I wonder how much effect it really has. Aside from shallow bays and the like, I suspect the temperatures have been fluctuating too rapidly to have much effect on water temps as a whole. It takes some time at higher temps to raise the volume in a lake a degree or two.

That's for sure. I bet the wind is having more effect than the temperature swings.

i went out today for roughly 5 hours...and only hooked one walleye. (...8 inches of walleye, uughh!) needless to say, i threw it back in the water. i've been out just about every other day since Opener, and I agree the fishing has been tough. i've netted 4 sheephead and 1 walleye in the last three outings. i've only heard of one person say they've done any good...my neighbor!

he went out yesterday (Sunday), and got 5 walleyes (one at 21.5") and 15 crappie. aside from his report...no one has been doing very well. i agree the weather has a lot to do with the bite...and the wind isn't helping either. actually the walleyes like the wind - it's me and my boat that doesn't. smirk.gif

i guess that's why they call it fishing instead of catching.

the rest of this week looks pretty funky weatherwise too.

My buddy and I did alright tonight. We went out on a metro area lake and fished an inside bend in about 15 feet, just outside the weed line. The wind worked to our advantage and we caught 15 walleyes and oddly enough there were a few bass and bluegills mixed in with the eyes. All the eyes were right around 13" to 15". We used up 2 dozen leeches and a pack of Gulp Leeches as well. The south wind today helped for us. We have been out three times since opener and found that the water temp really hasn't changed much, same lake all three times.

I was out yesterday, cloudy overcast, cool and between me and my bro inlaw we had 39 walleye, 1 pike and a sucker. This was an early season best for me grin.gif

I used to only go out on nice days but now that I enter tournaments I have to learn to deal with all sorts of weather.

Fishing has been tough for me but Ive been out everyday and 90 percent of my fish are vertical jigging or a few other forms of finesse type fishing. out of about 35-45 eyes I have caught already 10-11 of them have been nicer 19-23 inch fish. I caught the 23incher today on the MN river throwing raps in a foot of water. The other night we caught one but the boat broke down frown.gif

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
