Good morning fellow shore fisherman, has anyone had any luck finding mooneye at portage? I was thinking of a trip east to find some but just wanted to see if there was a closer alternative for me.

You betcha!! Had two of them earlier this week. Wasn’t familiar with mooneye or goldeye before researching what I caught. Wish I would have measured them now. Pretty sure the one was close to MA, seeing that’s only 14”. Oh well, heading back tomorrow for more!!

So how do you catch them? Crappie rigs with a longer lead on the weight? I've caught them on the red with a worm on a hook hanging about a foot and a half below a bobber. The water at the diversion moves pretty quick to get much bite time that way.
