winter water clarity?

Recommended Posts

Pelican Lake

had the aqua view down this weekend; the water clarity in 22' was considerably different than two weeks ago?

(The last time I borrowed the view)

Why?

Dieing weeds maybe?

Fishing has been very slow lately, maybe I need to relocate.

Lake might have turned over.

Fishing has slowed down on pelican the last week. We also had the Vu down and noticed the clarity was different. The lake definitely turned over long before this, so its not that. We notice alot of organisms moving on the camera lens, freshwater shrimp? or some other aquatic organism. Could this affect fishing? Going to move to a shallower spot with some weed growth and give it a try.

How deep are you?

I’m sitting on a 22' horse shoe shaped flat that drops directly into one of the lake basins. A fairly steep drop from 10 to 19 then flat at about 22 to 25 until it drops to 80

Weeds are scattered until you get up to 19'or so. They don’t look too healthy

I was thinking of moving to the edge of the flat just before it goes to 80

Now I’m sitting way inside the shoe and I’m thinking they aren’t traveling the shoe anymore

Who knows?

Lots of houses on the edge being used regularly and lonesome me way inside the shoe

Moved house to edge of weed flat, 19'. Got some crappie action on glow jig with wax worms. Not monsters, Then something large came by and grabbed glow jig. was a battle with noodle rod, got off at hole. couple minutes later hook with fathead went down, felt like same fish, put up good battle, got off at hole again. Atleast gettin some action. T o bad this cool weather is comin in. Its even cool in the house with this -20 stuff.

      Hello Friends   Well it appears our dock company will not be able to lift our dock this season (Frazer Bay/Smart's Bay area) due to his lifting barge only being in this area first weekend in October and we like to keep the dock in until after MEA (this year ending October 21). Any suggestions? It's a pretty simple A Frame with a ladder and an L. I know I could do it myself, but have always preferred to have someone else do it.   Thanks for any insight

      The panfish tip above is a good tip for Webb. I grew up fishing that lake and I'd say good luck! I haven't caught anything worthwhile in the boat on Webb in years. Tips vary based on species, but the points are good and look for the "hidden treasures"

      Curious what that cost to have it surveyed if you don't mind sharing.

      Questions. Would you like something on a motor route. Stick to or fish smaller lakes. Travel distance. How many days.

      If you have an aluminum boat and open access to bottom of the hull, you can just set the transducer in a little puddle of water inside the boat.  The signal of a working unit will read just fine through the hull.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.
