Fishing Tips and Techniques

Guided fishing trips for largemouth bass, white bass, catfish, crappie and sunfish are quite popular in Ray Roberts Lake.

catfish-478181_960_720The lake has many good spots where you can fish for largemouths. During the spring and fall, Largemouth bass angling seems to peak. If you like to fish for trophy bass, February and March are the ideal months to go fishing on the lake. When fishing for colder months, the best bait is a jig or a jig and pig combination and fish slowly around deep submerged points. In spring, a Carolina rigged worm will do the trick for you or a rigged lizard. You can go to shallow waters on the man flats between the isle de Bois Creek and feeder creeks. For summer vertical jiggling will help you with your catch, in the acres of standing timber. If you opt to go fishing in a fall, the best baits are: jerk baits, crank baits and spinners, though the most excellent choice is white spinner bait.

The white bass fish is best to catch during the spring when the spawning run-up tributaries. The summer is also a good season because the bass often schools in the main pool away from the dam. The white bass also abounds in this lake. The choice of bait for these fishes would probably be surface baits, spoons, minnows and jigs. Another fish you’ll catch during the summer is the catfish. For a catfish, your bait must be: cut bait, stink bait or shrimp. To catch some crappie, fish during the winter season, using jigs and minnows. Sunfishes, on the other hand, will are attracted to live earthworm baits.
