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.

I am saving myself for Sept and Oct grin my favorite time of the year for fishing.

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

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
