20190319-Fished a local lake and timed the drive time and long walk to a decent spot that looked good on the map… if it looked good to me on the contour map it looks good to everyone… once at waypoints the spots looked like a war zone!...

Drilled the first holes right at the Major.Period start (should have got there earlier)… almost immediately started getting hits on the first three holes… fish were active but small. The action only lasted about a half hour during this 3 hr long Major.Period… I slowly started making my way back to the launch.

Very disappointed in the activity levels I experience during the Major.Period

My initial intentions was to only fish the Major.Period. but at the last minute decided to fish the 3 hour Lull.Period thru and explore more areas and probably fish the Minor.Period till dusk. Hoping to pick up on a fish here or there. The Bite during the Lull.Period never happened.

At most of the time of the Minor.Period I had a rough time even finding sniffers to look at my bait… very brutal.

During summer peak periods with water temps in the upper 70’s-low 80s… fish’s metabolisms are jacked. Unexpected Lull.Period bites will most often occur.

Once the Minor.Period started I was on a new spot in 25’ fish started to fill the screen in the bottom third of the water column. The bite increased at a pace with many small fish B.Gill/perch with a few good ones in the mix… lost a good class fish at the hole viewing it’s profile before it departed.

The bite was longer than I experienced at the Major.Period hours earlier..

I forgot to spring forward on my sonar clock and lost track of time for a bit.

I checked the sonar app “Fishing Points” for an end time on the solunar end for the Minor.Period when the bite waned to a complete stall… the time I recorded on the app was an exact match with the current time… 19:06

As I packed up and left I looked at the eastern skyline at the near full moon rising and gave a little nod.

So at the end of the day I was greatly disappointed at the catch rate during the Major.Period… I was glad I roughed it out thru the Lull.Period to fish the double trigger Minor.Period/Sunset.

Possibly a follow up video…

We are excited about the first day of spring but have to wait out a major coastal storm that promises winds up to 40 knots and it will disrupt our water levels a bit which forces fish to adjust ...........but we are poised to get mom back on the fish before her visit ends ........
