Wayne Sheridan reports: The lazy, crazy days of summer are here finally. Due to the warm temperature the past 2 weeks, many of the fish are sluggish and hiding in deep pool and tight to cover, especially bass. Look for deep water and slow presentations for bass during the day. They will hide in the weeds until it cools down. It is a lot of fun to use top water lures near sunset. For trout, the best bet is to hit the water before the sun rises. Once the sun hits the water the fish will shut down and go into hiding.
