Whitefish After the FULL MOON
« on: February 12, 2020, 09:22:49 pm »
I met and went out with a fellow LSMB member for a post full moon white fish hunt.
Johnnybee23 it was an absolute blast meeting you and sharing a day full of hook sets and white fish.
Johnny had an amazing start to the day landing 3 fish before I even marked 5.  I think he finished his day off with a total of 6 whitefish.   
I had a slow start but Quickly figured out what was needed to go 8 for 11.  It wasn't until I put my camera down that I realized the we had found the infamous rock structure white fish love.    I even watched a large burbot nose and push aside my lure, which was nerve racking and exciting.
I did learn though that retying your knots is essential to see large or aggressive fish.
Check this video out to see why and to see the fish of the day.
Thanks for reading, thanks for watching and tight lines.

It's a helix 5.  I mounted it to a goose neck clamp and she is powered by a dewalt 20v 5.0amh battery.   

I personally love it and think everyone should consider this setup.     The battery lasts an entire day (it only went as low as 17.6v for 9 hrs) powering a light, the graph, and my camera.   Same batteries I use for the drill auger.    I only need the one kind of battery now and it saves HUGE on weight and space.
