Last night water temp was between 79 and 80.
I see a full week of 90 degree air temps, humidity, and little wind is coming for next week. Any updates on current water temps?
61° - 65° F

Heading to Vermilion a week from Saturday. Just curious about water temps and weed growth. If you happened to know if crappies spawned would be helpful too.
My buddy and I's first go on Vermilion and pretty fired up about seeing it for the first time. We are staying in upper west corner at HeadOlake. If anyone could and wanted to be more specific that'd be great but either way really curious about water temps
Captn I go every year to piles bay in mid September with fish club. We use suckers most of the time or troll with leadcore. Indian point, dog island and raspberry island all have nice humps that hold smallies and eyes. Bays on the northwest have northerns. Hope you have a good time this is my favorite trip every year.
Captn, I’ve been going to Big V for 10 yrs. it’s an awesome lake but took me a few yrs. to figure out the west end and I’ve never fished the east. Best advice I can give is hire a guide for day one. They'll put you on fish and when you’re done you guys will know when, where and how, which will make the rest of your trip way more productive. Enjoy!
Group of us are coming up August 29-September 5th. 1st time at the lake as Canada was cancelled all summer. Is that time of year typically worms or leeches for walleye? Typical depths? Also will target pike and muskie assuming, big assumption, we catch enough walleye for meals. Where are they typically hanging out? We are staying on East end of lake. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
