    Similar to my other post about air pressure, I have heard that moon phase can have an impact on lake trout fishing. I am curious what people have found and what your opinions are.

    Take it for what's it's worth, but I know one of my best laker fishing days was the morning after a full
    moon. Bluebird day, just gorgeous. Landed 6 I think, all good size.

    seems that full moons are always good. Truthfully i dont even pay attention to what the moon or pressure is doing. As long as its warmer the -40 and have nothing going on during a weekend we will go up there. Fishing in the shack is better then sitting on the recliner at home (most of the time)
    I will never be a "Prostaffer" its not that I am not good enough
    but its because I refuse to pimp products for free.

    It don't get any truer than that statement right there bro. 100% agree.

    This answer is given to this same question every year and I always get a chuckle.
