    Usually try and stay out of hot weather, fat people sweat alot. LMAO But when I go I use stink bait for channels, get good results with that. Good luck on the water.

    I just caught a nice little flatie fishing mid day in the the arizona heat, i caught this nice blue gill and it started bleeding so i thought I'd hook him up before it died. I casted it in the deepest part of this hole i fish and in no time I caught a 8lber. I'd say fish the deeper water when the sun is up and hot. they will still bite but you must locate them during the heat, I don't think they are on the move in the hot time. you have to deliver the food to them. Fish On!

    On the Arkansas River, blues seem to roam in packs. While their roaming around seems random, they usually relating to some kind of structure, even when they're running shallow over deep water.

    Try and use very foul smelling bait when it's really hot out, I don't know what it is, but that heat just makes the stink smell even stinkier. Also, flatheads can be active during hot weather, that one in my avater was caught on an evening when it was about 89 degrees in July.
