Water Temp.50
Normal pool 164.40      
Water Clarity 2 feet
02-04-14
Sam Rayburn is at 160.61 ft.   It has been rising slowly from the rain we got when a front pushed through.    Sam Rayburn is still low but things are beginning to looking up.
Some of the creeks and the river have been a little muddy from the rains. The grass lines have been slowly disappearing. The grass you found last week may not be there next week.  The fish will be using the grass a lot as they move in on the points and creek channels.  The cold weather came in early this year so we should have a lot fish come in early.  We have been catching a few nice fish in the staging areas this week. The bite has been slow but hooking a 5 to 6 lb fish can be a dream for some people.  We had several females that have been just bulging at the seams.  This is the time that a Trophy Bass will be her heaviest.
Sam Rayburn is known for the Trap bite this time of year in the grass and it has just started.   
Senkkoís and wacky worms will catch their share of fish around the grass lines and edges for the guys that want to fish slow. For the guys that want to chunk and wind all day. The Trap and Stanley Spinner bait will cover a lot of water looking for active fish along the points and back into the pockets.  There should be some big fish moving around the points and creek channels as they start moving into the pockets.  The Carolina Rig and Stanley Football Jig will pick up a few of them. Most bites will be very light so get ready.   Remember you have a couple of days between the fronts where the water will warm up and the fish will move in only to move out when the next front pushes though.

Trophy Bass
We are looking for a great surge of fish to move in and hopefully a few days of some of the best fishing on Sam Rayburn.  Last year we had a couple of days that the fishing was just unbelievable.  It was all about timing and being in the right spot. One thing for sure, you canít catch a Trophy Bass sitting at home watching the boob tube.  String some new line on all the reels then get out there and get to fishing. Itís nice to get away and enjoy a day on the lake. Take someone fishing this week.
.   

Remember the Sharelunker Program entries started on October 1 and runs thru April 30th. If you havenít 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 to 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; The Crappie fishing has been slow as they move upriver but we are still catching a few. They should start bunching up and thatís when it will get good.  Getting out on cool winter day and having some fun with your friends and family is the best. Grab the kids and come out to enjoy a day on the water.   Everyone has loved the new pontoon with the shade, changing room and the port-o-potty.   We can handle up to 8 anglers. 

White Bass; The White Bass are up river and that can be some awesome fishing for everyone. The fronts will slow the bite down some but you can still normally catch 30 on the slow day. Take an ultra light rig and hook into a few of them.  You have got a fight on your hands for sure.  If you want the wife and kids to have a blast and get them hooked on fishing this is the trip to take. Weíve been taking trips up river and have been doing pretty good.

Crappie;

 The Crappie are moving up river and we are planning a trip to locate them this week. Donít wait too long to get your trip booked. The pontoon has plenty of room for everyone with shade and a Pot-O-Potty.

White Bass

The White Bass have been moving up river and we are just starting to chase them.  Weíve caught a few here and there.  In the next few weeks we expect them to get better and  are looking to catch our limit.

Water Temp.52

Normal pool 164.40               

Water Clarity 2 feet

12-31-13

Lake level today 160.25

 ďBig SamĒ is looking good, only 4.15 ft low going into the New Year.

Things are looking up for the New Year.  The lake level is rising, the pads are thinning and things are going to get good for awesome fishing this spring.  Fish will be moving in on first and secondary points then making their way back into the pockets.  They are feeding on shad and getting ready to spawn.  Covering lots of water this time of year is key to finding and catching lots of fish. We catch some of our biggest fish in Jan. The females move up on staging areas waiting for just the right time to move in.  Fronts will push through and cool things down then they will warm up after a few days.  That means the fish will get active again only to be pushed back by the next front.  This gives the angler lots of chances to catch a Trophy as they hang around waiting to spawn. These fish have seen lots of baits from the tournament anglers so youíre 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.  Senkoís and wacky worms will catch a lot of  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.  Donít get stuck using one bait or one color.  If youíre 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 arenít looking for a lot of bites, just the big one. Youíve 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 spring as they move up looking to spawn early. The moon has a big part in this and most folks fish the hardest on the full moon.  Donít wait too long to get your trips booked as we have started to book for 2014.

Gift Certificates

Donít forget we have Gift Certificate for special occasions. They are good for a year so they have plenty of time to schedule a date.


We have a lot of boats buzz by the pontoon and other boats just to see where we are fishing.   Lots of them get way to close and can endanger the people on the boat.  The results of that type behavior are never good.   


Crappie;

 The Crappie are moving up river and we are planning a trip to locate them this week. Donít wait too long to get your trip booked. The pontoon has plenty of room for everyone with shade and a Pot-O-Potty.

White Bass

Water Temp.48

Water Clarity 2 feet
12-16-13
Lake level today 159.52
 ďBig SamĒ is looking good, only 4.9 ft low going into the winter months. The pads are thinning  but, there is still a lot of grass in the back of the pockets and off the points for the fish to hide in. With the lake rising slowly itís putting a little water just over the top of a lot of the grass. The water has been cooling down and things are changing.  The fish are starting to move more.  There will be a lot of fish up shallow chasing shad.  For the guys that want to fish slow and feel that tap on the line, senkoís and wacky worms over the top of the grass and around the old pads will catch a lot of fish.  Now if you just have to cover a lot of water Stanley spinner baits and traps along the grass lines and off points will haul a few fish into the boat. There will still be a lot of fish out deep so the C/R and T/R will catch a few of them in 20 to 35 ft. The fish have been scattered out and at times the old drop shot comes out if you canít get something to bite.  These fish have seen lots of baits by the tournament anglers so youíre going have to do something different and improve your game to catch the big one.


