I fish Ray Roberts often. Last year the lake had an incredible spawn. I am all about catch and release too. I just wanted to get some opinions if it is BENIFISHLE to harvest, especially smaller bass in this situation

Yes, so long as the fishery is at or above carrying capacity/acre, or there is a break in the food chain resulting in tons of 13" and smaller fish that are skinny.

Sure it good for the lake for the most part.

I don't know where you live, but in D/FW area most everyone is catch and release for bass, unless they are out looking for meat.
