Water Temps

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck. 
    • Wanderer
      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
    • eyeguy 54
      I did till about 2 then just had to go for a bit. LOL 
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
