Ray Roberts summer pattern is in full effect. its definitely a catch fest with how many little ones there are from the last two years. It seems to me the bigger fish are mostly on timber. I know a few people who have pulled some nice keepers from the brushpiles, but it seems the timber is producing a lot more keepers. Another reality that I'm just going to throw out there... Ray Roberts summer fishing requires minnows. It's just the reality of it. I can catch 100 little ones on a jig, but the big ones will rarely eat it. All I'm using right now is a minnow tipped on a jig hook. My best depths right now seem to be the 17-24 ft range. And a lot of fish have been 17-22 ft deep. Most days the bite is kid proof. The keepers were a little slower yesterday but I bet we caught 25-35 fish on our first two trees before 7am. You have to move. Keep moving and keep moving. Also I work my jig up. These fish won't really go after a bait unless it's within inches of their face. So you have to move it up or down and all around in the water column to better your chances of getting in striking distance. I was hoping to be a little more detailed in today's report because I've been getting asked a lot of questions at the ramp and through messages. I really enjoy getting to chat with everyone at the lake. I hope this report will help some of you guys out. Also, it's not my way or the highway though. This is just what has been working for me. I still haven't figured out a new method for posting pictures since Photobucket changed so no pics this week. Visit my personal or business page for pics! So this week I'm pretty busy but have random openings for half days or working mans. They always fill up last minute so here's what's available. Monday Wednesday and Thursday have openings for working mans trips. And I have Tuesday and Thursday and the weekend available for half day morning trips. Let me know if ya wanna go! Thanks guys! And good luck!
