12poundbass's annual winter thread

Recommended Posts

Looking at the forecast for the next 48 hours made me think about this thread. Today high of 92 extremely humid and heat index of 100. Tomorrow 94, extremely humid, heat index of 108! I know you southern boys are saying so what! Here’s the kicker, go back 6-7 months when our windchill was -25, that’s a 138 degree swing! Figured I’d share that. Carry on.

6 months from now you will both be crying about the winter weather again. That will come after you go through all your leaf collection. :lol:

No Doubt ~ 

But I may for go the leaf collection this fall completely.

Hoping to get rid of most of them while I'm either blowing snow or mowing . . .

The cold front is supposed to hit Chicago late Saturday night, early Sunday morning and bring rain with it. You should expect a cool down sometime on Sunday.

80 for us Sunday and 78 Monday-Tuesday and less humid.

Nearly 8PM in Omaha right now and we are still sitting at 93 with a “feels like” temp of 108.  Far too hot for my liking.

Could touch 100° according to some reports.  It was 80° and humid this morning before the sun came up.

I was surprised to see on the weather reports the northern part of the country will have higher heat indexes than we will. Our temps will be low to mid 90s with heat index of 100 to 105. Cold front should be her Monday night to cool us down for a few days. Since I don't handle extreme heat well anymore I won't be fishing for a few days.

I'm still fishing tomorrow. Figure I'll go from 5:30-10:30. It will probably hit 90 around that time.

83 and you could cut the air with a knife this morning when I left at 5:40.

My malamutes, despite blowing most of their winter coats, are fairly miserable out in the kennel.

There's a big oscillating fan out there but it's not really helping at this point.

They'll be pretty happy to spend the night down stairs in the A/C . . . 

And they will run me right over to get in the house later - because they know.

But try and get them outside in the morning . . .

Especially when this is their Idea of Nap time . . .

My GP Hank goes out twice a day at these temps. Once in the morning once at night to get his bone. He’s no dummy he knows it’s too d**n hot to be out. Mark the territory and run for the house!

I am thinking a night fishing excursion is in the works for me tonight.  Temps should be reasonable comparatively speaking and moon should provide al the light i need.  Hope to get out around an hour before sunset and fish till i am either freaked out by the bats too much or i run out of alcohol....

I hope you guys are taking care of yourselves in the heatwave we are having. It does not matter how strong you are or you think you are, you can still be a victim of heat stroke. A 32 year old former NFL player recently died from heat stroke. He was 6'3'', 315 pounds, and was in the Super Bowl.

Caught a couple small ones but the lake had something going on with it.  There was stuff floating everywhere and a slick on the water.  I got there around 6 or so and stayed out till about midnight.  My electronics were acting wacky too, side imagine was ok but down imaging and traditional sonar was all cluttered up.  I am hoping it was just because of all the "stuff" in the water but we will have to see next time I go out there.

Algae bloom? Our lake just had a nasty one over the last couple weeks that almost completely choked off the narrows to the main lake. Thankfully they came and sprayed Wednesday I believe and it’s cleared things up considerably. I wasn’t launching my boat again until it cleared up.

I don't think it was algae but it was all murky and water was down some.  Not sure if they opened up the dam a little to let more water through and that was stirring it all up or what.  It was almost like a fall turnover kind of deal.

I actually had to turn off the fish alarm because it was going crazy
