Fishing Tip: where to fish in hot weather

June 21, 2007 by John - No Comments


When it’s been hot for a prolonged period, fish shy away from very shallow water. The reason: flats and other skinny-water areas heat up more quickly than deeper water does. Fish shallow areas early/late in the day, but if the sun is high and has put a pall on the action, consider deeper, cooler spots (or at the least cuts and channels adjacent to shallow flats or bars) until things cool down. A few inches can make a difference, so try cuts and channels along flats, as well.
