Coming up in a couple days for a week in paradise and saw the temps are supposed to hit mid 80's, with scattered rain...how will the weather effect the walleyes?? Will they move to leeches and crawlers? Minnows?? Everything?? Cant wait to get there!!!

Weather reports have been known to be wrong. A couple of years ago, weather.com was predicting temps in the 90's for the week I was coming up. I went out and bought an air conditioner to bring with me. It turned out that I not only didn't need the air conditioner, my wife and I had to go out and buy some warm clothes and gloves because it got so cold!

No matter what the weather turns out to be, no one can predict exactly how the fish will react to it. Show up, and give it a shot. Find out what they're doing and adjust. The hunt is a big part of fun for me.

Just got back from a houseboat trip and I packed for warmer temps and very rarely took off the sweat shirt and a few times wished I packed the old Carhart wink.gif

I hate to be a nag here everyone, but any updates on the water temps? May be coming up next weekend and wondering for kids swimming, bathing, etc. We have a place in the Frazer Bay/Birch Narrows area

Thanks a bunch

Sorry we didn't have any equipment to measure water temps. I wouldn't have gone swimming myself, still a little cool for my taste, but kids will swim even if their lips are turning blue crazy.gif

Water temps are 65-70. Maybe a little higher in large shallow area. 80 - 85 air temp thru Tues. Have fun

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.

      Ive had the same issue.  I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine.  it has happened twice for me.  Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying.  For the cost,  this stuff should work.  I wonder if they are I-link motors?  Mine is.
