I was wondering if we are experiencing any change in the water temps on the big pond since we are having cooler night temps. What is everyone getting for temps out there? Won’t be long before the big bite is on!

It's been hanging pretty much in the upper 60's

We fished the south and the south east end of the lake and the temps were 71 in 18ft of water and 74 in the shallow weedlines. This was yesterday...

Seems like a VERY slow bite right now...

73.6 on the north end and 71.4 on the west side yesterday. Two weeks ago it was around 68.

i wonder what the difference is on one side versus the other when the wind is blowing? its got to be warmer down wind, pushing the warmer water on top. likewise, the cooler water is being displaced deeper the other direction.

Going up soon and wondering if the temps have dropped below 60. The warming weather and rain isn't helping that much I am sure. Thanks for the reports.

What do you guys use to measure water temp? (Besides an underwater camera?)

Most sonar ducers have temp gauges on them.

Oh yeah, I guess I should have mentioned I wanted to take the temperature at different depths.

Sorry, bit narrow minded on my part. From my understanding, they have a few different things that have a temp. probe on the end of a cable and just drop it down to the desird depth. Thing about Mille Lacs is, water temp doesnt' vary very much. Since there is no thermocline and the wind stirs the whole lake up, the water stays pretty well distributed.

i have one of those temp/color gizmo thingies but its not working...ive never used it. got it as part of a trade for a 35mm cannon camera and underwater housing with strobes. if someone thinks they might be able to fix and use it, i will trade it for a new fishing friend. it probably has 60' or so of cord? i have no idea. its supposed to tell you what color is best too. only one of the features works according to the guy i got it from.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
