Bass fishing is fair and the water temperature is still climbing and with all these hot days, don’t expect bass fishing to get any easier. The good news is that good solid bass are still showing up. Continue to fish the deeper docks and try to focus on those located out on the main rivers or near deep water. Jigs and Texas rigged worms seem to be working the best right now. Another good area to pay close attention to is the submerged humps that are located all over the lake. Deep diving crank bits like the Rapala DT 10 and the DT 14 will work. Also try using a four inch worm or lizard on the Carolina rig on the humps too. Downsizing is a key factor during those hot summer months.
