Most people don't Realize how much stress that they put on bass in the summer months. Hot water ,boat traffic, and a whole list of other factor can turn what you thought was a winning sack of bass to you going home with your feeling hurt due to dead fish ! In the Summer month put your aerators on recirculate what that will do that will allow you to put ice in your livewells and cool that water down and you won’t be pumping in any new hot water ! Buy plenty of Ice sometimes it may take 2 or 3 bags to really get that water temp to a comfortable state for the fish !
I encounter anglers, all over, who think that pros rely upon some deep, dark secrets for catching bass on the tournament circuit. Well, there are no magic potions or quick-fixes for catching bass, but there are systems and methods that we use to consistently catch fish. Because we're on the water so often and fish such a variety of water, we're confronted with a new challenge nearly every tournament. Through these experiences, we've learned to adapt quickly to water conditions and the mood of the fish. In most cases, we still work within traditional systems and methods. But paying close attention to details is what enables us to refine our fishing efficiency. This has helped me be successful, and it's an aspect that will help you improve as well.
