Thermometer?


Aquaman01

Question

Hi.
I've seen the electronic thermometers that you drop down and read from the boat - too much $$. Any other ideas aside from a display on your sonar?

Hey Aquaman-vexilar made/makes a thermometer that clips on your line and can be lowered to a depth where it will fill up with water and the temperature can be read. I think they are about $5-8 and I don't see them everywhere but if you look hard enough or contact vexilar I bet you can find one.Good luck and tightlines!

I use a swimming pool thermometer to real the water temp at the bottom of the lake. I rely on the temp the fish are at more than th esurface temp. After a while you can make assumptions on the tempeture at the bottom considering depth, time of year and themocline.
It kind of fun to see the water temps change fish patterns over the course of the year. If you keep a log of these you will definatly see a pattern. over the course of a year. And it also changes from lake to lake.

Redhooks - found it. If I have to order it from Vex it's $6.00 plus shipping. Thanks - it's what I'm looking for.

You can find electronic thermometers with a 50 ft cord for under 20 bucks. I have one with the 50 ft cord and any other with 150 ft cord. I use them on Inland trout lakes and the Great Lakes. An other usefull tool is a small dial theremometer to take the fishes temp.

A thermometer is an other tool to FIND fish. Fish are cold blooded, so the temp of the fish is going to be the temp of the water that fish desires. For example you catch a Laker and its temp is 49 degrees then you fish in 49 degree water. How do you know where 49 degree water is? You send your thermometer down till you find what depth 49 degree water is at. Trout are suspending fish. On the Great Lakes your structure is water temps on the surface and throughout the water column.
If your releasing fish and worried about hurting them well its just like taking your toddlers temp, just be gentle.

I did a qwick search for the thermometer and didnt find it. Pro Catch or something like it, even has water clarity reading. Its in my boat and my boat is still put away. I'll look around and see if I can find one online. I recommend the electronic one so you can get continuous reading at different depths.

That's a good reason.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
