Good Morning: Well not a bad day by the looks of things waking up. Sun was shinning and hardly a cloud in the sky. A touch cool but nice with temperatures sitting at…12.2 C | 53.96 F.
Forecast For Today: Fairly fine, possible showers early. Things will warm up some as the day progresses and humidity will be not so bad. Wind has died down to almost nil thus far this morning. So all and all a great day.
Bug Report: Great day to do almost anything outside, other than a few mosquitoes and deerflies bugging you once in awhile. But not so bad that one can’t enjoy mother nature to the fullest. Great time to go camping, hiking, fishing or what ever you choose to do. Enjoy the summer my friends it is moving on quite quickly.
Fishing Times: For those wanting to do some fishing today the old weather stick is saying that the best times to be out there will be from 7:30 AM – 11:00 AM. Then again from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM and one more time from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM. I give it a 2 fish rating out of 4 for catching them this morning. A 3 fish rating out of 4 for catching them this afternoon and a 4 fish rating for catching them shortly after supper. As you can see things are improving as the day progresses. Today I recommend a Hula Popper 3/16 ounce in weight with small size hooks. Once all hooked up, cast to within a foot or two of the shore line or a touch closer to lilly pads, stumps or other obstructions, as usually that is where the big ones are lurking. Soon as the Popper hits the water about two seconds later give it a quick tug, You will hear it pop. Then slowly bring it in. If no luck try again. If still no luck after ten or fifteen minutes, move on to another spot. No use wasting time in a spot where they aren’t. Oh and no added weight to your line, just the Hula Popper on its own is sufficient. Click Picture To Enlarge. The picture is a just a suggestion in colour, myself I would go for one a bit on the greener side. Good luck.
Around Town: Yesterday with the market taking place I found our store quite busy with sales. Was a great day for sure with folks out an about doing what they enjoy. Of course, weather could have been a touch warmer, but by the end of the day things did just that. Still not as busy as it has been in the past years, but not so bad that one can complain. As if that would do any good. So my friends I am off to thin out my tomatoes, as with all the rainy weather they have taken to growing tops. If not thinned, the tomato crop will be immensely reduced. We love tomatoes, so can’t let that happen. Only takes a half a day and well worth the work one has to put into it. Enjoy your day my friends.
In Closing, I Would Like To Wish You Well.
