The first half of July has been hot, wet and muggy. The bass have been especially aggressive with 4 or 5 over 5 pounds caught this week. The higher and warmer water in Newboro Lake has kept them shallow later than usual with an excellent frog bite in the pads and grass mats. Smallies have attacked wacky worms with a vengeance along weed edges in the ten to fifteen foot range. Gotta love summer bass fishing!
