More heat, and more fish. Yesterday I had the opportunity to bass fish at Memphis SRA, a place close to my home that once shared more than 200 bass with my father and I during an afternoon largemouth trip many years ago.
Yesterday, however, did not produce numbers of fish. Instead, it produced quality. With water much more murky than most Nebraskans care to fish, Dad and I felt right at home, bouncing from point to point in our john boat and catching bass that averaged about 2.5 pounds apiece. Because we can rarely fish a crankbait in Nebraska during the summer, we took full advantage and kept frog- and minnow-colored options on the entire time. Below are a few fish that were caught, and more reasons to not give up on summertime bass fishing, regardless of the temperature.
