NEW YORK (AP) — When the school year ends a few weeks from now, millions of kids will head off to sleepaway camp for a summer filled with color wars, kayaking and bunk life. Most will have a great time, some will make friends for life, and many will look back on the experience fondly.

Summer fishing is in full swing. Throughout the Midwest, spring-like fishing patterns held on longer than normal due to colder-than-usual weather. Largemouth bass and crappies were spawning later than they would in most years, and walleyes stayed shallow in many bodies of water farther into the summer. Now though, fishing is the way it should be in the summer. If you want to consistently catch fish in the summer, you’ve got to find them.
