Yesterday went to a lake that has produced for me since right after ice out. Lake always seems to have fish in basins from 18-20fow. Ok they come in to spawn but then they are back. Yesterday the surface temp was at 80 and my graph showed a thermocline at 15′. Looked at my spots that have been good and pushed in to 15′ and that was ok, got a few . So look for the thermocline in those dark basin lakes and go from there. That said with surface temps at 80 they can only push down to 15′ they really cannot escape the heat too much, so hang in there, expect a tough bite or switch to catfish!
