The full moon fishing failures continue to mount. We tried our hand again at fishing under the light of a full moon at Deer Creek in hopes of running our lures into the mouths of a few walleye. Unfortunately, yet expectantly, we failed miserably. We trolled, casted, and drifted jigs all over the reservoir and not one walleye was landed. We washed every lure in our tackle box and fished until 1:00 AM before conceding to failure. Luckily we did have a few “fish on” moments to keep our spirits up, and while catching smallmouth is fun, it was walleye we were after.
I just can’t seem to make it work with these fish called walleye, as I continually chase them with very limited success. But, I will continue to push onward trying new things and hoping at some point to figure it out.
