Sam Rayburn Fishing report 9-01-2014

Water Temp.87
Normal pool 164.40      
Water Clarity 2 feet
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 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 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,  ďIt was such a light bite that I thought it was a dink.Ē  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 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. Itís one way to get out of the house and have some fun.  We can handle up to 8 anglers. 
God Bless
