The Heat Wave
September 2, 2010
I had a few days off this week so I decided to call my nephew & see if he wanted to partake in some serious catching. He usually fishes from shore near his house when he has a chance and getting him back on the boat for some bass & walleye would be a nice change. Both days saw really hot weather in the 90’s and almost no wind to cool you off. Dog pecker knat central! Fortunately, the fish were biting and we managed to get into some real nice smallies and walleye up to almost 5 pounds on both outings. With the water temps still on the rise it wasn’t a surprise to see almost 75 degrees on the second day. We both couldn’t take the heat too much and cut the days short by quitting between 1 & 2 o’clock. Even at that, it was almost more than we could endure and a change in weather will be welcomed soon. Overall, a couple of pretty good outings!!
