Sam Rayburn has been coming back up slowly with the rain we have been getting each week. “Big Sam” is looking good this year. The fronts and the rain has kept the water temperature in the mid 70s.    there is a lot cover in the water from the buck brush to Hay grass ,pepper grass  and hydilla for the fish to hide in.  There were some fish that spawned, but did they all spawn? I still see males up shallow staking out beds and at times see a few balls of fry.  With the water temperature in the mid 70s any that are still trying to spawn would not need to so shallow.  We had some small fish schooling in the shallow chase shad so be ready for them.We had been catching some fish up in the new vegetation on Senko’s and Wacky worms.  In some of the pockets it’s still a little spotty but has been improving with better  fish this week.  Some fish have hit on Spinner baits and lipless crankbait’s over the grass and around the edges of the brush.  Those that need to get away from all the pitching in the brush, casting in 4 to about 10 foot has shown good results. The points and ledges around the spawning pockets have been giving up a few fish on Carolina and Texas rig. The deep bite has been slow but should improve in the next few weeks. Things are starting to look up around here. Hopefully Big Sam will get back on track and start producing the fish it is so famous for.


Big Bass Splash

Everyone will be hoping for a huge bass to weigh in at the Big Bass Splash.  Things are going to be different than last year with the water closer to normal and vegetation.  It’s time things start to look up.   If you haven’t been on the lake in some time you better get out here and get to fishing.  You  will  find that in the  hunt for a big fish a lot has changed.

Remember the Sharelunker Program entries started on October 1 and runs thru April 30th. If you haven’t heard, it encourages anglers who catch a 13 - pound- plus largemouth bass to lend or donate it to the TPWD for spawning purposes. There are some great benefits doing this and one of them is that the angler receives a fiberglass replica of the bass. There is a 24- hour pager at 1-888-784-0600 Check out the Program rules at their site along with the Benefits. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/visitorcenters/tffc/sharelunker/

Crappie;   Crappie have been stacking up out there and we have had some good days and caught pretty good crappie. The wind has been the biggest problem but things should start to settle down as we get a little farther into the summer patterns. The new pontoon has plenty of room for everyone so get your group booked for a spring crappie trip.

Lake level today 162.97
 “Big Sam” is looking good.
The lake level is holding its own.   The Hydrilla has been making a comeback in the middle lake area.   A few of the pockets have been warming up to high 70s with the sunshine. Covering lots of water this time of year is key in finding and catching lots of fish.   Fronts will push through and cool things down then they will warm up after a few days.  We still seeing a few males up shallow holding to spots along with see some fry moving around.  This gives the angler lots of chances to catch a Trophy. Is the Spawn over that’s a big question this year  as I can say I caught fish with bloody tails on them.  These fish have seen lots of baits from the tournament anglers so you’re going have to do something different and improve your game to catch them.
There will be a lot of fish hanging around the grass lines.  Senko’s and wacky worms will catch a fish off the grass lines and back in the pockets for the guys that want to fish slowly. Now for all of you hard core fishermen, try Stanley Spinner baits and Traps.  Use them to cover a lot of water, working the points and grass lines back into the pockets.  There will be lots of grass in the back of the pockets and fish will hide making it hard to get them out.  Don’t get stuck using one bait or one color.  If you’re not getting bites change something. The points and ledges will be holding some nice fish and the C/R or T/R along with a jig will catch some.  The old Lizard is a hard one for them to turn down. You aren’t looking for a lot of bites, just the big one. You’ve got to fish hard and be patient.  These fish will hold in small groups and when you find them it can be awesome.
Trophy Bass
The chance of catching a Trophy Bass is greatest from now till the end of the spawn as lots of fish are up shallow. The moon has a big part in this and most folks fish the hardest on the full moon. The next chance will be when they lock into their summer pattern.  Don’t wait too long to get your trips booked.
Gift Certificates
Don’t forget we have Gift Certificate for special occasions. They are good for a year so they have plenty of time to schedule a date.


Crappie;
 The Crappie are moving back down river and a few have been making their way in the pockets with some moving out to the brushpiles. We have been catching 75 to 100 crappie on the last few trips. Come on and get your trip booked. The pontoon has plenty of room for everyone with shade and a Pot - O – potty. So don’t wait too long, grab the kids and have a blast.

Sam Rayburn has been awesome the last few weeks with the top water bite kicking off.  There's been a lot of schooling bass over the main lake making for some great action for everyone.  Make sure have a spoon or a Blade tied on. The pads and grass areas have had some monster chasing bait and the frog has been getting lots of action.

