Try fishing for bass with dark colored artificial worms, live shiners and weedless lures. Fish deep water holes with deep diving crankbaits during the heat of the day. Redear sunfish (shellcracker) will also spread out to deep holes in the lake as their spawning run ends and the summer heats up. Try fishing for redear near the bottom of these holes near structure with worms.

Bass in the Weeds

on July 23rd

Largemouths really slow down during the summer heat, so early morning and late afternoon fishing are best. Along the weedlines you'll find bass hookable by artificial worms and live shiners. Look for deep holes during the heat of the day, as the fish go down when the water heats up. Bluegill are spawning, and you can count on the catfish to continue biting, even in hot water.
