Hot afternoon washouts

Anyone have suggestions for catching in the afternoons in this miserable heat? My schedule has precluded early morning trips when I usually catch fish this time of year, the last three trips out mid-late afternoon I'd swear the bay has been devoid of fish . I've tried deep water, shallow water, you name it. Nada . Water temp of 90 must have the fish as lethargic as i feel.

If you have a good anchor and know how to use it (and if you are seasoned to handling strong currents), go to SLP and fish from the downstream side of the bridge on a moving tide with heavy enough lures or terminal tackle to get to the bottom. Fish in 6-8 feet of water, getting close enough to the bridge to cast beneath it. That would be my August approach if I couldn't wade shorelines at sunrise

Hint soft plastics over waist deep grass beds and shallow grass shorelines late evening schooling reds. Low water has played havoc this week but still in there.

Mirrolure 17mr has been getting bit by trout for us in the late afternoons. If there is bait and water movement, they are there.

Fish at night. Cooler, less boat traffic, better fishing. Grab you some shrimp, croakers, mud minnows, crabs, etc etc or cast net for whatever in end your net. Find some form of structure...reef, gut, pilings, whatever. Rig up one rod with a Carolina rig and fish on bottom with live bait. Rig up another with a popping cork or your favorite artificial. See which works best then enjoy the solitude and good fishing.. One other thing that I always think is cool: During the day you will get visual clues and signs aka sight fishing. During the night its sound fishing. Listen....then drop your trolling motor and head toward the activity. If you've never fished at night your missing out....big time!

Hot afternoon washouts

When fishing deep water, try drop shot rigging with your live bait and fishing vertically. Drop shotting enables you to bump bottom with the weight and probe the depths and it reduces some hang up issues as your bait is never lying in the hang ups. Perfect for probing ICW ledges, fishing next to bridge pilings, deep holes, etc. Use a heavier weight than you normally use to counter the current. Don’t anchor up, use the trolling motor and move along the ledge or structure and bump or crawl the bottom with the weight like it is a jig.

I agree with focus on reds this time of year. Lately the daytime bite has been hindered by the lack of moving water and lower tide levels. Fish that late afternoon outgoing for reds, or like Reed said hit the pass bridge for the outgoing.
