Years ago when the weather got hot I would get in my float tub and flipper back and forth along the face of the dam dragging a Marabou jig. Caught a lot of Crappie and stayed cool.

It’s only hot if the fish ain’t biting. Cold has the same rules.

All I can say is I vote for whatever method can get you out on the water for a day.

A broad brimmed had, SPF rated long sleeved shirt, Glacier Gloves and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 100+ on all exposed skin. But, we still call it quits by 1 pm when the temps hit 90 degrees. :)

Darn it. Another hundred dollar bill. Crappie getting expensive. Thanks, though.

My kitchen is air conditioned. I live a comfortable life. I quit being a tough guy when I left Southeast Asia.

Wear a bathing suit and t shirt,top on boat, hook a hose to your circulate pump and wet your self down every hour or so

I've got a splitter on my live well pump. Turn off the live well side and have a hose attached to the other side. Great for washing slime out of the floor and I have a sprinkler hooked up to the hose. Look like an idiot with a sprinkler in the boat, but I'm cool. REAL COOL

pithon,that is what i was going to suggest next,how fine of a mist do it have?It's just a regular garden sprinkler. Like you get at wally world. It will not run a oscillating sprinkler though. When the boat fills up with an inch of water turn on bilge. Other benefit the floor of my boat is not burning the bottoms of my feet
