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.

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.

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.

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
