Back in my hay days it was 5+ days a week beginning in 1989 after an accident at work that layed me up in a hospital for 7 months and 9 surgeries to put my body back together with steel pins and Mylex Mesh. When the doctor released me he told me I was done working and told me to go fishing so I did. 5+ days a week and someties more. I did that from 1990 through 2013. If I was not fishing I was making baits to go fishing. It was about 1999 that I was having issues with heat and being out on the lake. Doctor told me that the medications I am now on require I stay out of direct sunlight but I could go in early morning and all night after about 7Pm in summer. So I focused on learning to night fish and equipt the boat for night fishing. In 2013 I fished a night tournament on Percy Priest Lake with son in law and on the way home I told him to take the boat home with him. He said why and I said I think I'm gonna rest for a while. I didn't fish again or step foot back in the Skeeter till Spring 2016 and that was to fun fish and I think I went about 15 times that year and then this past summer I fished a lot at night with son in law or a friend and I plan on doing more in 2018. Just had New carpet put in the Skeeter, new headlamps, son in law bought new LED black lights for it that fit in rub rail and had complete LED lighting put on Skeeter. Got more lights than a Christmas tree!!......... Motor was gone through 2 years ago and had new power head put on rather than building old one. So i'm looking forward to 2018 and being able to post some trip results here.

You should just get you a pontoon with a top to keep you out of the sun!! Or build something you can attach an umbrella to you!  haha Or just stick to night fishing, it's probably better then anyways!

Well in all honesty Port33 I have really developed a liking to night fishing and enjoy it more than daylight now. Now boat and Jet Ski traffic ecxept for other bass or fishing boats and normaly the wind has laid down and temps have cooled off and it is actually very pleasant fishing at night!!!
