Water Temps And Fish Locations

3 posts in this topic

On average, what is usually the water temp on the western end of kabetogama memorial weekend? I'll be up there for the first time that early in the season...will it still be a little too cool for bass? Where can I find the walleyes? Crappies worth an effort?

JBMA, the water temps for Tom Cod, a shallow bay will probably be in the mid 50's, it does flucuate of course but only by 4 or 5 degrees.

I usually don't fish smallies, but they are quite prevalent, and can be found in that area of the lake by the rock piles.

As for walleyes, read early posts after opener on this forum, so much depends on ice out and temps. Normally I would suggest areas that hold the baitfish that maybe spawning at that time . That being said, weed edges, soft bottom-gravel areas and shorelines that have creeks if there happens to be any inflow.

Shallow reef edges can be a great structure, like Center reef and similar structures. good luck, guts

Thanks for the info. I'm sure I'll think of more questions to ask in the coming weeks, but I'll be sure to post my results when the time comes.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
