Swim 9 am this morning.  No idea on temp but Major Shrinkage.  Coolimoolio! keep on rocken!   T  

48.6 degrees in Big Bay this morning. I heard today that a 33-7/8" walleye was caught and kept in Pike Bay yesterday! That is a true fish of a life time! Cliff

Water temps may be be 40 something on surface but four feet down at 3:30 PM during my annual Docks Done Dip it was as cold as normal for a clear rusty slushy. Major Shrinkage oh boy! Buuuuur

LB,

Certainly not 73 walleyes today!

Very tough bite all morning for my clients. Only boated 3 small walleyes all morning with them!

Dropped them off at noon and went to a spot that I very seldom fish and boated 6 nice keepers in a little over an hour!

Figures!:P

Any updates on water temps?

Been pretty stable in the low 70s.  73, 74, depending on time of day..

 

With the cool nights, was 55 last night, and moderate days in the 70s, it seems likely to stay there.   Pleasant for water sports.

79 to 81 yesterday.  Amazing what a few sunny, warm, calm days with moderate nights will do.

A couple of cool days knocked the surface temperature down to 73 as of yesterday evening.

71 at our dock, probably drop into the high 60's with the cool overnight temps forecasted. this should really get the fish going...

About 69 this morning....

And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing.

But I will still be watching....

What is the current water temp of Vermilion?  I left my boat/motor in the water and am wondering if I should worry about it freezing in before November 3rd when I get up next.

You should be fine, JL. I'm still fishing the West end (and catching) and today I found water temps in shallow narrows to be 42.6 and out in big, very deep water to be at 46.7. We've lost 6-10 degrees since last sunday in these same areas. Temps look cool but nothing bitterly cold to have to worry about things icing yet.

Thanks BFB and SM for the info.  Hopefully I can shoot a big buck early and have time for liquid water fishing yet this fall.  Will probably just tip the motor out of the water in hopes  I can get out November 6-10.

Saw a little skim ice in the rushes in Pike Bay today!

Thanks for the update, Cliff.  A little bit of skim ice shouldn't hurt my 40 year-old Johnson too much.

Good evening everyone.... I was just looking to revise this string for 2018 :)

Glad to see we're on the same page...I'll be up 2 weeks from Friday...interested to see how water temp rises before Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks ahead of time to all contributors. Good luck this weekend, and Tight lines!

      I just buy their frozen pizzas at the gas station and bring them home in a cooler now. I buy worlds best donuts at the holiday too, to avoid the insane line.

      Hey guys, going up to nine mile lake camping and noticed that Echo lake next door has Atlantic Salmon. Any tips on catching one? Is it even possible this time of year? Any help would make me and the little one super happy.  Thanks, Andy

      Did you show Boar this proof that you can catch fish? 😆

      Well at least it was cooler up there then any other part of the state the last few weeks.  My wife and I went up in the spring and camped at Cascade River state park. Most of the town was shut down all together. Even to get a pizza from Sven and Oles you had to phone it in and pick it up inside. The rest of it was closed down and they said they may not open other then take out because they couldn't find anyone to work. 🙁

      that's how the contractor referred to as. They put a easement on my property taxes. My mortgage went up 125 a month for ten years. This was 3 years ago maybe the funds are gone.

      they didn't have to here in Todd cty.   I know some folks who got it.....

      A grant (free money) or some kind of loan?   You have to pay it back?

      Just got back from our annual Grand Marais trip! I don’t know, maybe I’m just getting old and cranky, but over the last several times I’ve been up there, I’ve been liking the town less and less. Getting too artsy, hippy, liberal for me 🤷🏻‍♂️ Also sad to see the northshore getting absolutely “loved to death”! Has totally lost it’s up north feel.   Anyway, enough ranting. Fishing was terrible! Numbers and quality were way down. Aside from 2 smallies that barely scratched 17 inches (both were skinny), not even any medium bass were caught. Only caught a few small pike, and 1 walleye. As always, kids had fun catching sunnies from the dock at hungry jack lodge. By the way, we ate at their restaurant for the first time…AMAZING! Also fell in love with castle danger cream ale. Had fun on greenwood lake watching bass jump out of the water and catching dragonflies. There must have been a hatch going on, because they were everywhere! And every bass had fat little belly’s. The rainbow trout on kimball lake has fat belly’s too. They were gorging on mosquito larvae. Casting from shore on superior was actually productive…on the way up I caught a long nose sucker on a daredevil spoon. In front of our motel, I finally caught my first lake trout from superior! Anyway, overall it was still a fun trip. Did some hiking, mini golf, alpine slide. Didn’t see any moose, but we did see a bear and a wolf.    As always, the people at Hungry Jack Lodge were great! I think we’re going to start staying there from now on.
