  • Hot Weather - Slow Bassin'

    The dog days of summer can be rough on bass anglers. Scotty Harrington is usually in class or at work in the cooler morning hours, so he waits for evening to go after largemouth. 7 p.m. is not too late for him to just get started, and he likes to fish until dark. 'It's just too hot before then, and anytime I've gone earlier, I don't catch anything,' Harrington said as he tied on a Texas-rigged plastic worm in a Lee County farm pond earlier this week.

    A few minutes later, he was pulling in one of a few nice pond bass he caught before nightfall. Other summer tactics he uses include topwater lures and throwing hollow-bodied frogs in clusters of lily pads or aquatic weeds.
