Hoover Reservoir is an excellent Ohio fishery. I took a client out onto the lake for a Summertime fishing trip. We caught a 19-bass mixed bag of Smallmouth and Largemouth.

* - We hit the lake early because of the Summer heat. We caught several bass on topwater presentations. Using: Zara Spook, Rebel Pop-R, Venom Lures Buzz-Baits, and the Arbogast Jitterbug.

* - When the morning topwater bite stopped. I had my client throw a variety of crankbaits I had tied on. We caught several offshore on the ledges near creek channels with the crankbaits.

* - Then as the heat of the day turned up. We ended up flipping and pitching the shallow visible vegetation and lay-downs.
