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.

Ditto the ditto on the Bonehead.. Great shirt. Like the vent in the back as well.

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

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
