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...

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
