Nick, yes huge water temp drop in five days especially for a lake as deep as Elkhart.  Was out Saturday evening for a couple hours no bites. Water was 56.5 down to 35 feet then at 40 it dropped to 47.  No bites last night.   Ciscos everywhere its amazing how many are in Elkhart

Was out yesterday from roughly 8:20 AM - 6:45 PM. Fishing conditioned LOOKED ideal (ha) with overcast skies and a nice cold W/NW/N wind. I think air temps were forecasted in the low 40s yesterday. Water surface temps were consistently around 57.5 degrees all day regardless of where we went. Teemslayer, this is a good 7 degree drop from what you stated just a few days ago. A friend and I went out musky fishing and we had to wear our cold weather gear all day.

We fished hard all day and I focused on areas that have produced fish for us in the past, but nothing happened yesterday. I had one small fish come up and whack a twitch/jerkbait. I also saw a hefty 40+ fish lazily swim right under the boat and pass us by completely - didn't look interested in anything. I also had the live bait panic 4-6 times during the day. Not a single take, though.

Oh well. I'll be back out there a few more times until ice up. I prefer water temps to be colder anyways.

Same mentality here on Tichigan!   One wrapped my line in his prop so I opened my bail.   CARPIO

I could see a big fish biting out here on Monday,  the last day of unseasonably warm weather with a huge cold front coming in late at night, as tough as they are on Elkhart it's conditions like this that make them bite!  I'll be there for one last shot.  Cisco's are schooled up tight right now on the steep breaks.  Good fishing

Figure8, we were out there on Monday, November 13th and water temps were 45-46. That was a while ago already, but the weather has been mostly mild. You should still have good temps to work with. Sadly we winterized the boat too early.

We caught the small one pictured below that day. I raised a large fish right after dark but couldn't make her eat on the eight. That bigger fish was moving up into a school of fish that I had located. Focus on finding the baitfish. I forgot to post last year, but the second photo is of another fish we caught late in the year. It was a very mild day that time.
