Water temps

Recommended Posts

I went out about 11 days ago to check out a few spawning areas but the water was 55.1. Went out again on Tuesday and now the water has warmed up to a whopping 56.3. NO gills shallower than 15fow that I could find but finally some shallow weed growth is happening. I have heard people say that the spawn is going but in the lakes I have checked to date, water is way too cool. Anyone find warmer water yet?

The lake I was on last night by DL was 60-61 in the shallows. Lost of crappies, sunnies, northerns up shallow in 3-7'.

    • If it's the thin stuff you get in grocery stores you need more than that for 2 people.
    • How is the ice fishing in SD?  I found a few places with sleepers on Bitter and Big Stone that looked interesting, but we decided we're heading to LOTW this year.
    • All that bacon is for only 2 people?people???🤔🙄😂
    • Picked at least a 5 gallon pail of early girls so far and am up to 20 BLT's in, but I can't wait for these bigger than bread slicers! Must be eaten outside or over a sink.  
    • Yeah I am afraid with the pandemic and lots of new people resorting to outdoor activities. Are we going to see that transition to hard water also? I think its great to see people enjoying the outdoors. I just hope it doesn't turn into a zoo at every lake like it has this summer on the lakes and rivers that I have been fishing. The thundering herds could be interesting this year.
    • Well trained youngins following Mama to the bird feed scattered on the ground under the deck. An annual late summer event.
    • Just a friendly note to book your ice houses early this year. Spent the past week researching sleepers for my annual ice fishing trip with the buddies in January. Found quite a few places on the popular lakes (Red, LOTW, etc.) already booked up.  Not sure if they always book up this early, or if this year is special because everyone has been so cooped up, but I wouldn't wait much longer if you want to book a weekend this winter.
    • I have the 17” but I usually only cook for two, so it’s perfect plus it’s portable.
    • I have to agree with @rundrave, and should’ve added to make sure you use the command “Down” so he knows this is a no-no.  Once he gets the drift Down means get down or get a knee, he’ll be hesitant to jump up on new people and you can prevent it by telling him Down before he jumps.     Say it, then instantly follow up with the negative reinforcement if he doesn’t immediately comply.  Saying it at the same time seems less effective if not said before as a warning.
    • Knee to the chest has got him to not jump up like that on me or my family. He is mainly jumping up at strangers to him. I tell people to do that and some do and he quits. I am hoping to figure out a way to stop that. I have a training collar for him but it’s never on when someone just stops by. He has not had his dew claws removed.    I had been feeding him 1.5 cups 3 times a day but switched to 2 cups twice a day. Don’t ask why I was doing 3 times a day because I really have no idea. He seems to eat slower now with the twice a day. Not sure if that had anything to do with the loose stools either.    Thanks for all all the help so far.
