    I was reading an article in a magazine about checking water temperature (finding the thermocline) and pH (optimum habitat for fish) before fishing an area. Most of the lakes in the article were big lakes that were 50’ deep or more. I was wondering if anyone actually uses temperature probes and pH monitors in Ohio lakes/rivers they fish and if they do make a difference in finding fish.
  2. Out at Eastwood metropark, if you set your finder sensitive enought you can find the thermocline, once i find the thermocline the fish are always suspended above it.

    I'll check the temperature in the early spring to find the warmer water and the fish. After the mid-April/first of May I won't bother with that anymore.
    I never heard of anyone checking pH other than in an aquarium.
    Remember, the pH will vary with temperature.
