Honestly, I have only been fishing for the last few years.

I did fish a bit as a little kid up in North Iowa years ago, but as an adult, only recently did I start back.

I don't know a ton about fishing, and would never have guessed that excessively hot weather interferes with fishing in cold ponds. Once they go deeper, I'd surmise they'd still bite as normal.

I just thought I was terrible at fishing. I've still got work to do, but I still may take a year's break.

Cold ponds? You're in Richardson, tx right? What cold ponds are you referencing if you don't mind? As a general rule, once the temp gets in the high 80s or hotter, I would suggest fishing 2-3 hours during sun up or sun down. Overnight fishing is always an option in the hot days. Granted..you CAN catch fish in the middle of the day, but unless you can cast out to a very deep hole, it's simply better to fish at the coolest points of the day.

"but I still may take a year's break."

Wrong...wrong time of year to even think of that. The fishing season is just about to start! I'd say start mapping out where you want to fish, learn the structure, find your bank locations and get ready for the cooler weather which is going to turn the fish on big time. Cut bait, live bait, works good in the coming months.
