    sorry I can't help . I am at high rock lake , the fish aren't biting good here and the yadkin river is down we fish up the river a lot . we have started running aground up the river where we fish. We went to Tuckertown last week and the water was so low we couldn,t put the boat in.

    Hey Nate, I would go early and come home before the extreme heat sets in. As far as bait use the same thing as any other time. I don't know what lake you are going to and whats in it. Let me know and maybe I can help more.

    I would stick with the shad, and if you can catch some bream or white perch, try them too. I've fished oak hollow only one time a few years ago, I was fishing for hybrid , didn't get any but did get white perch so I know they're in there. I think there are several channels in there, you good try some fresh shrimp too. Good luck

    humm good question I would hit the deep water and dropoffs, maybe even anchor up over a hole and put up the canopy top and kick back. if you anchor up i would use live shad on a carolina rig. or use a slipbobber rig to keep the shad off the bottom about 3'. good luck and welcome to the boc.

    Just do like most of us old folks do... when it's too hot, stay under the A/C! Go fishing in the evening and at night when the cool breezes make the great outdoors habitible again.

    There's lots of benefits to fishing at night that aren't so obvious during the day. The sounds of the night wind, coyotes, night birds and blessed silence. No traffic noise, no sirens (at last very few), no jerkbikes, no noisy kids and pure relaxation. Besides, the catfish usually come up to the shallows which make them easier to find and catch.

    Try it, you'll like it!

    I can't stand the heat...
    Night fishing...and early morning fishing is the best!

    Yeah, night fishing is a pretty good idea here in the heat of the summer if you can stand the bugs. But if you have to fish during the day bring the bimini top and the sunglasses. I don't think there would be any difference in the type of bait you're using just b/c of the heat. Use whatever works for you whether it's hot or not.
