Water Temp

4 posts in this topic

From the US Army Corp of Engineer site: The water temp has dropped to below 57 degrees at the Stillwater monitoring site... with the recent cold snap, should only drop further in the next few days. They'll be strapping on the feedbag!!!

Here's the link to that web site:

Be aware boys.The water temp at Stillwater differs from the temp in Bayport,Hudson and points south.I would expect to see temps in the Hudson area around 61-63 by Saturday.The Croix at stwtr is alot shallower than south,so it will cool and warm faster.None the less,the time for piggin out will come sooner than expected this year,Ya baby grin.gifgrin.gif

very true about the differences in locations... that's why I like to check the Stillwater data - from my limited experience, it's a great 'forecast' of the temps downstream from there.

Sounds like 'the boss' has decided that I won't be in town this weekend and I have a business trip next weekend! Why does it always happen that I can't get out on the river when the bite should be the best!!! frown.gif

Weather permitting, maybe I'll get out for a bit tomorrow night. Anyone have an update on the early evening bite around Hudson?

I showed 65-66 degrees late afternoon around Bayport. Trolled for 3 hours, nothing to put into the livewell. Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
