enjoyed the moon the last two nights

Recommended Posts

been out enjoying the beautiful moon the last two nights, and there were a few meteors thrown in last night to boot.  too knickmeyer fishing on monday night and taylor for his last trip before he is back to college.

on monday, the bite was pretty good, but knickmeyer was not feeling too well and left all the catching to me.  ended up with 12 keepers, and what i discovered was that the fish are making a major depth change.  caught most everything 25 ft. deep.  caught them on the same three baits, 3/4 GrassJig, 1 oz. Elite Mega Blade, and 1 oz. Elite Black Widow.  still had to have lots of bait in the area, and the bait is still coming up close to the surface after dark.  really seeing more evidence of a thermocline beginning to form.

tuesday night we really put the hammer on them.  over 20 keepers, with most being of the brown variety and nice ones.  same three lures, but the big wobbler really was putting the hurt of them.  taylor caught 3 or 4 on a naked 3/4 GrassJig head with a rage craw.  we caught a good bulk of them off one spot.  it was about the only place we could find any breeze at all.  had some idiot in a big boat dang near run over us while fishing that spot.  i should have bounced that big wobbler off his head while he went by.  got water in the boat from his wake.  had we not been just railing them at the time, i would have picked the trolling motor up and run him down to get his boat number.  what the HELL is wrong with people????  rant over.

anyway, it has been fun getting out to enjoy the big moon.

Yeah it's been real pretty the last couple of nights.  Glad you all did well.  As to what's wrong with people..... heck if I know.  Didn't get raised right or something is my only guess, but even that's not 100%.  I've got 2 kids and they are night and day, raised in the same house with the same parents.

I think most people just really have no idea when they are in the wrong while boating, totally oblivious of what common courtesy is.  I had a guy one time come flying up to us right next to one of our 3 dive flags we had out.  He had no clue what he had did wrong until we had a heated discussion, and then he sped off... If your in a boat on Norfork lake and dont know what a dive flag is you are just an idiot

wow!!!!  that is just crazy to do that with divers in the water!!!  another good reason that we need to have to have pass a on the water operators test in the vessel you are going to be driving, and a second one to be allowed to be driving a vessel at night.  when people can not pull up to a dock safely, launch and load their boat, just how safe of a boat operator are they?????  it is just getting way too crazy.

I would be happy to take the operators test if they put that in motion. Sometimes i feel like the young ones that have to take it have more sense than these old guys running around in there pontoons

Grandfathering boat operators based on birth date makes no sense at all to me.  Same way with hunter safety.
