A lot of anglers swear by big baits, especially this time of year. Big bass get a bit lethargic and would rather swim a couple of feet for a BIG GULP than swim around for an hour getting little bits and morsels here and there.
Go big or go home? Well, it may not be that serious, but big baits will catch fish. The easiest ones to fish slow this time of year are big plastic baits, like the ones shown here. Give them a try sometime. Big bass do bite in hot weather. You just have to be in the right place at the right time and have the right bait!
