With water temps now at 90 and air temps over 100 fishing from 6-10am is about the only time during the day to fish. I have found that in that very early time of the morning the bass are roaming on the flat points looking for crawdads and I’m catching those fish using a very small tube with a 1/4 ounce head and 8 lb fluorocarbon line. The best colors are green pumpkin or my favorite PUKE.
I’m keying on the top and side of the point closest to a drop . And before the sun gets up to high they are in 5 feet of water.
And at times you can see them swirl after baitfish or small blue gill so keep a small top water handy. Good luck.
