Water temps and levels

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, one week away, can't wait to experience Rainy, I was curious as to the water temps on the lake. Not so much for fishing, but for swimming. I have a bunch of kids along, so I was wondering what the temps were shallow. Also, it sounds like you got the rain needed to get back to full pool, is that accurate. Thanks for all of your info, it makes me feel like I have some starting point. PS: I'm planning on going to One-Stop on the 14th to pick up some bait, maybe I'll bend some ears there as well. smirk.gif

Water is between 65-71 depending on where you are and how the wind is. As far as the lake level, you heard right...it's finally back up to its normal level. Also, more gates wer just opened up in the Seine and at Kettle, so we got some current going again.

Best news I've heard in a while! Coming up end of august and don't really want to smack any rocks (at least not more than usual). We have had so much rain here in Oklahoma most of our best fishing lakes have been closed due to flooding. Makes one anxious for the northland.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
