Buoys, water temp, and info

Recommended Posts

HokeyEye

Anyone know when the buoy's are scheduled to start coming out? Thinking about a run next week, and don't want to have my boat posted on the site for landing on a rock! I know one of the guys that is coming has a camera, and that's not a photo I want to be in! shocked.gif

Also wondering what the water temp is down to, and if the lake has started to turn & churn the green stuff again? Thanks for your help.

FROM VNP....

Beginning October 1, 2007 hazard markers and regulatory buoys maintained by Voyageurs National Park will be removed as weather conditions allow. In addition, area lamplighters will begin removing U. S. Coast Guard maintained navigational aids on October 14. Due to low water conditions, boaters are advised to take added precautions while operating on park lakes after these dates.

Can't help w/ the water temps....sorry.

Yikes, sounds like they are going to work on them tomorrow! Let's all pray that the rocks stay on the bottom and don't start to grow.

Thanks.

Hey, Let It Snow, I know the article states the water is low, but when I was at the lake today, the lake is high, quite high as a matter of fact, don't ya think?

I agree witht the water level being up Guts, but who are we to argue with the NPS? wink.gif

What's your thoughts on the water temp?

I was out on saturday and water temp was still 55 degrees. We got a few fish in 22-27 ft. Jig and a minnow was more productive than my silver spinner. Weather is going to play more and more of a role as we get deeper into fall. We fish pretty light stuff and one guy had something hit that pounded his pole three times real good and then cut the fireline. He was bummed! I may go looking for that bigboy next weekend if weather permits!

Water temps said to be around low 50's, I spoke to one of the members of the buoy removal team, and he stated they would not start till next week on the rock markers.

He said they would start on the far end, Crane & Sandpoint and work there way back to Kab and finish up on Kab.

They estimate 3 working days to get them removed.

Bad weather ie; high winds could delay the removal. guts

We are here on the lake now. Temps are 56-58 depending on your location. Markers all appear to be in place. Water seems higher than last year. Someone must be using rusty hooks... fish seem to have a case of lock-jaw!!! Very tough last 3 days.

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.

      I can get to everything except ICE. You guys too?

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.
