Water Temps

Recommended Posts

Havent seen much lately about water temps on Mille Lacs. Just wondering if the temps have dropped much yet with the cold front. Headed up there for the October Full Moon and hoping the water temps get down into the low 50s....Thanks...

56 this a.m. We've had some cooler temps and a NW wind that really knocked the temp down.

That sounds a bit better Paul. Woulda been nice to have water temps that low a week ago, but we still got into some nice fish. Got another trip planned to come up with my uncle a week from now to fish the north end. Hoping it will be in the low 50's by then.

Was able to convince my Dad to head up with me this weekend. I'll let you know what up on Sunday. Should be first weekend to expect big things. I'm a bit worried about the absence of midweek posts but everything is in line for a great weekend.

Team Otter,

You know my situation. Give me until late next week and I'll be in contact.(either way). The Mother-In-Law may be coming up to help the last week in Oct. to help.grin.gif.(Maybe my way to go and get up there if I work my tail off before that)

If not then, maybe the weekend of 11/2 or 11/3.

Rod-,

Just had to keep you on your toes. I know you're busy.

At this point, I'm available Friday, October 26 and Friday, November 2 through Sunday, November 4.

If the water temperature decline stays at this consistency, November could be unbelievable.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
