So glad the holiday is over and now it's time for some quiet (er) time on the water.

I hear that. I'll settle for the quieter starting Saturday if possible.

I was working. Double time for working 8 hours and not dealing with the crowds on the water, I'll take it.

I try not to go near lakes, rivers or streams on Labor Day, Memorial Day or the 4th of July. Its amateur hour. But soon the best time of year will be on us. Fall is when the hunters head to the woods and I put on a flannel shirt and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Easily my absolute FAVORITE time to bass fish . . . . . 

Now if we could just ease up on this week long major deluge a little . . . . . . .

It was storming here all weekend long! I braved the weather and had the lake all to myself three days in a row. 

Fishing wasn't great, but I stuck a few each day.

It's been in the 90's here the past few days and is supposed to continue for a few more days. If only the water temps would drop down to around 70*, I'd be a happy camper.

Labor Day is the day all the fisherman here look forward to. It's the end of the summer and all the vacationers are gone and we get the lake back. Shasta Lake is a summertime destination and every summer, up to 2 million people visit. Now that they are gone, the temps need to drop out of triple digits and the smoke from all the fires needs to disappear. There's so much smoke it looks like fog.

Down here it's pontoon boats pulling tubes, jet skis, and ski boats pulling skiers that create 2 ft swells and completely blow out the bank fishing! Water will be muddy 20 yards out from the bank!  Now that all that is pretty much said and done it looks like Gordon is gonna give us some much needed fresh water!  My favorite lakes are over 2 feet low... fingers crossed..

Your lakes are 2 feet low??? I wish we had that problem. Shasta is down 77 feet right now

Well, in perspective our lakes bottom out around 20-25 feet.  We have very few deep water lakes... 77 ft would put ALL of our lakes BONE DRY.....

This is why you need a fishing boat AND a ski/pontoon. Back the fishing boat up in the garage on holiday weekend. Load up the color and go have fun in a cove instead

This a solid strategy and I  employ it myself.

Agree....such an amazing time of year for animal life moving...that crispness in the air....shorter days which when you get older means it's easier to fish from dawn to dark.....:).......and the list goes on.
