Fishing in very warm weather?

Recommended Posts

It depends a lot on where you live, 95 degrees is pretty much the temperature we have where I live most of year.

Tactics depend on the weather conditions, clear blue skies no clouds = deep, cloudy skies = shallow.

Here in AZ I fish temps +100 a lot, in fact last night it was 110F until the lightning came in at 5:45.  I agree with Raul.  I also go with lighter colors if it is clear and I work any shady areas hard including overhangs, docks, docked boats etc.  Toward the evening I start the darker colors.  Go slow.

We are also instore for alot of 95+ temps this summer.  Pretty much what has been said and early morning and night fishing.  Lily pads, are always good, any cool water inlets, creek chanels, and bridges pillings (how ever it's spelled).

Look for current that will bring cooler water, food, and oxygen to the fish. Like others have mentioned fish the shady side of cover.

In my neck of the woods the 95 degree temps also bring lack of rain which means lack of current.We usually go deep on ledges and humps with a jig-n-pig,11 inch worm,or a tube.Depending on the fishes positioning we may drag it,bounce it off the bottom or do what we call stroke it(which means to make it jump off the bottom).I usually look anywhere from 10-25 ft. of water.Baitfish plays a big role also.

In the summer here in Florida I fish at night alot. I like to use dark Jitterbugs and the old Devils Horse close to overhanging trees.

In the heat at night and low light early mornings the bass are near the shoreline ambushing the baitfish. As it gets lighter they move to deeper cover then when it gets to dusk/low light condition in the evenings their back again in the shallows.  During the day its either heavy weighted carolina rigs or heavy jigs from a boat to break thru the weeds and heavy cover to get them in the deeper water.  Early mornings it can be topwater, crankbaits and weedless rigged flukes and worms ect. over the weeds its what the condition is where your fishing too.                            BigBill

Channel fishing is the key and trolling the deep cranks in deep water, carolina-riggin, rat-l-traps im pretty sure you will catch your fish in 10ft plus water.

Like the others have said it depends on where you live, but I'll add another caveot.  What type of water do you fish, highland lake, lowland lake, natural lake, or river?

If you fish a highland lake, deep and clear, Bull Shoals, or Table Rock for example.  Then you'll need to focus on structure in deeper water, and or night fishing.

In a lowland lake, not as deep, and not as clear, Millwood, and Grand Lake for examples, focus on heavy cover.

In a natural lake....it will depends on the lake, and the conditions that the lake presents.

In the a river...the channel and structure will be the main factors.

The answer would be directly relative to where you live. What works in Florida doesn't necessarily work in Texas.
