    Hey, just a quick tip. I recently picked up a 6' beach umbrella @ wal-mart for $10.00. Just place it in an empty rod holder or some other secure place and you have a cheap alternative to the $$$$$ bieimi tops. It folds up and is easy to store. Anyone else have a way to beat the heat?

    It so hot, I think even the heat melts lol. The only thing I know is try to anchor up in the shade if you can.

    I got one of those for the wife last year.
    I let it go with the boat when I sold it but I'm going to go back to Colorado soon and buy my uncles 24 ft pontoon boat and it already has a top on it.
    Yes that is a good idea.

    I just get used to it.

    After getting used to living without air conditioning when the high temps were running over 135 F I figure I can get used to almost anything here in MO.

    Not quite... The noodling you are talking about is illegal in MO except for a VERY short season and in one or two rivers during that season.

    I got used to the heat while living with no air conditioning in Incirlik Turkey. Highes of 135+ and humidity was usually 90+.

    I did the same in Phoenix AZ too.

    That does help... More square inches of skin per pound and no insulation. Heck... It drops below 75 right now and I am grabbing my long sleeve shirt. Turkey was worse... I was grabbing a blanket at night because 90 was COLD.

    The best way to avoid the sun is fish at night like me. :big_smile:

    I have been doing that more often, but not because I can't stand the heat. The fish haven't been biting around here til the sun goes down and stop when it comes up.
