Crappie Basics #139: Hot Days- Small Minnow

“Fish will suspend when it gets really hot but you can still catch a lot of fish. The fish might get right on to of the water whether it’s 4 feet deep or 14 feet. It can July at noon, sweat running and the bite is better than at early morning, totally opposite of what we usually have. One thing for sure that will improve fishing is to use small minnows. They are much more productive than mediums. Go ultra-slow and pay very close attention for a bite because it will be very light or a swim away. Use small line and a sensitive pole like a BnM BGJP.” …Ronnie Capps
