In my area I would have to say c-rig. Another option would be deep cranks or maybe spoons.

I guess a person would need a definition of "deep" to answer the question properly. Personally, I'm fond of jigs w/ trailer for anything over 10 or 12 feet. Plastic worms and brush hogs for water up to about 15 feet. A lot of folks use deeper running cranks but I usually don't. Single bladed spinner baits bounced along the bottom have worked for me in deeper water also.

I've been fishing a 3/8 oz green jig almost exclusively so far this summer with some success. Sometimes deep, sometimes shallow.

you live in Maine.  What do you consider hot weather and hot water?

 I would consider 85 and over hot weather. As far as hot water, a surface temp of 75 to 80 plus. When I think of deep water I think of 20-45 feet of water.

Deep cranks, although I do really enjoy shakeyheadin' and big texas rigged worms.

C-Riggin main river ledges...preferrable the turns.   Tungsten weights are a must. 3/4 oz with a zoom trick worm.  theres something about feeling every single thing on the bottom with that tungsten.

Is everyone serious about fishing a shakyhead deep?  I have never thought to use a shakyhead in water deeper than 12 ft.  Are you using a heavy shakyhead something over ¼ ounce?  Usually when I am fishing deeper water I only throw a C-Rig, Jig, or Crank.  You have my attention with the thought of a shakyhead.  I love throwing them but like I said usually I stay pretty close to the bank with them. ENLIGHTEN ME!

Thanks Quan!  You know me bank banger.  When I do fish deep stuff (15-30) never considered hitting it with a shakyhead.  I am just trying to get my offshore game on point! Thanks again.

My absolute favorite piece of structure for finding larger than average bass would have to be an intersection.

Intersection Defined: Spots where two creeks intersect or where a feeder creek intersects with the main river.

Intersecting Logic:  Around the
”Y” created by the intersection are found multiple forms of structure such as channels, points, ridges, ledges, sharp drop-offs, slo
w tapering drop-offs, and humps all in one location.

The Best Intersections: Depths of 12-18' inside the
”Y” is my #1 attractant but this depth on all three sides along with timber and/or grass would be the prime example of a Honey Hole.


Fishing at the “Y”: With my boat positioned inside the “Y” (usually anchored) and casting from shallow to deep with Texas Rigs, Carolina Rigs, Swim Baits & Jig-N-Craws I'll find the bigger bass. In winter months fish these areas with Jigging Baits or Drop Shots in 20 to 30' of water.

I fish a lot of ponds so deep for me is usually 6-7 fow. When I do take the boat out on lake Wylie, where deep is probably around 15-30 fow, I fish alot of t-rigs, and jigs.

My favorite tech techniques for fishing the lake deep are fishing creek channels and main lake docks. I love dragging a jig too. That is one of my favorite ways to catch 'em. I love feeling them pick it up off the bottom after dragging it. Also, dragging it really stirs up dirt from the bottom which attracts bass.

I'm still very new to the LMB game.  Fishing the very upper end of a lake (Falls of the Neuse, Durham NC) where there really isn't any water over 15' or so, I'm finding hot weather fishing doesn't necessarily mean deep, but rather close to horizontal cover and unwilling to move far.

 

Finding success with all forms of slow plastics in 90F-95F surface temp waters.  Generally in 3' to 8' water with cover or shade.  Midday, morning or evening.

 

Clearly I may be missing the 'deep' fish but there isn't a lot of deep water in the uppers third of this lake.  Stay tuned.
