Try topwater lure's at sunrise for bass on farmpond's. Use these along weedline's. DEADLY!!!

On the bigger lakes here in Missouri, we fish deep in the summer time. By deep I mean about 20 feet. Main lake points with big deep diving crankbaits works well in the summer. Finding flats in the lake is another good tactic. Bass will push bait fish up onto these flats to feed. Try throwing a Carolina rig on them. If the fish aren't active up on the flats, you might try working the drop offs or shelf along the edges of it. Throw your deep diving crankbaits along the edge of it, or a texas rigged plastic worm.

These are just some very basic techniques and somewhere to start. Good luck.

From my experiance I find that you catch more bass ( small mouth ) on soft plastics, banjo minows, shimmy shad, worms, etc... but the other lures work well also, as has already been said. Talk to some of the local guys and see what they are using. Have fun and good fishing.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.

Gooseboy, Wal-Mart sells hard back books in the hunting/fishing section that shows all the metioned baits and rigs and how to use them. Not only for bass, but they also have books on other species of fish to include hunting as well. These often overlooked books are a GREAT source of info. I picked up one on trout and fly fishing. Lots of great pics and tips on techniques. Good luck.
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?
