Should we slow down feeding when the water is hot?

I cant speak for everyone, but it seems my BG feed harder the warmer it gets. Surface temps in the mid 90s and they pile up on the bank waiting for me to come feed them. Today is a bit cooler due to the storm, but they were just as ravenous.

Its seems a shame not to feed them if they are eager to eat.
.10 surface acre pond, 10.5 foot deep. SW LA. The epitome of a mutt pond. BG, LMB, GSF, RES, BH, Warmouth, Longear Sunfish, Gambusia,Mud Minnows, Crappie, and now shiners!!...I subscribe!!

I agree. Let them get fat before winter.
