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.

      In the summer and fall the night bite is excellent on Cass for eyes.  I'm not much help come winter time though.  With the clearer water due to zebra mussels, I would bet the night bite would be good.

      When I discover it I will let you know. I have not figured it out yet.

      Depends on your layout. If the walls can be easily removed inside that is usually the better option. If too much stuff is in the way...then yep...do as Cliff suggests.

      Is there a special dance or ritual I can do in an attempt at pleasing said fish gods? Cuz my moves and dance skills just are not up to par this year! Lol.