Sam Rayburn is at 164 .53 ft just over full pool.

Bass;

Awesome is the word for Sam Rayburn this year with the water just over pool and lots of buck brush. There is what I call hay grass on the points and down the banks that has 2 to 4 foot of water under it.   The bass have been moving in there waiting for March.  I seen water temps from 55 to 59 in some of the pockets and have caught several big fish moving in.  There are a lot of male bass up shallow and this is making for great action for everyone.  Lots of flipping and pitching this year. Strike Pro Lipless crankbaits and Stanley Spinner Baits have been some of the best baits to cover a lot of water looking for active fish.  Now for the ones that like a little slower pace and love soft plastics.  The Doodlebug by E2Bait Company has shown it will catch fish when flipped on top of the grass,  pulled off the edges or used on Carolina Rig off the deep ledges.  The feel of the fish picking that bait up then setting the hook is awesome.  The best deep bite has been from 8 to 20 ft off points and creek channels.

Crappie; The Crappie fishing has been on and off as they move back down the river ready to spawn.  Catching the crappie as they move in can be tricky but if you get lucky you can have a blast filling the cooler.

White Bass ; The white bass have been biting with larger females being caught in some  areas. If youre looking for great action and hard fighting fish these are the ones.

Get you trips booked now as the dates are going fast.


 Bass Cats are not just good looking they are built tough and can put on some speed.  Get on down to Bowden Marine for a new BASS CAT. If you havent taken a ride in one nows the time. Give Bowden Marine a call at (281) 441-7773 or drop by and visit them at 3000 Atascocita RD Humble TX 77396.  Get down there and check the little honeys out then let them know I sent you. Good Luck.

Lake level today 161.31
 Big Sam is looking good, only 3 ft low.
The weather has been on the warm side keeping the water temperature a bit warmer and the grass has been doing great.  The pads have been disappearing slowly. There have been a lot of days that were to prefect not to want to be on the water. Each day is different and you can catch 50 one day then two the next but sometime Ill take to two big Trophy Fish .  Sometimes those two fish weigh 18 lbs. You cant do that sitting at home.

The grass bite is the ticket this time of year and everyone knows it is trap time, so get your traps out and start fishing.   Dont forget about a Stanley Spinner bait to cover the grass.  I have seen days they eat up a Spinner Bait over the grass. These two baits catch lots of fish all through the year.   There are different techniques that improve your chances of catching bigger fish.  Dont get stuck with just one speed of crank and wind, change up now and then.  The small crankbait pulled along the grass edges and creek channels will be picking up a few fish. Chrome, White and Chartreuse are a few colors to start with. Lots of fish will be moving in and out with each front that goes through.  You have to keep checking the points and staging areas as they will load up with fish then empty again. There will be a lot of fish looking around the shallows that will be spooky so just be patient with them. The soft plastics will work on some if you get past them and then ease it back.  Look for deeper fish on the ledges and deep drops close to the spawning areas.   Keep the T/R, C/R and Stanley Football Jigs handy.  Lizards and Crawfish are good baits to be using this time of year. I think of fish as being cooler this time of year and their colors are pale so I like to throw light colors that blend in.  Some like watermelon seed, root beer and watermelon red but dont think I wont throw a wild color like cherry seed in the mix.  Its red; and crawfish are red; and most of the trap fish are caught on red.   E2 bait Company makes great baits and one of the ones I like in the winter and spring is the DoodleBug.  It works great on everything from flipping them in the buck brush and grass to putting them on my C/R.  Dont forget about using them for a Jig trailer. 
Trophy Bass
I cant tell you the chances of catching a Trophy Bass from now till spring.  The moon has a big part in this and most folks fish the hardest on the moon.   Dont wait too long to get your trips booked as we have started to book for 2014.
Gift Certificates
Dont forget we have Gift Certificates for that special someone they are good for a year. 

Crappie; The Crappie have been running up river.   The bite has been light and you have got to really get the feel of them. The pontoon has plenty of room for everyone with shade and a Port-O-Potty. 
White Bass: Fishing up river will be kicking off the first of the year. We will be taking a few trips up river when the bite turns on. We had some trips last year where the kids had their limits in 5 hours and had a great time!

Water Temp.74

Normal pool 164.40               

Water Clarity 2 feet

10-13-14

Sam Rayburn is at 162.17 ft and rising as more rain has begun falling.   The lake is 2.23 ft low.

