How To Catch Bass When Its HOT! (Its Easy)

August 5, 2020 58 No Comments

Description


Its HOT!!! Let’s go fishing! If you know where to look you can catch a ton of Summer time bass despite the heat! Matt demonstrates where bass go on hot days, catches a bunch of them along the way, and gives critical tips on how their movements change as the sun moves overhead and the mercury rises. If you’re tired of struggling this Summer and want to know how to power fish your way to success, this is for you!

Summer success is all about targeting shadows. Of course you can pull up to a run of docks and find fish underneath, but are there other shadows you should be targeting? Today Matt targets a variety of shadows you’re probably overlooking. As the sun shifts across the sky the shadows come and go but if you know where to look, you’ll find hungry bass lurking. 

The key to success today was a combination of topwater and flipping/punching with creature baits. Matt was constantly adapting to get the maximum number of bites. He chose a popping frog over a traditional shape to maximize his time in the waning morning shadows. Next he adapted his creature bait selection to avoid short strikes. 

All of the baits used in today’s video are broken down below. We’ve also included links to Tim’s dock video, as well as the rods/reels Matt was using. We’ve even included a budget combo that can be used for frogging AND flipping. The links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.
