    What are Ya'lls go to way of catching bass when it gets stupid hot on a summer afternoon?

    If you are talking when the sun is up high in the sky, I always flip into pads,reeds,floating hyacinth or anything providing shade and cooler water. Depending on how thick the cover, I punch with a 1-1/2oz tungston on a Trokar into real knarly floating mats like you find in Lake Kissimmee or I can go weightless in pads with *some* holes using Senko's or Flukes. I look for areas that are wind blown or have river current moving the water into the target area. Better have a 7ft or bigger heavy action on 65# braid (I use a fluorocarbon leader if the water is clean)

    Gotta hit hard and pull up QUICK or you'll get wrapped up

    Pretty much the same spots as Grizzl, but I like to fish the edges of those hyancinths and pads, figuring the fish will come out from underneath just as easy as they will bite something that lands on their heads. My key, though, is a big grape worm with no weight, either wacky rigged or Texas-rigged. I just want it to fall slowly and be in the strike zone as long as possible.
