Do you love big bluegill?
A Blue Moon happens when there is two full moons that occur in the same month. We're having a Blue Moon tomorrow and Sat. night. I would assume bluegill fishing would be really good.
We went fishing Sunday to a small state owned lake here in Indiana and it appeared to be having an algae bloom. The water was very green in color and it had thousands of air bubbles on the surface in one area of the lake. The bubbles disappeared after about an hour, weird sight though. None the less, I'm thinking of heading out tomorrow afternoon or Saturday AM. What's everyone's take on the Blue Moon.
The Full Moon is normally great fishing on the blackwater rivers of Northeast N.C.......I'll be taking advantage of it tomorrow morning....I try to go around every full moon!
Jeffrey, you're one lucky man because I get a feeling you fish five days a week...lucky dog.
I am grateful Troy.....I push hard for four times a week until October......I've got a very good forecast this Labor Day as well...The way I see it, a day fishing is a free day! Good luck when you get back out there Troy.....
You're right, Leo. Jeffrey has tons, er, thousands of acres of world class bluegill water at his back door and I have 20 private ponds to fish any day of the week.
Jen, well, she's just an outright expert with the fly pole with innovative lure making talents.
Plus....I'm retired! Whooo Hooo!
You know, I have never fished by the moon phases, or the solunar tables at all. I do tend to keep an eye on the water temps, and barometric pressure however.
I paid attention to moon phases early in my angling career, but as I got older and into more 'stuff' I just had to go when I had the chance to go. Occasionally, I'll try to hit it on a full or new moon phase. I especially watch and try to time it if I am fishing for hickory or American shad for those spring time runs, of for the yellow perch spawn in tidal waters of the upper Chesapeake Bay area.
Like Tony, I tend to base more on frontal passages and water temperatures.
I LOVE the FULL MOON fish!!!!!! I however like to go just before sundown, and fish till the MOON is overhead!!!!! The water I fish is extremely clear and the fish come up for BUG!!!!!!!! Best thing about that is I have the LAKE TO MYSELF!!!!!! :-)
