Lots of anglers refer to this time of year as the "Dog-Days of Summer." The phrase "Dog-Days" came from ancient Rome and had to do with the stars and the belief that Sirius, The Dog Star, caused summer to be a bad time of year. Regardless of what they thought in ancient Rome, summer is not a bad time to go fishing. While catching fish in the summer can be challenging, the fact is that there are still lots of fish to catch. Their metabolism is high due to warmer water, so they eat more. If we put a bait in front of them at the right time and in the right manner, they're going to eat that bait. Here are some things you can do to catch fish during the dog-days of summer.
