Somehow I knew it would be H20 with the quick answer. Sites not too accurate though, says satellite data is 19 days old. We have had some good warm-ups since the last data was taken. Why I ask is that around 46 degrees seems to be an ideal temp. for the perch to load up to spawn around the Coast Guard. Thanks for the help H2O but fear I will have to run the old thermometer down to the station and take some readings.
Yeah I have that one saved into my favorites already. That was my go to site before all my launches last year so that I knew what I was heading into crossing the mile roads. Not to mention when I go down to Erie or over to Charlevoix. The data is very accurate from the buoy and only seen it go down one time last year. No big deal on the water temp. it is only about a 10 mile hop to check it out just being lazy.
Yes that site is excellent, It's not showing water temps yet. If taking a temp near the shore it can be a bit different than out there aways. The sun beats the water near the shore and there could be a big difference than out there aways. But you probably know that for sure. Hey take your pole and cast a bit and let us know what happens. And give a report here on the temp.
Wow! Here I thought I was going to be all innovative and tie my thermometer to the rod and give her a good heave off the pier then I check back here and you already had the idea in print. Where I plan to fish is going to be real close in towards the shore anyhow so there shouldn't be a lot of variation but you are right deeper water will stay cooler and faster moving water will be warmer all these factors and more have been included into the strategy. I should have the temp. results for tomorrows posting. Appreciate the help.
