What Depth?

7 posts in this topic

I am not smart enough to arrange that cool pole set-up that cjac has on his thread but here is my idea... If somebody wants to do this in an official pole that would be cool.

So far this year where have people been catching there fish?

If you keep a log this should be easy, just state how many fish in each depth range.

0-4' of water

5-8' of water

9-12' of water

13-16' of water

16' plus

typically I think most come in the 5-8 range but this year I think i've found at least a fish or two in each range. Its been an odd year for me though, I've found fish in a few places I never even looked before.

Most of my fish have been in the 12' range.

Might be a tricky one to get good results with the poll deal....

Couple tigers have come over deep water, another one was up in the 0-4 FOW. I really haven't fished the muskies too much this year to give good stats. Still on the slooooow mend from the February back op. A 3/16oz bass jig or weightless Senko is a lot easier to cast!

One over deep water (35+) from shore as the ice was coming off in April, 1 from under a dock (8' max) last trolling in 12'. Lost several others most under 12'

Almost all of mine have been less than 12' with a majority being less than 4'.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
