August fishing can be brutal. Air temperatures in most states are still peaking out an water temperatures are hot.
Tournament fisherman Donald Beckstrom from Kansas says, “Our Kansas lakes are 100 degrees in the Midwest where I fish. The typical patterns on my favorite lakes are trees in anywhere from 2 to 10 feet deep. Any nearby channel improves the spot. I’m single pole jigging the trees. One tip I recommend is that you and your partner fish different color jigs until you find the one that works.”
