We tried going for some bass on Monday. We has no luck whatsoever. Tried multiple baits, from crank, to Carolina rig, to buzz bait, nothing. We finally gave up and started catching quite a few small brim, and a couple of Perch. I need a new spot. We always try to inlet next to the Old Weaver trail inlet. Any suggestions are very welcome.

Chum with highly oxygenated ice cubes. ;) Seriously it is gonna be slow til it cools off. You want to try and find the coolest spots in the area you fish. You will probably learn a lot about where to look for them if you pay attention to all of the little things like previous/current wind direction and speed (even overnight), incoming water volume & temp., lake level changes, Oxygen levels, bottom make up and water clarity.
When it is as hot & dry as it has been; you can bet if there is a flowing underwater spring in a lake it will be an awsome attraction to all sorts of fish. I'd guess that greater than 90% of the older fish are in less than 5% of the lake. Once you find them fish slow....fish verticle if they are real deep. (Drop shot a 4" wacky worm or fluke/ fin-s-minow etc.) Don't give up on them too easy once you locate a group. (Not likely that you will find more cooperative fish easily.)
