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.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
