Default HOT water

Went fishing at a local lake last night. This lake is about 35 acres and is approximately 40 feet deep at its deepest point.

Along the dam, I dropped my thermometer about 18" below the surface to check the temps. It read 88 degrees.

This was at 8:30pm close to one of the deepest parts of the lake.

No wonder the fishing has been slow.

This lake is mainly bass, bluegill, crappie, some catfish and a few carp.

From having a pool for many years, I've noticed that night swims are much warmer than day swims. I think it retains it's heat through the night and loses it in the early AM.

Trey,
I agree. The lake would absorb heat during the day and release it at night. I would think the surface temp would be lowest just at dawn or slightly before. Unfortunately, it's so hot right now I doubt if it makes much of a difference. I was talking to a couple guys who got out at 4am one day last week and fished until about 10am and didn't catch a thing. These guys are good fishermen too.

Jeff
