I fished Ray Roberts Monday and thought I would give a little report. Seeing as I'm not really a bass fisherman per say, this is just an excuse to post some photographs I shot and the "information" I give is probably useless, but here it is anyway. I started off fishing Johnson Branch, hitting the rocky shorelines that the wind was blowing into, with a green/white clouser. I hooked one fish that felt pretty good but lost him before I got a look. I hooked a solid two pound spotted bass that jumped and spit the hook and I had several bumps that I suspect were dinks and/ or bluegills.
I ran to Chaparral cove and fished the points on the outside but the wind was out of the wrong direction. Did get a strike but didn't hook him.
Next, I fished around the mouth of Indian Creek, trying to fish any rocks I could find with the wind blowing into them. I lost another fish that felt good and had a couple of dinks chase the fly to the boat before I finally landed a largemouth. I fished a popper some but only got hit by bluegills ( too small to fish for or I would have switched to a smaller popper). Didn't see any birds working and not much baitfish. Rode around for a while looking for surfacing sand bass - nothing.
I've been working on a "fall fishing compilation" video and I did get some clips to add. The only problem is, I've got some good shots of birds, deer, wild pigs, leaves turning and ducks, but not much in the way of fish...
Anyway here are some shots I took while pretending to be a bass fisherman.
