We’ve talked about lots of different timesof the year to fish, and the time of the yearthat I spend a lot of time fishing especiallywith my kids and friends is in the summer. We don’t have any tournaments in the summer,but I spend a lot of time in Lake Okeechobeeand travel around the country enjoying thesummertime fishing. And I wanna talk a littlebit about that and kinda give you a few tipsto help you when you’re out in those dog daysof summer. In the summer time the water temperaturesare going to the highest there gonna be allyear, sometimes on some lakes you’re talking85, 90 degree water temperatures. So those fish first of all are gonna havea short feeding window, most bass in the summertimefeed first thing in the morning to about 9:00. And the reason for that is about after nineo’clock that’s when the water temperaturestarts to rise from their night time temperaturesup to their peak high time noon temperatures. And when that happens those fish really slowdown they don’t really seem to feed a lot,they kinda become a little bit more inactive. Another great feeding time in the summer isthe last couple hours in the evening, likethe last two hours that’s really good. Whenthat low angle of that sun, again, that’swhen water starts to cool off again and thesefish again will again start feeding. Becausein the heat of the summer those fish don’twant to feed all day long. Now where do I target, I target deep water. In the springtime I talked about fishing shallow12 foot or less. In the summertime I’ll doshallow stuff in the mornings and then movestraight out to the deep stuff. Because inthe morning time those fish will again willbe up this main lake points, up on docks andpockets but towards on the main lake. Thosefish wanna be relating close to that deepwater or those river channels that are inthe lake. Some of the baits I like to throw in the morningagain a buzz bait, I use it in the springI also use in the summer. Your first houror so in the morning in the summer time abass bait can be deadly. A walking bait againis very awesome. Those are the type baitsthat you wanna fish in the summertime. Then once the sun gets up water temperaturestarts to rise I like to go a little bit deeper. And what I like to do with that is go withthe shaky head like we have here and get outa little bit deeper with the shaky head oreven a big football jig like you have here. A big football jig works great. And anotherthing deep diving crankbaits, deep divingcrankbaits in the summer is way to catch alot of fish. Because those fish will get outthere in that open water and they will schoolup. The depth that I like to target in the summertimewhen I’m out deep is, say 15 foot being theshallowest probably down to 25 and even 30foot deep. And sometime on some lakes if yousee a lot of bait fish, out over those riverchannels, even if it’s a hundred feet deepbut there’s a bait fish on your graph or yousee sea seagulls diving in the morning youcan get out there a hundred foot of waterand it’ll be wolf packs of bass chasing theshad around. And top water lures, under spins,jerk baits, things like that, can real deadlychoice. So again in the summertime fish shallow inthe first couple of hours in the morning andmove out deep. See you guys.
