The lakes that I've been fishing are about as unpredictable as catching the coronavirus. One day great, the next stinky. Rising water and now drawdowns have had the fish in funky town. You had better get out today or tomorrow, because the 2nd wave of spawn is fixing to blow up. Full moon is tonight. Some of theses big girls have got to do their thing. Then, it's a 30 degree swing in temps on Thursday. Hi Wed is 93, forecast for Thursday is high of 63 and rain. We gotta catch 'em when they're up, so get out there and practice your social distancing and pull a big female off her bed. Just don't pull her by the hair! bolt

I've always been a skeptic of the whole "moon makes them spawn" deal. Only part of that theory that makes any sense to me is that its bright enough for them to spawn/move up at night, and that's only if the nights are warm enough.

Let's say this does move a big wave of fish up into the shallows. Does that equate to more fish in the boat or just more fish in the shallows? Are they aggressive or are their singularly focused and looking for a mate or bed? I know we're not talking 100% exacts and certainties but I'm curious as to what this means in terms of catching or not catching.


If you can't find em wind em.

During pre-spawn/spawn I have found the large females that are suspending and/or roaming just outside the spawning beds are the most difficult fish in the system to catch. When then full moon cycle beckons them to move up they become discernibly easier to catch. Just my experience.

Tru-dat.There is a window when they have to lock on. That time may vary a lot on how long it takes to release their eggs and either guard or move on, but I have seen it too many times that the full moon helps this along, especially toward the last wave of spawning phase. Just my opinion, though....

I think we are hitting the late stage spawners. But I have noticed more big girls being caught. not necessarily more numbers, but definitely more big girls.


I love everyone

You need to get outta East Fork, dude, and start social distancing like the rest of us. In all the years that I've lived here (20), I've never seen spawn end sooner than the end of April...and it's usually into the first couple of weeks of May. Are you sharing at East Fork?
