Buoys, water temp, and info

9 posts in this topic

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.

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
