Anybody have a recent temp on the river ? THANX
That's a good drop for a week, hopefully that wakes the walleye up.Times Herald always lists it on top of page 2 (is the water intake temps, for each city).
I checked Sunday, said 63 (for St.Clair , middle of river) I checked Tue, and it said 61. So we have dropped 6-7 degrees in 1 week (river is usually 1-2 warmer than lake, depending on the city, warmer downstream).
This week, wont move as much with the warm coming back.
Have a buddy that says once it hits 50 degrees its a 2 man limit in an hour whipping just about every time out till its too cold for him to fish. I know the last week in October and first week in November have been my best time casting from shore. Guess the moral to the story is the fishing is good now, better at 55 and best at 50 and below55 has always been our Q to whip.
Yes fish get caught warmer than that but my best has been 55 and under espically in nov. We really kick ass that month for walleye.
Should be about the same routine as spring, heard of someone getting a mess of them down by the campground in 40' of water last weekend. I'm sure it wouldn't take you long to find them Joe. You just need to find a morning/evening that the wind takes a break and get out there.Jigging wise - do you see a return to spring patterns for walleye as far as depth and locations?
Hunting has been so unproductive that I might go back to fishing...
