How has the northern fishing been as of late? And what’s the usual size been?
MOON PHASE (75%)
Northerns still biting. Look for complete restrictions next year or the year after on 25 to 35 inch fish. This will bring it back to how it used to be and the bigger northerns will cannibalize all these small stunted ones. Not much else biting as most other fish are on a down cycle (probably because of all the small northerns.)
MOON PHASE (14%)
Tons of small northerns to be had. Keep 5 for each person in the boat. Keep in mind there is no size limit on northerns currently on this lake. The only way for them to grow is for them to get thinned out. Plenty of meat if 2 people catch 5 each. If you don't know how to get the bones out then just take the section on top and the tail section and throw the rest in the garden. Everyone complains about the lack of size but no one will do anything about it. Here is your chance.
