Re: porpoising musky
The porpoising fish rarely ever follow, I can remember it happening twice. But I too am guilty of attempting lol. My guess would be that you guys accidently hooked it.
I've only seen one ever attempt to strike, and it was blind in one eye and probably couldn't turn down a meal. Tigers are the only ones that seem to swim with there head out of the water for distances. The pures typically come up and then tail wag back down pretty quick. My guess is that they are regulating their air bladder in anticipation of feeding later in shallower water. But that is just my theory. Saw the same thing on the water this weekend, and the morning bite for us was nearly non-existent with the moon in the sky.
There is always a season!
