The fishing on Sam Rayburn is really picking up. Not only have I noticed a nice improvement in the fishing activity but most of the people I have talked to are all reporting better catches.
It has not gotten to the "easy" point yet but the fish will bite if you get around them. That being said, you might have to keep moving until you find them, but lately if I found 1 there more there. This seemed to hold up for both shallow and deep fish. The shallow fish that we have been catching are coming off of a variety of baits. Buzzbaits, Baby Chugbug, and Lucky Craft gunfish 95 are all working around shallow shoreline grass. Fish the buzzbaits in the windier areas and the others topwater baits in the calmer water.
Shallow crankbaits such as the Lucky Craft Flat CB SR and MR are working around shallow patches of grass and the MR is working well in the schooling fish too.
TX rigged worms and a Carolina rigged Kreature bait made by Yamamoto (redbugs and watermelon/gold) are still working around shallow hydrilla and pepper grass.
The deeper fish are being caught on the LC CB 12, DR, and MR (all Lucky Craft Crankbaits in American Shad). Some of the fish are coming on out of brushpiles, ridge drops, suspended in standing timber, and schooling over open water.
Carolina rigged Yamamoto Kreature bait and hopping a football head yamamoto hulagrub on points and breaklines is also catching some good fish.
With the cooler temperatures that should start showing up, look for the wacky worms and senko bite, Rat-L-Trap and LVR bite, spinnerbait and topwater bite all to start picking up.
