Water Temps

7 posts in this topic

I'll be up turkey hunting all of next week and hope to get out fishing a couple days as well. I'm curious about the Alex area water temps. Anyone take note of the temps over the weekend? Big lakes? Small lakes? I'm trying to narrow down where to start fishing.

Some of the bays are over 65deg. I found most of the crappie to be moved out of those shallow bays already. I'd try deeper areas close to the bays if I was you.

Both lakes I was on Saturday were 54 and 55 degrees in the main parts and 65 in the shallow, dark bays.

Crappies I found were in the reeds over dark bottoms.

Thanks guys for the responses. Since I will be looking for main lake temps in the low 60's a week from today, it looks like things are shaping up nicely. Now I need to focus on getting my gobbler...

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
