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.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
