Don't write-off the seemingly drained areas, particularly from midday until sunset when the shallow water has reached maximum warmth. As baitfish activity increases, so does bass interest.
Keep a selection of reaction baits handy to cover lots of water and quickly hit targets of opportunity — like feeding bass.
Lastly, keep your distance and stand still. Rocking boats send telltale pressure wakes toward fish that are already nervous about their vulnerable depth, so don't give them any more cause for alarm.
