Move north, young man

 

Ya, thunderstorms predicted all week, but Tuesday will be our warmest day at 86 with the rest of the week being in the mid 70s to low 80s.

 

Current water temp of Minnetonka - 68

Yeah I’m struggling too. Not the temperature but the bites are very slow. I’m limited to worms and creature baits if I want to catch anything.

I usually do alright in the summer.  It's too windy here to fish around the time of the spawn, so I rarely do much fishing when most people do their best fishing.  The fall is usually the best time for me, but it can be really hit or miss.  The summer is usually a pretty consistent, catch a few each time I go out. 

 

However, starting around last fall the fishing has just been terrible!  I don't know what happened, but no one seems to be doing well around here.  So I'm not so confident that this summer will be like normal, as nothing else really has been.

The majority of lakes around me here in South Jersey are pretty shallow, whiskey-color tannic, and full of pads. I actually like summer because it makes the fish pretty predictable. Fishing the pads is somewhat brutal, the gnats are horrendous. But the big ones are in there.

For me, bug repellent is the difference between a good or bad fishing day 😅

Yup, our first (and hopefully last - haha) heatwave of the summer just started.  Forecast is for 80-85 and feel like over 100 with the humidity.  That’s really hard on a Canadian at any time, but especially so early in the summer when daytime highs were still in the 60’s just a couple weeks ago.  Our water temps were 70-72 but they’ll be 75 by end of the week.  I expect the fishing will get tough, really fast.  Our season is so darn short - just opened this past weekend.  I’ve got no time for tough fishing. ☹️

@The Baron , our fishing gets better once spring turns into summer for me anyway. Dead of winter and heat of summer are always best for me , spring spawn and fall transitions not so much. The very beginning of fall cool weather can be pretty good around Halloween but for the most part the heat is where it’s at. Granted I’ve never been to Ontario but I’d bet those fish will bite during a heat wave and I’d also bet you can find em !
