What to do above 90 / your perfect weather day?

Bobby Bass

Recommended Posts

Well what do you do when it soars past 90 in the shade? I don't work outside my boss has a No work after 90 rule ( I'm the boss) with no clouds it's just to hot to go fishin but it is a good time to replace line on the reels, check the tackle box and go to the A/C of Gander to pick up a few things. So what do you do when it's just to hot to go fishin? On a day like today I let the jet ski's have the water. So here is your question. What is your perfect weather day on the water? I will go first with a fall afternoon say late Sept. slight breeze, few clouds temps in the low 60's one of those surprise days. Calm water and not a jet skier anywhere. Enough docks still in the water to maket it interesting and of course the fish would be biting.. And when this does happen everything else just falls in place. You hit green lights all the way from home, no one at the landing so you have prime parking. No one to tell you that "you should have been here yesterday" You know one of those days where your wife has a cooler packed and suggest....that you go fishing smirk.gif I have been lucky and seem to get a couple of these days every year. I enjoy them more to, sometimes I share them but like when dad dies in Grumpy Old Men you know he was at peace sitting on that old bench. So what's your perfect fishin day?

I was off today and was planning on fishing.. but I opted out. TOO hot.. and so humid. A bit too windy for my tastes as well.. my little 14' boat is horrible in waves and anchor can't hold either.

SO.... 80 degrees.. Dewpoint 50's.. 5-10 mph winds. Overcast. smile.gif

Looks like the weather the rest of the week is going to cool down quite a bit - just a little patience and you will be rewarded!

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
