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.

Too hot to sit out in the boat on the lake for hours now, sweat, biting flies, and sunburn wink

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

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
