Summer Fishing Tips
It seems tough to keep fish off your line during the spring, but summer can be tricky thanks to warm waters and fish that are busy spawning. You can still catch a record breaker if you know where to look for them, and how to lure them out.
As the waters begin to warm up in spring, fish head closer to shore to feed; but, as the temperature rises further, they seek cooler, more oxygenated water. Fish like bass and crappies like to hide under docks to beat the summer heat. Try using a bobber to float bait in front of them, or a skip cast to slide a worm under the dock. Don’t be afraid to cast under a tree or in the grass where bass like to cool off and wait for an easy meal.
Saltwater fish like stripers, prefer cooler waters too; search near drop offs or pools. Dawn and dusk during a new moon are prime feeding times for summer saltwater fish. During the summer, big flounder like to hide in the troughs formed by shallow wash. When they hide here, flounder are patiently waiting for a tasty shad or forage fish to swim on by.
This summer, finding the fish is half the battle. Now you know where they are, so all you’ll need is the right tackle.
