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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
