With the thermometer hoovering in the mid 90's and the heat index even higher, I hit the water anyway.  Big Ben the owner of Dockside Outdoors jumped aboard the Razzle Dazzle with me yesterday for a 1/2 day of fishing out of Converse Bay.
It was far too hot to fish and I "know" we were crazy to be out there.
Barely a breeze, not hardly a ripple.

It was a tough bite to say the least. We went 2 for 3 on legal salmon and got pestered by a bunch of little shakers. Pink on silver worked, blue/purple "hot item" was firing, but I think the lure that fired the most was a purple/black honeybee mp6 by Tamiron. Ben covered 1/2 the white on the back side with black tape and nailed a nice 22 incher with it from 60ish down and a long lead behind the ball, maybe 30 feet.

There were very few boats on the water, we nearly had the place to ourselves.  It's just been too hot, the air too still, and no cloud cover to stop the relentless onslaught of solar energy.

Thanks to Jon (Bassbuddy) for the photograph!  Fun to fish along side him and his crew!

Fish on, fish H8 me.

I think I sweated half a bucket just reading this post. It was as if the heat was beating down on me the whole time. Barely a breeze, not hardly a ripple....that is a great line right there. Excellent hot summer post!
