Just curious as to what everyone is using this year in August. Its hot and the bite is getting tough. I myself use a strike king spinner bait in a midnight special color with a small swirl tail jig as a trailer. I have better hook up ratio in the evening hours than in early morning. What has been your experience?

I've found myself going small right now. Small jigs, 3 1/2 inch craws, small swimbaits, finesse worms. It's the best way for me to get a bite.

One cool bait that's been unusually productive for me is this: Megabass Drunk Fly It's been a hot little producer lately.

I fish shallow with finesse baits. Smaller jigs (3/16 - 1/4 oz.)with smaller craw trailer, smaller beaver baits and Rage Bugs Tex-posed with 1/8 oz. weight, finesse worms on shaky heads, and smaller (1/4 oz.)Booyah Pad Crasher hollow frogs. I start early mornings and fish this way until about 11am, focusing on shady areas.

I wonder what using live bait on a drop shot would produce
