Water Temp coming down!!

9 posts in this topic

St Croix water temp was 70 degrees this morning. With lows in the 50's at night it looks like those dog days of summer warm water temps may be over. Cats should be putting on the feedbag getting ready for winter. Time to chase the end of the season.

I would put my money on the fact that with your knowledge and time spent on the water Dtro, you will pop a big mama.

Nah, big Mama or not I had probably the most fun this summer yet. Had little to do with the fish I caught, but the time spent on the water with good company.

Steve, have you hooked into any of those “other” whisker fish yet?

No - but they are jumping all over the river. The falling water temp is a good thing for sturgeon fishing too - it seems like the bite is better as the water cools.

Yeah it was in the upper 40s sat night on the river, The MN should be cooling off but with how low the water is, shouldn't take much to warm it back up.

just bought a cabin on the horseshoe chain in cold spring and am excited to fish for the channels, only fished for them once and caught a 15 pounder last year, wow was that fun, anyway, could someone give a general rundown on where the fish will be when the water does cool down in september, doing some elementary research looks like deeper holes, bridges, current seams ect. also will they be any more active during the day or is it still mainly a night gig. any general info would be greatly apprecciated. thank you!

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!
    • That's from the Trailer Park Boys. A hideous beast.
    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
