Actions heating up

7 posts in this topic

I caught 0 fish in june. 1 in july. and 4 in the last week. No monsters but all high 30's to low 40's. Anyone else experiencing a pick up in action over the last week or so?

The last 10 surrounding the moon phase was the ticket! A lot of big fish found my boat. This recent heat is slowing things down a bit. But...my tan is really coming around though!

You are correct! Its been heating up for me too! The heat wave has shut things down for me. I will give it a ride on Sunday.

June, July and August have all been consistent, but I agree that August has been better. We are catching bigger fish, and are having more multiple fish days as of recent. Looking forward to later this week when we are supposed to get some more cloud cover and potential for storms. Some wind would help.

I think the night bite is going to pick up with the warmer water temps from our recent heat wave. That will be refreshing as fishing during the day in this heat with little wind can be tough to say the least.

Had a 46 eat just before 10 am yesterday - Fished all day without a follow and well into the dark to only have a 36 eat at about 10:45 pm Then the dead sea once again.

This heat has gotta go!

Action has picked up a little with this heat wave along with 3footers witout the wind. Hooked up with about a dozen northerns and a short ski last night on the troll, tried casting but the floating weeds are terrible, every cast. Fished tonka with a water temp average of 78-79. Cruisers in every direction. Saw a lot of muskie anglers out there well into the night. Hope they had more luck. All the fish came from trolling edges. Also got sandwich last night a few times between huge cruisers on plane....on a weekday. Guessing more cruisers will be out tonight with the weather expected.

I hope the heat brings some action tonight. I could use some! Probably stay out awhile after dark and see what's happening. Gotta stay local instead of moving to different lakes each time out.

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
