I'll try to sum it up quick ok, it was hotter than a fire cracker out there but I managed to catch 7 bass which is better than my last trip of only 2 bass. And would you believe that the best two fish caught on this trip were 4 pounders caught around the discharge area. I had surface water temp readings of 102 to 104 degrees in this area but still caught these guys in 20 FOW throwing a deep diving crank bait. I caught a few dinks here and there on the lake but the better fish were caught around the intake area throwing T/R 4 inch red shad color plastic. My average catch was in the 2-2/2 to 3-1/2 pound range. I was on the water for five hours and my face felt sun burned so I packed it up and got out of there. Over all I think it was an ok day for this time of year. Did I mention it was hot out there? I could feel the heat coming off the water, it even caused my glasses to fog up once. And this was around 2 pm. I could only fish the discharge area for a short time, leave and then come back fish a little more. Boy was I ever putting away some liquids too. Anything you do in this heat during the hotter months you have got to keep yourself hydrated.
