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...

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
