Had a pretty good day Saturday, but they made me work for it. Surprisingly the bite didn't get good for me until after the clouds burned off and we had bluebird skies. Big fish was 5.5 and best 5 pushing 20#. All the fish I caught were built like tanks, they've been eating good.

How did you catch them? Were they tight to cover with the sun out?

Could not get them to eat a moving bait, ended up doing my damage on a jig tight to cover and weightless plastics.

Sounds familiar. I haven't been to Ray Bob in about 2 weeks now but the only moving bait bites were spots and the LMB bites were all pegged worms on timber, wacky or a slow c-rig over rocks. My buddy did manage to crack a 9#er in the timber so that was gnarly.

Saturday was rough. Yesterday wasn't bad. My son nailed a pretty good one on a chrome/blue trap in 6' on a secondary point.



Baitfish are really loading up in coves, but the bass aren't there yet. All the swirls on the surface are individual schools of baitfish.

Caught a bunch of dinks yesterday. Most on main lake points early on buzzbait, popper, spinnerbait and Biffle bug. Caught some later in back of creek on squarebill, small med crank and shakyhead. Only one keeper out of the bunch. Mostly spots, a few LMB.

It's proven to be a tough and often finicky lake. I expect that we are still dealing with some turnover considering the still warm weather and lack of cool mornings and/or rain. We'll see how it shapes up in the next few weeks but throughout my own limited experience and with the conversations I've had, late summer is a tough time on Ray Bob.

I was out there and got several small ones on a T-Rig Rage Craw in Okeechobee Craw color (I think) which is blue on one side and green on the other. Water temp was 72-74. Had one about 4 pounds that went into the brush and broke me off. I saw him though and had to be 4 pounds. He was in 2 feet of water on a laydown. I fished both sides of the lake and most of mine were on the West arm up towards the bridges. Also some in main lake points that were in less than 10 feet of water schooling. One chased a chatterbait and bit but I didn't hook him.