Trophy Bass
The chance of catching a Trophy Bass is greater from now till spring as they move up looking to spawn early. The moon has a big part in this and most folks fish the hardest on the full moon.  Donít wait too long to get your trips booked as we have started to book for 2014.
Gift Certificates
Donít forget we have Gift Certificates for Christmas.  Give Dad one gift for Christmas that he is sure to love!  Gift certificates are also great for other special occasions. They are good for a year so they have time to take it.

The Senkoís and wacky worms have been catching a lot of small fish along the grass lines with a few nice ones here and there. The Stanley Spinner bait and Lipless crankbait have been getting a lot of action this last week.  We caught a lot of fish and covered a lot of water. The crankbait bite has been good on ledges and creek channels.  The deep bite has been a little tough on us this week with the fish moving up to the shallows to fatten up for winter. But in all weíve had some great days on the water and some of the best weather in ages.
 We have a lot of boats buzz by the pontoon just to see where we are fishing.   Lots of them get way to close and can endanger the people on the boat.  Just a few years back we had a boat get to close to a small boat with 3 people in it.  The results of that type behavior are never good.   

Crappie; The Crappie bite has been pretty good with 40 crappie, average , per trip.   The bite has been light and you have got to really get the feel of them.  There have been a lot of hand size Bluegills hanging out over the brush piles.  Youíve got to work your bait past them to get to the Crappie.  The folks that catch on and get the bait past the Bluegill have been catching lots of fish. The group that catches the most legal, keeper size, Crappie wins a free trip the next year.  Donít wait too long to get your trip booked. The pontoon has plenty of room for everyone with shade and a Pot-O-Potty.

Crappie;

The Crappie fishing picked up last week as we stumbled across a few places holding some great fish. Getting out on cool fall days and having fun with your friends and family is the best.

Now is the time to get your boats down to the shop for service. Get that old water changed out drain and refill the lower unit oil a new set of plugs and any other service that may need done. That way it will be ready when you come out of the woods from hunting.

Sam Rayburn is at 158 .36 ft and has been coming up from the heavy rains last week
Sept 8th the lake turned over and I canít say how many big fish Iíve caught since that happened. I can tell you we lost and broke off more fish than I want to count. On one trip we started fishing offshore structure and ledges. On one ledge my first cast went over a stump, as the bait dropped toward the bottom it was picked up, I set the hook and she came up. As I was trying to get to the stump and free my line she came off. The next two casts I lost two more fish that got me wrapped up in the structure. I set the hook and they dragged me down into it. Then I got one up to the boat and as I reached down to lip her she jumped and came off. She looked to be around 7lbs. Well my client just looks at me and shakes his head. It was his turn. He got the bite, set the hook and the fight was on. Then it happened to him! Yep! She dragged him under the structure, we couldnít get her out, and SHE broke off. Big fish have a way of getting wrapped up in structure and busting loose.

 

With the water temperature down in the mid 60s weíll start to see more fish move up and get more active as we head into the fall season. There will be days the fish want plastic and days they want something to chase. We still have lots of lily pads and hydrilla to fish and both have been holding fish. Senkoís and flukes have been getting some action along with the Stanley Ribbits if they want to chase something. We have been throwing a few of the New Baby Ribbits and fish like them. Small shad are everywhere and thatís what they are feeding on. Thatís a good color to start with when throwing spinner baits or crank baits in shad color. Sometimes covering a lot of water in the fall to catch a lot of fish can be loads of fun. Weíve been catching a few fish in 8 to 14 ft of water off points and creek channels on Stanley Football Jigs and Carolina rigs. Work them slow or dead stick them. Good Luck

Water Clarity 2 feet

Sam Rayburn is at 157.78 ft and is still falling as they generate more electricity.

The lake is 6.62 ft low and you are seeing a lot more timber above the waterline. The city of Warsaw will be just under the water as you come out of the long cut.  Be careful when running out of the cut to the 147 bridge.  There will also be a lot of sandbars just under the water so keep a close eye out for them.

Last Sunday 9-8 the lake began its fall turnover and today you could still see the water was still off color. Not to say we didnít catch some nice fish.  Wednesday on one of my trips we started off fishing deep with a few small bites and started jumping around trying to find where our big fish had moved to.  On our 6th spot, first cast, we hooked one that got me over a stump and broke off.   Oh yeah, we were on the right spot. We got set up and in just a few casts I had two more that got me wrapped around the stumps and broke off.  Then it happened, I got one to the boat.  My guy was getting his camera out to get a picture.  As I reached down to pick her up she came off. When I said she gone he just looked at me and I shook my head.   I told him I had fried chicken to eat and didnít want get my hands fishy. How big was it?  I would say an easy 7-8 lbs.  A few casts went by and he hooked up.  You guessed it, that fish didnít get big by being dumb. She went around under and through something.  We worked hard to get that heifer with no luck.  Well we moved on and hit a few more spots to finish out a good day on Sam Rayburn.

There are some fish up shallow around the grass so here are a few baits that have been getting some action. The Stanley Ribbit high floater in white or 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 senkoís.  Just let them fall to the bottom. Next on the outer edges of the grass and pads use a little more speed with Spinner baits and crank baits to cover more water looking for 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, some of the bites are super light.  Then you get to thinking about how many bites you get that you donít feel. Itís 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 is on and off. 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 port-o-potty.  We even carry a fan for the real scorching days.  It makes the trip a lot nicer for everyone. Itís one way to get out of the house and have some fun.  We can handle up to 8 anglers. 

Donít wait too long to get your trip booked.

White Bass: Don't forget about the white bass as they move up the river this winter. We made several trips and filled the cooler up in a hurry on these fighting . These fish love to test out the Ultra light equipment and the skill of the angler as they fight to get away.
