On hot summer days, just like us, sometimes bass are just looking for a place to cool down. In this on the water bass fishing class video, Pete Gluszek goes out in search of cooler creeks and streams, away from the steamy main lake water. Pete lists some things to look for when searching for productive creeks, like fish-eating birds. "The Dean" shares some tips for getting into silted-in backwaters and finding the creek channel. As Pete travels back in search of color water, he demonstrates using your Humminbird side imaging and thermometer to identify targets and find the cooler water areas. After locating a prime spot, Gluszek breaks down the area with a senko, jig and chatterbait with a variety of casts that offer access to the fishiest areas where bass like to cool off in the shade.
