and realizes what a gift you and your son are willing to give him!
    • Never heard of the stuff.  English Muffin....Toasting Bread?  I was wondering if you really made French toast with round English muffins? 😵
    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around.
