Heat and Catching Fish

2 posts in this topic

Gents,

I know the temp effects where the fish can be found but I am looking for ideas on how it effects them biting. We are going to come up soon and get Johnny P to take us for a spin around. I've seen this site effected with updates or so it seems and started wondering. We just want to come up and catch some crappie and a few tasty walleye. Any info would be appreciated.

Normaly the heat will push the bigger fish out deeper where the cooler temps and d.o. (dissolved oxygen) levels are a little more comfy, when this happens you would swear the fish moved to another lake. Feeding almost comes to a stand still during this migration or move, after some time smaller walleye will show up in the spots the big fish used to be and that is a good sign to start looking deeper and cooler for active keeper size walleye.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
