Many times the shallow water guy has the spots by themselves just because the deep gets crowded with the off shore guys. Another thing about deep water in the summer is that rain seems to dirty up the deeper water longer during hard rains in the summer creating mud lines in the water that separate the deep and shallow.
There are certainly many reason to fish shallow in the summer and being versatile enough to try it has its advantages. These suit the carps more active lifestyle. The hunt for these bad boys starts in the early morning, or in the late evening if you prefer. Make sure you search around tree stumps, large rocks, or anything that offers shade, or some relief from the heat.
Catfish go for cooler, more oxygenated water to feed. If you have the option, rivers might be the best bet for easier catfish catching.
Get a topographical map of your lake. This is especially important in the summer because, as like the rest of the fish, bass go deep for the summer. A topographical map will allow you to know where the deep structures are and where your bass are potentially feeding. It's due to their inability to find them and even if found, to present, properly, the most effective lures. Obviously bass are in a comfort zone in what we might consider "warm" or even "hot" water. Think about that. Clearly there is a wide range of temperature and habitat within which largemouth can live, which includes feeding.
Not doing so is not in the cards for summer bass. Where they choose to reside and feed is the real "summer puzzle" the angler must solve when hot weather fishing. Secondly , all bass do not, in fact, move to deep water for the summer. Especially with natural lakes where there is ample aquatic vegetation. The popular notion that they do so to avoid the summer heat is simply untrue. Quite simply largemouth bass like heat.
And remember, deep is always relative to the structural characteristics of a given body of water. The body temperature of a largemouth bass in summer is "up" like that of the water. So too is its metabolism which in turn causes increased energy levels and active feeding to match or exceed its racing metabolism. In summer, the bass enjoys high energy which supports fast, powerful swimming needed to catch prey.
Now is the time to eat!!!!! If food is shallow , that is where some summer bass will be. They will primarily be there because that's where the crawfish, frogs, baitfish and bluegill will also be.
They can also be found under docks, stumps and laydowns.
