water temp is it true?

4 posts in this topic

I was on the army corps of engineer link that has the water level and water temp (surface) of the croix, it is showing at 48 degrees is that true? If so, this weekend could definitly be GAME ON

that temp is taken at the bridge in Stillwater... temps tend to run a bit higher downstream - at the "lake" section around Hudson. Either way, the temps are dropping fast and the bite should be headed in the right direction!!!

that's what I was thinking, would it be saw to guess that from stillwater to prescott it would be a 8-10 degree difference

we were out today south of the I-94 bridge... the water temp on my sonar readout was just a hair under 50 degrees. We did pretty well (kept a three-person limit of sauger, threw a few small ones back, hooked up a nice sturgeon, a couple of white bass and a handful of sheepheads) simply jigging with fatheads (the shiners just weren't cutting it although the sturgeon was caught on a shiner). If today's results are any indication, the fall bite should be AWESOME once the temps drop another few degrees.

      Another beautiful day on the ice Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy Scott got a couple of nice ones- a 28" and a 29".

      Are you saying people with better reports are being dishonest?

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.
