What's the water temp today? Please update


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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!

49 to 50 degrees in Big Bay today!

Decent bite of smaller eaters in 29' to 36'.

Boated 25 and kept 12 between 13" and 16".

      I went fishing for the final time this season yesterday.  It was not very good.  Its the latest I've fished in a season for many years though because its been so warm out.   I decided not to duck hunt again this season based on the lack of success I've had in recent years.  By the reports I've heard locally, I made the right decision.   Between a full time job, yard work, going to the gym, and being a responsible Father/Husband, I don't get as much time to do what I want to anymore.  That's just the reality of it.  Sometimes I regret the decisions I've made on that, but now I'm stuck with it and its a necessary evil.  Retirement is still 20+ years away.  But I did go fishing 31 times this past season and I'm taking the whole week off to deer hunt.  After deer hunting I'll be pheasant hunting until the end of the year.   I'm grateful for my health and my mental ability that allow me to continue to do the things I enjoy, albeit not as much as I used to.   I try to post on here when I have successful days of fishing or hunting.  Sometimes it seems like the only fishing updates for weeks on end come from Vermilion.

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...
