water temps-west end

3 posts in this topic

Can I get an update on the water temps on the west end?

Are the whitefish staging for spawn yet?

Brett -

Was out yesterday and temps were 50-52. Didn't see much yet for staging whitefish. We've had a ton of rain so the lake is up two feet resulting in some floating debri, logs, etc. to watch out for. All the runoff has definetly changed things this year so far. Good luck if you come up.

Thanks for the report!!

I was thinking about coming up this week, but I think the water temps are too warm yet. I am still finding alot of fish in the cabbage in central MN. The fish haven't moved out to the hard bottom breaks yet. Water temps were 50 degrees today locally.

Hope things get going soon up north, Maybe see you later in the week.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
