Water Temp On Chain

Recommended Posts

Coleman

Hey guys, I haven't seen any water temp posts, so I figured I would throw this out there.  I hit the Chain yesterday later afternoon.  And cruised around a bit.  For some reason I only remembered to pay attention to the temp when I put it, but it's something.  Water temp in the river was 56*.  Pretty crazy how fast the temp rises once the ice is off.   

 

I did notice fish right on the drop of the main basin in about 24'.  

 

The weather doesn't look too great this week with the possible rain...again.  But, looks like it could clam down a bit for the weekend.

I took the Ol' Man's boat out yesterday to get it on the lift.  Water temp on the river has risen to almost 59*.

Was on Long Lake portion of chain Wednesday. Surface temp was 65. Really warming up fast. The water, not the bite.

I know of a boat on Long that basically limited out on opener.  3 guys, 18 fish on Saturday.  North side of Long, in about 11 FOW and pulling rigs.

That’s my usual luck. Day late and dollar short. Oh well, rather have day on lake than at work anytime. Already looking forward to my next day off Thursday.  Not sure where I’ll go, but main thing is just to be out on the water. Best therapy I know after weeks worth of work stress.

      If you are set with Middle Spunk I'd jig for sunnies/crappies (or chase northerns).   Middle Spunk is heavily developed.  I avoid it for that reason but if you're going to be there anyways, you could certainly find worse lakes.  (my two cents are there are too many tubers/wake boarders in the summer which probably means winter is the better time to fish it...)   All three spunks can pretty good for fishing but all have heavy fishing pressure...  They all three are pretty much panfish/northern lakes.  (That usually means fishing can be boom or bust.) Upper (or Big) Spunk (which is actually the lower of the lakes looking at a map...) has the most interesting structure in it (humps, big bulrush island, etc... and a couple of pretty neat little bays in the summer) I personally prefer lower spunk.--probably half of the lake is undeveloped bulrushes.

      Do any of you guys know if Surface Tension still swims around these parts? I think I need my Nils sharpened. I had sent him a message through the HSO forum a while ago and didn't hear back. I'm not sure if HSO and Fishing MN share the same messaging platform, or if I need to try him here instead. Did a quick search and it doesn't look like he's posted in a while, so I'm hoping someone knows his whereabouts.

      Decent panfish lake. They would be my target kicks out some sporadic bites all year. Not much for a walleye lake they get stocked quite often but for some reason never take off. Don't rule out chaseing  Tullibbees. Every winter she gives some up. Piles of deep water out there she can be a tough one. I personally prefer Upper  easier to break down compared to Middle good luck!

      Heading up to Avon to fish Middle Spunk lake this weekend. Looking for any advice or insights for fishing this lake and what to target.

      All set for our annual fishing trip to Crane and Sand Point Lake. I have been going since mid 1980's and the new crew for the past 11 years. We will be there May 29 and staying at a campsite in Sand Point. We plan to venture up a bit perhaps to Wolf Island or Namakan. We fish almost exclusively for pike...all bass and eyes go back to swim again. Any spots to share for pike. We may even change it up a bit and fish crappies this year.  thanks ...good luck all you ice warriors. mark

      its a fun trip. i'd suggest going with a guide the first trip. I've gone out with the one who's last name starts with an H. He was pretty darn awesome.Then you can replicate the tactics. I've gone over there 3 times. Caught fish every time. It's AMAZING that in a large metropolitan area like that there are virtually no fishermen on the ice when it's there.
