Maybe it’s time to zig instead of zagging. And always stick to the ABCs of summer fishing, as provided by Field & Stream: aquatic vegetation, bridges and current.
“In summer, bass need shade, cover, oxygen, and food, and the ABCs always provide that,” veteran tournament pro and Lake Fork guide James Niggemeyer told Field & Stream’s Steve Price. “In addition, aquatic vegetation and bridges have depth changes close to cover, and current in the back of a creek attracts bass from other areas.”
Here’s a sample from Field & Stream explaining why following the ABCs can lead to those hard-to-find, late summer bass:
Aquatic vegetation -- Holds forage such as crawfish and sunfish and provide cover, shade, and higher oxygen.
Bridges -- Cover, shade, and abrupt depth changes are always present; nearby rocks often hold forage.
Current -- Moving water produces higher oxygen, washes in food, and usually creates cooler temperatures.
