Is This Hot Weather Effecting Your Fishing ???

Recommended Posts

It seems like only yesterday we were complaining about the ice taking for ever to get out of the lakes. Now I'm complaining about the heat. I don't know about you but this heat has been keeping me indoors in the air conditioning. How does this heat effect the fish? I know when I have been out there they havn't been to active. What do you think?

Personally Mary I Luv the heat, really concentrates certain species of fish and others (BASS) fall victim to what my main aresonel and that would be top-water morning & evening and jig-n-pork during the day.
What is nice about fishing the Faribo lakes is the middle of the lakes are somewhat cleaner and if you want to take a cooling dip, you can. Remember to drink plenty of fluids, water being probabnly the best.

Mary,

I fished the Mississippi from the 4th thru the 8th everyday. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I was on the water at 5 AM and off at 9 AM. At least it was only in the low 70's when I came off the water.

To tell the truth, the best bite everyday for me was 5-7. By 9 it slowing.

Pete

    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip?
