The sun’s hot. The air’s hot. The dock’s hot. The boat’s hot. The water’s hot. We’re hot. And, the smallies are hot. Because of all that, most writers and anglers are talking about deep baits. The popular theory is that the fish are holding deep and that they are lethargic. It follows that we should fish deep with something slow, something like a jig, Texas rigged plastic or maybe a drop shot.
