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".

Great news! What'd you have them going on primarily Cliff?

49-51 in Daisy and into Big this afternoon. Spent most of my day getting the boat ready and in the water. We'll get more fishing in tomorrow.

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!

Very windy today and it showed up in the water temps. We went from Pike to Daisy at 2:00 today. Deep in pike I showed 55, dropping to 51 by the time we got to the mouth. Big bay was consistent at 44 until we got close to birch point. Going between birch and moose island it dropped to 41. I think the wind had a nice current going along the point and the deep water was surfacing when it ran into the island. Daisy was 44-46.

I can't imagine what a walleye just short of a yard would look like coming into view.

Good morning Everyone....what are the water temps leading into the weekend?

Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66. 

We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

We had 56 to 58 from Daisy to Canfield Bay to Greenwood. Was 70+ last week. I lost all my minnows due to the warm lake water.

Has the lake stabilized since turnover or is it still in transition ,with these lower temps ? deep bite or still scattered ? Thanks in advance, will be taken off for the fall trip  on big v  early tomorrow morning  !!!

The turnover seems to be done now.

The walleyes are still scattered in some areas and slightly concentrated in the deeper spots.

Cold weather is still affecting the bite though, lots of short, light bites.

Bigger minnows are getting more hits but getting a hook-up is iffy.

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
