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.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
