Now for the serious question of the day. Im looking for a few guys to give me a serious NO BS assessment of what the PANFISH fishing was like at half moon this last spring and fall. I wont ask about bass and northern because i know there a very large norts and bass in HM.
I see the photos in the galleries showing a lot of average fish being caught but it seems each photo has at least a couple nice perch or a couple decent bull gills or crappies. Is this simply a numbers game where it takes a long time to sort. Or is the size structure starting to materialize? HM is very close to my home and i love to ice fish but ive always avoided HM do to the stunted gills. If things are beginning to climb back and nice panfish are a part of that comeback, id like to be there at the ground floor. Ill take an oath right here and now NOT TO KEEP A SINGLE PANFISH of truly keeper size. I would love to see halfmoon become a solid panfish lake. not perfect im not in LA LA land here. id just like to go down and know there are nice fish to be caught.
Thanks for your time folks. I look forward to the reports you would be willing to share for Half Moon Lake EC for spring summer fall 2015
Stay safe and good fishin!!!
I was just trolling around on th DNR website, stumbled across the stocking report. I see that Walleye were stocked in Halfmoon until 2009, and Rainbow Trout seem to be regularly stocked with the last listed stocking in 2014.
I was just curious if people ever catch any of these species. Granted the lake is not condusive to a breeding population. It would seem that there still should be a few of the walleye left.
Being as the trout have been stocked every year since 2006, they should be there as well and caught regularly.
Just curious, Mitto
Has anyone heard if the lake is going to be treated again this year? If so have they set a date?
