Water Temp on Long Lake and Big Chetac

7 posts in this topic

Heading up to our cabin in a couple weeks. Just wondering what the water temp was and how the fishing is going.

We were up at our cabin on Birch last weekend and the temps on Birch & Big Chetac were around 58 degrees. Crappies are on the bite as well as Walleye. We caught 9 Walleye on the opener, Pike, Crappie & Smallie.

I was on Long Lake yesterday and had a water temp of 60 to 61

anyone fishing for sunfish on these lakes, this is the week. The males started making the beds last week but when it got cold they went back deep, but as of yesterday, they are back on the beds and fiesty! Take advantage of that this week if you can!

Fiesty is right, I had them smacking bass poppers on Fri night.

Cooter,

Were you on Long or Chetac?

Neither, on Cornell. After Fri night I was confident there would be a gill fry in the near future but it was slow Sat and Sunday. Not many on beds there yet, plus its a small lake with lots of pressure and below average fishing IMO. I was up there for R&R mostly but did get some fishing in.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
