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!

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.

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
