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.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
