The dog days of summer take their toll on outdoor activities that slow or creep to a stop in the heat, fishing included.
But just because it’s hot on the water and the fish are less active doesn’t mean they’re not available for the taking. Expert outdoorsman Larry Whiteley of Bass Pro has some tips for finding and catching fish in the peak of summer:

Fish with a worm.
Fish a shallow shoreline.
Go night fishing.
