Update: July 8, 2012

You'll find the dog days of Summer in full swing. As nice as Summer can be, it's not always the best time for fishing. Hot trodden sun-filled days give way to game fish seeking cover and cubby holes where ever they can. Game fish will almost always be entirely secluded among weed beds and any kind of structure, seeking shelter from heat penetrating summer sun-rays.

So how do you fish for them?  First off fish during the hours of dawn and dusk... use full-lit daytime hours scouting for game fish haunts and hideouts. Locate weed beds, and follow the sharp contour substrate to deep water drop offs. During the heat of Summer, you've got to fish for them deep. 

Due to increasingly high water temps, full sun light penetration and the comfort of their hidden sanctuaries, game fish are not going to chase anything down if its any struggle for them to get it.  You're going to have to put your presentation almost in front of their jaws.

Use crawlers and live bait such as leeches and crayfish and fish them slowly, slightly jigging baits off the bottom substrate- and as close as you can get to any weed areas, drop offs, sunken islands, undercut banks and structure such as downed trees and fish cribs.
