How to catch specks in the summer

Any suggestions on catching specks in the summer?  We fish a lake that has a few brush piles but not many.   there is a small area in the middle of the lake that is 25'.  Also there is an area near shore that drops from 7' to 16' like a ledge.  It was dug out along time ago when a house was being built.

    You know , I've also wondered the same ? Had a guy tell me he caught more in the summer but didn't say how or where ?  I would think under floating vegetation or deep weed bed ?

    We used to sink Christmas trees in the deepest part of the lake (about 20'-24' deep) and fish it during summer for specs.  We'd fish live minnows lip hooked on jigs.  Just cast and let it sink down with no action.

    In north central Florida they are being caught in the flooded timber along the lake edges and in the bonnets MAINLY with grass shrimp. Hint - grass shrimp!!!!!!!
