Broke ice at the launch and fished from 9:30 to 3:00 pm. A few bits no takers. Marked A LOT of bait balls and clumps of fish. Fished 8ft to 27ft. Bait balls and clumps were deep, middle and shallow. At least it was a day on the water.
MOON PHASE (28%)
46° - 50° F
Finally managed to make it out for few hours this afternoon and it proved to be a fun day on Pierce.
i hooked into three (3) muskies this afternoon, two of them came unbuttoned due to the drag either being set too tight or too loose. The third time was a charm and managed to catch and release one at 38" - 14lb. In addition, I caught several 1-2 pound stripers (also released).
I want to give a shout out to Randy Price who I had the pleasure of meeting in early October.
