In spite of that North wind, we managed another good day. We caught our first 30 keepers at our first spot in ~1 hour. I don’t think we had a single short fish during that run. From there we fished another 3.5 hours and still needed 12 more to make a limit. We went back to the first spot and caught the last 12 in 20 minutes. The bite was as hard to detect as I’ve ever seen it. I think mostly due to the swells. Big fish was 14”, and only a couple over 13”. All on minnows today using 1/8oz chartreuse and pink jigs. I was surprised that all fish were caught at 18-24’. Much deeper than I would have guessed.

Bass fishing went great too yesterday. No toads, but they were eating. Plenty of clues in this pic =)

We got our butts kicked today up Pecan. Only managed 3 keepers hopping trees but it sounds like we weren’t deep enough. I was focusing on shallower water, around 10-15 feet. Fighting the wind was a whip.

Nice going TryHard! I was seeing some fish deep yesterday when I was out. I took my brother in law and we caught a few, maybe 20-25 but still got a lot of shorts, and only one decent one around 13", all on minnows too. Today...chores day so no fishing, but I'm caught up now and ready to go. Your post is encouraging. Do you think they are already stacking up deep? I may have to go check the corp piles next time I'm out.

@Flog-

I have no idea what these fish are going to do next. I honestly expected them to be up shallower.. The only reason we stopped at that deep spot was because we were literally going right by it, and I wanted to confirm they wouldn’t be deep today. I was wrong.

We were both thinking the same thing then. Finding a big school in 1 spot in deep water was not the plan.

Nice report. Glad to know they are starting to school up in those big groups.

Wow you guys did great! I only managed 9 keepers yesterday on jigs fishing a similar pattern in the on the western arm of RR. Did you guys happen to try straight jigs or are minnows required?

I tried several different jig trailers and only caught 1 short fish. I was out of the curly tails, but I feel like I would have caught more if I’d had some. Who knows though.. The bite was Very** subtle.

Ditto - threw several jigs before putting on the minnows. No bites and with the minnows even, as TryHard wrote, the bite at times was almost imperceptible.

We only managed 8 Sunday all on minnows. That wind made it un-fun. Skipped Saturday as the weather reports said windy Saturday calmer Sunday. Wrong yet again. Tried to find a spot out of the wind. Found a submerged tree in 22 fow that had some big fish moving in it. Dropped a minnow and nothing was interested until one decided to hit. Game on. Got him to the surface long enough to see it was a bass probably 5-6 lbs just before it snapped my line.

Just moved to area trying to learn Ray Roberts. This was my third trip to the lake (10/8). Beautiful day, lake looked great. Tried trees first, caught 3 short fish all from 12 feet, nothing deeper or shallower. Moved to short FM3002 bridge, caught one short fish off the most shallow post. Last but not least found a BP in 12-13 feet of water. Managed five keepers and a number of short fish. Beginning to think lake is a brush pile (if you can find them) type of lake at least this time of year. Will be going back spending some time with electronics zeroing in on brush piles. I'm also wondering what the spring spawn holds for Ray Roberts.

We got on the lake about noon yesterday 10/9. Went to a tree that normally holds some better fish and found nothing. Went to a tree that always has a wad of fish it was loaded with fish but all 10 inch fish caught quite a few but no keepers. Moved over to the west side and had a hard time finding keepers came up on an isolated tree and it was on like donkey kong. Tree was loaded with big fish that were right on the bottom in 22 FOW but only on minnows but after missing a couple and losing one on a hang up they shut off. Finished up the day on a row of trees that were holding some even bigger fish but the wind came up about an hour before sunset but we managed 6 fish all over 13 inches. These fish were all tight to the tree at 13 feet in 18 FOW. We had a good day but we still are not seeing a limit but lots of 10 inch fish.
