Fishing shirt question

9 posts in this topic

I'm trying to find a good light-colored long-sleeved fishing shirt made of quick drying synthetic for use in hot and humid weather. Can you recommend one?

Thanks.

I'd suggest the Columbia Bonehead Shirt. For about $35, you can get a very comfy shirt in either long or short sleeve. The long sleeves roll up and button into a short sleeve. I've used these shirts for several years in hot, hot weather and haven't found a better shirt.

Good Luck!

That's an easy one. Most athletic sportswear is synthetic and designed for wicking and dryness.

I just got a silky smooth pair of shorts and a shirt from K-Mart for 8 bucks each.

I agree with Columbia Bonehead, I have a half-dozen of them and think they're the best.

I have a feeling they are stopping production on the Bonehead shirt. I see Cabelas has them on clearance on their website.

      And just like that, it's open water time.... Got a few small ones today... felt good to have the long rod out again

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
