Water Temperatures

5 posts in this topic

With the recent rains does anyone have any water temp readings? If you just list the lake and temp that would be great. Thanks!

Was on Rice Lake on Wed. evening and the water temp was 62.7. The bite was light and slow.

Sugar on Thursday I watched it drop from 62 to 60 surface reading. Lots of bass caught but no Northerns, walleyes, or the elusive(especially for me) Muskie. Bass were caught on fatheads in 10-14 fow and a couple on a Muskie Chatterbait crazy.gif Caught over a dozen in 3+hours. Biggest was 17". Most were around 12".

Briggs/Rush 58 degrees saturday afternoon. Big Elk 57. Some Walleyes hitting shallow on jigs, ended up two shy of my limit. Also caught some Pike and a Bass. It was a real light bite, the fish wanted the jig slowly dragged across the bottom. All fish caught in less than 3 FOW.

Koronis was 55-57.5 degrees tonight.

Fishing was slow but a few eyes and a large pike cooperated.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
