Water Temps

18 posts in this topic

Havent seen much lately about water temps on Mille Lacs. Just wondering if the temps have dropped much yet with the cold front. Headed up there for the October Full Moon and hoping the water temps get down into the low 50s....Thanks...

56 this a.m. We've had some cooler temps and a NW wind that really knocked the temp down.

That sounds a bit better Paul. Woulda been nice to have water temps that low a week ago, but we still got into some nice fish. Got another trip planned to come up with my uncle a week from now to fish the north end. Hoping it will be in the low 50's by then.

Todd

Was able to convince my Dad to head up with me this weekend. I'll let you know what up on Sunday. Should be first weekend to expect big things. I'm a bit worried about the absence of midweek posts but everything is in line for a great weekend.

Team Otter,

You know my situation. Give me until late next week and I'll be in contact.(either way). The Mother-In-Law may be coming up to help the last week in Oct. to help.grin.gif.(Maybe my way to go and get up there if I work my tail off before that)

If not then, maybe the weekend of 11/2 or 11/3.

Rod-,

Just had to keep you on your toes. I know you're busy.

At this point, I'm available Friday, October 26 and Friday, November 2 through Sunday, November 4.

If the water temperature decline stays at this consistency, November could be unbelievable.

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
