I’ve never fished Ray Roberts. Many of you on this forum have. Anyone surprised that there wasn’t an offshore bite for anyone? I know the lake is very high right now but I was surprised that there wasn’t someone on an offshore school.

My 2 cents are that that lake is usually barely wrapping up from the spawn at the time of year and the fact there just was't much bait or fish out deep. The only reason bass ever go deep is because the bait does and the reason the bait does is their food source does also.

Water temps 10-15 cooler than normal means bait is shallow and bass stay close to their food source.

just my 2cents

There were many anglers without cameras. I'm sure some were catching them out deep, that just wasn't the best pattern.

They never really locked in off shore last summer either. I mean some did, but it wasn’t like years past.

The lake is just weird man. Looks awesome, but fishes damn tough.

If it wasn’t for the first hour on Friday, we would have seen ever smaller bags.

Steve Kennedy definitely tried it day 3 because of what showed up on day 2 that he didn’t get in the boat. Losing that 8lber day2 afternoon had to be gut wrenching. That was a lucky bite cause he tried and tried on day 3 on offshore hardwoods to no avail. That’s a great pattern when the fish need more comfort from the dog days of summer. Water temps are not quite there yet for the offshore stuff and like Dougie Fresh said….fish will follow the food source, and that’s up in the flooded bushes right now.

I'm guessing most of the bait was up shallow in the trees and bushes so the bass follow them up there. confused 3

I was a marshal Saturday and Sunday. Sunday I was with Gussy (he loves to fish offshore). He said that there was no bait out deep at all. Water temps was perfect for the offshore bite but the fish population wasn't there. You had more chance to get more bites shallow. Both Saturday and Sunday my guys ran all over the lake and NOBODY was fishing deep. When we were up shallow there was bait EVERYWHERE. Just a thought.

I was sitting on the couch so in no way am I being " that guy". Kennedy was doing the right thing he was fishing those trees way too slow and there were spots just like that all over the lake . I know he hasn't been on the lake like I have so again, I'm not saying he should have known. He had the winning pattern but ran out of stuff and fished it way to slow in my opinion.

It sounds like some of the local hammers were on the lake this weekend. Any of y’all care to share your patterns?

The classic pattens were fish flooded bushes. It worked well the first 2 hours of the first day then it sucked because they ran out of fish. In my opinion I expected them to have mixed in some deep fish and some shallow offshore fish like Kennedy’s lost 8 plus. I think they saw the flooded bushes and just sold out to it because it made sense. In my opinion though they left a lot of fish out there primarily the big ones. I’ve never seen a school of em but one here one there deep is possible right now.

Why you think that is, I have never been able to find groups off shore either. Low fish numbers, lots of stuff for them to spread out on, lots of bait everywhere? One here one there is pretty accurate except when it's none anywhere lol

Just low fish numbers of old ones if I had to guess. For example we hit up I think 8-9 deep spots yesterday evening and only had fish on 3 and only had big fish off of 1 of those 3. Just a goofy lake hell Idk.