We started out shallow and worked along the grass lines and pads at a quick pace to cover a lot of water to find active fish.  Stanley Top Toads was one of our picks for the thick stuff and if we got a blowup that missed.  We followed that with a Baby Brush Hog. We had several fish that buried up in the pads and grass and got off. One thing you have to do when fishing this thick stuff is get the head up then bring them out of it as fast as you can. So dont play with weak line. Get some good, tough line when you're working around the pads. The Stanley Spinner Baits did a great job on the outside edges and grass flats picking up fish that were chasing shad.  Crankbaits have been getting a few fish but its been a lot of work.  We've been moving fast and covering a lot of water.   Our most productive depth has been 6 to 14 ft off points and back in the creek channels.  The Carolina and Texas rig has been getting a few fish off long points and drops.  Using the same bait we got a few off some of the humps on the main lake. Look for things to change quick as the fronts push though. One thing you should see if the water muddies up, the bite will slow down for a few days.

Crappie; The Crappie fishing picked up last week and we stumbled across a few places holding great fish.  Getting out on cool fall days and having some fun with your friends and family is the best.  Everyone has loved the pontoon with the shade, changing room and the port-o-potty.   It makes the trip a lot nicer for everyone.  We can handle up to 8 anglers.

Sam Rayburn is at 163.43 ft and is still falling as they continue to generate more electricity.
The lake is setting close to 1 ft low which means there has been lots of water in the lake though the summer .   
This week has been pretty good with a couple of good fish over 7 lbs.  Things are looking great as bass move up and the water cools down moving into fall. There are some fish up shallow around the grass and here are a few baits that have been creating some action. The Stanley Top Toad Ribbit in white and black has been the best for us over the pads and around the grass edges. I found that at times you to need to change the retrieval to get them to hit it. Off the edge we've been working a few creature baits and senkos.  Just let them fall to the bottom.  Next on the outer edges of the grass and pads use a little more speed with Spinner and crankbaits to cover more water looking for some active fish.  We had a few fish move up on points and hang on the ledges and creek channels as they move into the pockets. The Carolina and Texas rigged big worms and creature baits have been working here with some of the bite being super lite. One of the 7 lbs was caught out deep on a C/R and was thought to be a little fish.  When my friend set the hook a big fish came out of the water.  He said.  "Did you see the one that just jumped?" Then he realized that it was his fish that had jumped.  His words were,  It was such a light bite that I thought it was a dink.  Then you get to thinking about how many bites you get that you dont feel. Its a lot about feeling the bite.  I have seen folks have their rods jerked almost out of their hands, and still not realize they had a bite.   Others feel the weight roll or move an inch and set the hook on a good fish.
Crappie; The Crappie fishing has turned on as we see them making the move for this fall. We have seen lots of bream and catfish at times on the brush piles.  The bite has been very light and that makes it hard on the newer anglers.  Everyone has loved the pontoon with the shade, changing room and the port-o-potty.  We even carry a fan for the real scorching days.  It makes the trip a lot nicer for everyone. Its one way to get out of the house and have some fun.  We can handle up to 8 anglers.

Crappie; The Crappie are on the move and the bite has picked up.   We fished Sat and had 50 in the box before 11:00, it was a great day.  The bite has been very light and that makes it hard on the newer anglers.  Once you get the feel then you start pulling them in.  Everyone has loved the pontoon with the shade, changing room and port-o-potty.  We even carry a fan for the real scorching days.  It makes the trip a lot nicer for everyone.

Sam Rayburn is at 163.76 ft and is falling slowly

I went out last Friday to see if I could catch a couple of Big Bass, relax and enjoy fishing on Sam Rayburn.  I went looking and wanted to cover some water with Stanleys New Top Toad.  In one little pocket I picked up a couple of MONSTER bass that were hiding in the grass.

There are still some fish up shallow around the grass and the pads early and late.   The Stanley Top Toad has been giving us some action early.  As thing started to heat up we moved out and start working the outer edge of the grass with Stanley Spinner baits and some crank baits. Things have started to change in the last few weeks and we have had schooling action on top out in the flats.  Keep a spoon tied on and have some fun with them. On the deeper side we had fish moving up on the long points and starting to move back into the creeks getting ready for fall. The offshore humps have been putting a few fish in the boat using a Carolina or Texas rig but youve got to slow way down.

Crappie; The Crappie are on the move and the bite has picked up.   We fished Sat and had 50 in the box before 11:00, it was a great day.  The bite has been very light and that makes it hard on the newer anglers.  Once you get the feel then you start pulling them in.  Everyone has loved the pontoon with the shade, changing room and port-o-potty.  We even carry a fan for the real scorching days.  It makes the trip a lot nicer for everyone.
