For some reason I seem to have to have the best luck with strike king red eye spinners on the hottest days

Soft plastics. Shad colored cranks. I fish the plastics in deeper water when it's hot. I usually run a crank that goes about 4-5 feet when retrieved. I slow it down when the temperature is really high.

If you're fishing morning, I've recently been doing well with a spinnerbait and a chatterbait in the later parts of the morning. Any where between 8-11am. Once the heat of the day comes out I slow roll the spinner or switch to shad cranks and fish them relatively slow. But plastics are a confidence bait for me, so if things are really slow I'll always make the switch.

I always start the early mornings useing a top water bait, there's no better way to wake up then having a bass explode on the surface. As the sun gets higher go deeper. Plastics will always catch fish, but for me cranking is the most fun.

1 - skitter pop's, spooks, buzz baits

2 - rattle-traps, square billed cranks, spinnerbaits

3 - t-rigged plastics (whatever looks good when I reach in my bag)

^^This. My two most productive baits in the summer have been, and continue to be, shad pattern crankbaits and T-rigged ribbon-tail worms in tequila sunrise, red shad, black and junebug. Early morning and late evening, top-water baits, especially Jitterbugs, can produce vicious strikes.

Texas rigged worm and creature style plastics, jig and craw, and spook type topwaters are all great summertime baits - if you are in summertime bass locations.

anaconda worms junebug 7 or 10inches, culprit worms firetails, tequila sunrise, shakey head with straight tail trigger x watermelon redflake, and never forget wacky worms i like yum dingers or senkos anything purple or green or mixed, and an xfactor bob n weave, pearl or something else bright.. i also like to troll a rattle bait to find schools, this has served me very well, i toss either a 1/2 oz or 3/4 oz spro aruku shad, or an xcaliber doesn't matter what kind, troll around points and drop offs with your trolling motor going on 3 to 4, i've got a 14ft jon boat not very wide and use a 35lb thrust.
