I was wondering if we are experiencing any change in the water temps on the big pond since we are having cooler night temps. What is everyone getting for temps out there? Won’t be long before the big bite is on!

We fished the south and the south east end of the lake and the temps were 71 in 18ft of water and 74 in the shallow weedlines. This was yesterday...

Seems like a VERY slow bite right now...

73.6 on the north end and 71.4 on the west side yesterday. Two weeks ago it was around 68.

i wonder what the difference is on one side versus the other when the wind is blowing? its got to be warmer down wind, pushing the warmer water on top. likewise, the cooler water is being displaced deeper the other direction.

Going up soon and wondering if the temps have dropped below 60. The warming weather and rain isn't helping that much I am sure. Thanks for the reports.

What do you guys use to measure water temp? (Besides an underwater camera?)

Most sonar ducers have temp gauges on them.

Oh yeah, I guess I should have mentioned I wanted to take the temperature at different depths.

Sorry, bit narrow minded on my part. From my understanding, they have a few different things that have a temp. probe on the end of a cable and just drop it down to the desird depth. Thing about Mille Lacs is, water temp doesnt' vary very much. Since there is no thermocline and the wind stirs the whole lake up, the water stays pretty well distributed.

i have one of those temp/color gizmo thingies but its not working...ive never used it. got it as part of a trade for a 35mm cannon camera and underwater housing with strobes. if someone thinks they might be able to fix and use it, i will trade it for a new fishing friend. it probably has 60' or so of cord? i have no idea. its supposed to tell you what color is best too. only one of the features works according to the guy i got it from.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
