Default Afternoons on the Miss?





We are considering heading over to the Mississippi to hunt this weekend and can't go in the morning. I really don't want to try and find a spot in the dark without scouting a little anyway. Is there any afternoon movement at all or is it just a morning deal? I have fished all up and down the river so I know my way around some just never hunted it.

I would say your better off going in the day light if your not sure of a decent hunting spot. Everytime I have tried something completly new in the middle of the night on the sippi, I generally end up in a garbage spot. Its amazing what day light can show you that a spotlight can't. There are quite a number of people that don't even go out until most are coming in or are in from the morning hunt. I have had good success in the afternoon, plus you can better determine your spot for the following morn

Pool 11. I was over on the early opener but I was fishing a tournament and not paying close enough attention to areas I might hunt.

Ya I wouldn't be much help then. I am way south of you. I know around our pool we havent had much luck in the afternoon. Which doesn't mean u cant find them out coming back after feeding. Our spot is hard due to the refugee is right where they head lol. Good luck and stay safe
