Hard to fish in this repressive heat?

I live on a lake. I fish everyday for bass and panfish. I see them swimming in schools in the lake. This morning there was a school of 16 bass in the 2-3 lb. category cruising the shallows, probably looking for stray minnows. The temp here in TN for the last few weeks has hovered around 100 degrees.
Those fish aren't biting. At least not what I'm throwing. I don't know if it's just the heat, or oxygen depletion in the water from no rain, or the wrong bait, or maybe I'm wearing my hat wrong...
Whatever it is, it SUCKS!!!
Any ideas?

I've tried all sorts of baits. I end up using a small rooster tail, usually a chartreuse color, and catch the small bass/large panfish.

I'm going to try the jig-n-pig next time I go out.

P.S. - mealworm, nightcrawlers, and minnows have all been working well for me but I don't catch any whoppers with those baits. :rollsmiley:
