i hit the water at 5 pm, dropped a few jugs in water that was calm and 91 degrees. Less than an hour later the wind kicked up and the heat did not. Saw a few boats and some jet skis. I drifted in the wind for about 90 minutes and did not get a hit. I ended up with one keeper on the jug and threw him back. I left the lake windy and the water was still 89 degrees. I think it is time to see what night fishing will bring. At least the sun will not be putting the hurt on you.

SK,
Thanks for the great advice. I bought some reflective tape yesterday and I have two spot lights ready to go. I will be fishing areas I am familiar with and have no intention of roaming around. If any other pointers come to mind, please share, I accept all pointers and suggestions.

12-ft drops on your jugs will do the trick.

I'd set a couple there & set other depths on the rest & then let tha feesh tell you where they wanna eat....
Then you can adjust all your jugs to at or near the depth you caught.....

Those cats are fairly easy to figure out if ya just listen to'em....

Thanks for all the depth advice. That is good stuff. Thankfully my jugs are already set at 3 to 15 feet and I can go as deep as 50 feet. I will monitor what depth I am getting the best attraction. It should be a full moon this weekend, but now the forecast may have some thunder storms rolling in. I hope the weather holds up because I am excited to go out there and night fish. Thanks again.

I see you already bought some reflective tape but I remember struggling to find some at a reasonable price. Just in case you need more or someone else needs some...I went to Harbor Freight in Humble. They have 2 inch by 30 feet for $9.99. Works great. Item # 66068. Not sure if links work here or not but here's the link to it https://www.harborfreight.com/2-inch-x- ... 66068.html

I found some luminous tape on Amazon. I will give it a try and let you know how it works. Thanks again for all the recommendations.
