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.)
