Hot times at Busse

Postby Rambler » Jun Sat 29, 2019 5:35 pm

And I ain't talkin' about the fishing.

Hit the water around 12:30 Thursday with my best friend. HOT! NO WIND! HOT!!!

We started with buzzbaits (so what else is new?). He moved to a frog while I figuring the bass had moved deeper, put on a jig/twister with a safety pin spinner. Paddled east of the launch & along the southern bank. Hours passed without any action. Did I mention how hot it was? I mean, jeeezzz.

Paddled across to the east bank. I tried a crankbait. Everybody was asleep in the summer doldrums. When I paddled into the little cover south of CWB I went back to a buzzbait and got the only serious hit of the day. Lost it in the weeds. Meanwhile my buddy landed a dink. He also found a dead 12" walleye in the water.

Paddled into the lee of Cormorant Island for some dinner being careful to avoid their shit bombs. Still hot. When we paddled out of the lee big storm clouds were moving in. A couple of drops fell and the wind picked up. Neither of us wanted to be on the water in a possible lightening storm so we headed in.

The end.
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

Commorant shit bombs on a hot steamy stagnant day. Eagle shit honorable. Commorant I'd be so angry.

Some of the worst fishing conditions in my opinion. Approaching storm front some of the best. too bad one lasts hours and the other gives you maybe 15 mins before your blown off the lake :lolno: Those Hot windless days kept me off this weekend. :roll:

No doubt.

I forgot to mention how many times I applied sunblock - probably 6. F'd up & wore sandals so I had to take them off & smear crap on my feet too. Had a bit of cancer cut off the right one a couple years ago & don't want to do that again. A good friend died 2 years ago from cancer that started on his foot.

Be careful out there.
