About three weeks ago, might be due to the hot weather and thermocline driving the fish out of the deep and causing them to go on a bite, hope its not too late! Paul

Paul - Little Mac is spring fed, as are a lot of the lakes in the perham area. Does a thermocline form on these clear, deep lakes? Does the thermocline move 'up' as the hot weather sets in?
Just trying to get a feel for a topic that I know very little about...
I see plenty of fish at 35 to 40' on the clear, deep lakes...wouldn't that be below the thermocline?
thanks

You bet they get thermoclines! However it does take the right conditions for them to form. Hot days with no or very little wind will cause them. The lakes that get the thermoclines are those deep lakes like rose, long, pickerel, little mac, you get the picture. deep clear lakes with no outlet or inlet to speak of. I dont know if a thermocline will move up but it will tilt with a steady wind out of one direction. What kind of locator do you use? Paul

Hi minneman,
I dont know how your locator is set up as far as the settings go but my x 85 will show them in auto with the sensitivity maxed out as much as possible. some years a lake will set up some years they wont. about the only lake that I've seen one this season so far is bad medicine. That one was down in about 55 feet of water. If your locator is set properly it will show them, dad runs an x70a and that will show them if they exist. Paul
