Just curious, but what were some of the best patterns on Roberts this weekend? I fished 2 days and never really got on 3-4 lbers. I like the lake but it had my number this weekend. Just curious what other guys thought.

Primary pattern for me for the last few weeks Chatterbait and/or swim jig around flooded brush. Secondary bite, shallow crank around rock.

Needs to be "steeper" banks closer to "deeper" water. Thus, there can't be a lot of flooded cover for the fish to roam. You want to be able to reach/cast to the bank. That way the fish don't have a lot of places to hide.

They still seem bunched up. I can't just go down the bank or hit every creek or pocket and get bites. I may get 3-6 in one small area (25-50 yards). Then find another similar and get 3-4 more fish. It's been hero or zero and never the same creek or spot from trip to trip.

We had good luck with spinnerbaits in the wind and worms in calmer areas up in IDB past the bridge.
The wife had BB both days and it looks like weather pending we may have to go back next weekend thumb peep

My wife got hung up in a tree north of the bridge one day. My son also hung up in a tree. Got the son's out. He looked back and said "Mom you may be hung up but there is something on there" 5 pounder.
