Beat the Heat!

6\12\16 Summit Lake

Today I knew the temperature would be the hottest it had been so far this year and I wanted to get up early and try to do some top water fishing!

One of my favorite lakes for top water if Summit, I like it because it has a lot vegetation and a variety of different shorelines to fish. I got up really early to beat the heat.  I was at the lake and just getting on the water around sunrise so I was able to get some good pictures!

The lake was very similar to the last time I fished it in that around the shore there was about 3-5 ft of clear water before the weeds started. So I started around the piers and threw a top water frog and immediately started catching nice 15-16″ bass. I fished two or three of the piers until the bite slowed a little bit.

Once it slowed down I switched to a plastic worm and threw to the same spots and started catching them again! It was a fast and fun morning, I only fished for a couple of hours before the temperature for into the high 80’s and I packed up.  I caught around 15 fish and all were between 12-16 inches!

Lake ranking: 5 star 

This lake has a lot of quality fish and is very well maintained! I would definitely recommend especially you plan on camping.FullSizeRender FullSizeRender FullSizeRender FullSizeRender IMG_4554 FullSizeRender
