Amen brother. I can't wait for ice either. Head to your local small river for relief. A good float is the cure for what ales ya. No weeds, nice cool water and shade. August and rivers go good together.

Last year we had 27 days 90 degrees above about. I think we are up to 6 so far this summer.

I go in the spring & fall, but it takes a real effort for me to be motivated to go in the summer.

Im skinny and I hate any temp below 70 degrees. Im on the lake all day and loving it!! Even if the fish arent biting you will find me streched out on the casting deck with a cold one in one hand a smoke in the other and my brain shut down for the after noon.

as the old saying goes,

a bad day fishin' is better then a good day working.. grin

Too hot? I've never in my life been "too hot" to fish. 11 years to go and I'll be spending winters in Arkansas and spring, summer, and fall up here. Open water fishing year around. Yeah baby.

I've never been to hot to fish either. Just bring another bottle of water. Fall fishing is awesome but then come the winter months and I'm not ready for that at all. One bad day bass fishing is better than a really good day ice fishing. Everytime.

I have to disagree with you on the one. Completely opposite for me.

I really get the itch for hunting this time of the year. For me summer fishing is just something to get me through to hunting and ice fishing. Anything above 75 and no humidity is to hot. ill take a nice 30 degree day over 80 any day. My wife is the polar oppisite and gets [PoorWordUsage] when i tell her its only 45 days to fall. Adam

man you guys don't like the heat? Gimme a trout stream or a small river in the hot hot summer sun and I'm in heaven. Some of my best smallmouth fishing comes in August. Just gotta know where to look

Also can't beat super early morning or late night fishing this time ove year. Love it!

Course, hunting and ice fishing are great too

I sure do love Fall and Winter, and would take a cold January day over the July heat waves any time, but there is something about not being worried about getting a frostbit appendage that makes me enjoy open water as much as ice fishing. That being said, I'm ready to skip right through August and get to September for the start of hunting and fall fishing.

I am a big fat guy and love the heat. It is the humidity that I could do away with. As long as I can wear shorts, and a tank top it could be 100 degrees and I would not mind. Now 90 and humid at work wearing jeans, work boots and a t-shirt inside with no air moving, that is true misery.

I can't wait for mid sept- and beyond. I caqn dress comfortably all year except for the summer heat. once your naked and sweating then what do you do? You need to be under water to be comfortable outside. All though the evenings and mornings this time of year are absolutely perfect if you can sta awa for the pesky bugs.

That's my theory too. You can always put more clothes on to stay warm, but when it's hot you can only take off so much before getting arrested. grin

High's in the 70's next weekend, that's what I'm talking about!

It's not that I don't or won't fish in the midst of summer, just that I don't make as big an effort to get out as often.

And that getting naked on the water thing, well let's just say for some people it would just not be right sick

Heck yea, I've seen way to many in shorts and no shirt that need to put a shirt on!! sick I've seen a lot of bikini's that should have covered a lot more than they should have. But there are always those that make up for it (in the bikini's that is) laugh

    • You mean all the things that Trump failed to bring up? He spent a lot of time interrupting and not giving any specifics about his supposed plans so he may as well have been bringing up these topics. 

      Hillary whiffed it too by failing to bring up the wall and who is going to pay for it. 

      These 2 are such morons they can't even slander each other very well.

      My takeaways:

      1. Hillary Clinton is a terrible speaker. She not only makes me want to fall asleep when she talks but she also makes me want to vomit.

      2. Hillary has very little of substance to say anyway.

      3. The amount of lies, half-truths and deflecting coming out of both candidates mouths also makes me want to hurl.

      4. Trump looked like a fool on the "looks vs. stamina" question, the "stop and frisk" discussion, and his description of the "birther" issue, 

      5. Hillary looked like a fool on the "trade" issue.

      6. Both candidates are just saying what they think people want to hear.

      7. Trump actually did much better than I expected but still came across as a lying, bumbling fool.

      8. Neither candidate looks even remotely close to being "presidential".

    • Lots of good info. I use the Z-man ones too mostly. I do wish they had better hooks. Had a good night with them tonight! I'm starting to like them cause you can use them like a jig also, yet fish them fast when needed.

      I have a couple of the Project Z ones,which seem built better, but also cost more. They are 3/4oz, so I use them in a little deeper waters.

      Trump tried to explain how he would resolve racial tensions by using "stop and frisk" (a policy that discriminates against blacks and was ruled unconstitution) and also somehow thought talking about how letting blacks into his $100,000 initial membership fee golf club was a good analogy for how he would help inner city blacks.

      That's 5 star feed for the angry, battered, fed up cattle who lean con.

      Trump questioned Clinton's health/stamina, even though he had the sniffles, consumed a great deal of water, and was leaning against the podium to remain upright (Clinton never coughed, leaned on the podium, or drank any water for the entire duration).

      He is 70 and been on the road for quite some time. I give it to him. Not bad for an old timer.

      Maybe Clinton is antibodied, steroided out.

      Pretty sure they gave her what ever she need to to get her through that debate and debunk and quell any idea of health concerns..if there happened to be a health concern. Which I have no idea obviously.

    • So you think we deserve worse? Or you are happy with our leadership? We deserve honest politicians who work for us, again it's not a complicated idea so I'm not sure what the issue is. Do you always try and make a mountain out of a mole hill? Or just too busy defending the status quo that anyone who does not align with one of two parties needs to be questioned?
    • Both have serious issues, but with regards to last night's debate only one candidate was an utter disaster. By the end Trump could barely utter coherent sentences. It seemed he would just meander his way through words until somehow he arrived at one of the handful of talking points he wanted to get across.   Trump admitted to not paying any taxes: "That's just being smart" - "They would have been squandered if I did pay them"   Trump tried to explain how he would resolve racial tensions by using "stop and frisk" (a policy that discriminates against blacks and was ruled unconstitution) and also somehow thought talking about how letting blacks into his $100,000 initial membership fee golf club was a good analogy for how he would help inner city blacks.   Trump passed off a $14 million loan as "a small amount" like anybody can come up with that.   Trump said of entering the mortgage business before the housing collapse "That's just good business". Trump Mortgage LLC went bankrupt in 2007, before the housing collapse.   Trump suggested that China should "take care of North Korea" - which does not sit well with the 2nd most powerful country on the planet.   There was this frightening exchange: Clinton: He said, "you know if they taunted our sailors I would blow them out of the water and start another war." Trump: That would not start a war. Clinton: That is not the judgment. That is not the right temperament to be commander-in-chief to be taunted and the worst part Trump: They were taunting us.   Trump questioned Clinton's health/stamina, even though he had the sniffles, consumed a great deal of water, and was leaning against the podium to remain upright (Clinton never coughed, leaned on the podium, or drank any water for the entire duration).   Trump somehow thought wrapping up the debate with an attack on Rosie O'Donnell was in some way relevant to anything mentioned in the debate.
    • So, why do you think "we all deserve better" ?  After all, that's what you said.  
    • Well I did some looking on line and found some ideas but none I liked so I put me engineering skills to use and thought of this idea it works great going to pick up some more d rings for the deck to tie down and some of those heavy duty straps I relized I can keep my spare tire on too which makes me happy and it's not hurting the trailer at all so it works great used my old wooden ramps and I didn't need to buy a new trailer! Cost me nothing to!
    • Did you bother to read the entire quote? What part of it do you disagree with? You are now a proponent of spending money on climate change?  BTW, you are a little behind the times. You do know you are bringing up something that happened in 2011, right?
