Sam Rayburn Bass Fishing Report April 28, 2009

Fishing Report Hey guys it has been a while since I did any posting of fishing reports on here. I am no longer a fishing guide and tournament pro, I am now a real estate broker and own an office next door to the Stump Restaurant down by the dam. It has taken me about 5 years to where I can get back to fishing a little more on a regular basis. Since no one has been doing a regular report for Rayburn I volunteered. The lake is currently about 1 1/2 feet low and rising with rain in the forcast for the next week. The water is getting back in the bushes which will spread some fish out. You have a portion of fish that will stay up shallow as long as they have cover. This will be in the way of bushes, “hay grass”, pepper grass, and lilly pads. The other group of fish are already starting to pull out to the inside grass lines, they will start pulling out over the grass and sit on top until the grass grows tall enough that it forces them to the other edges closer to June. Right now, even though you can still catch fish on senkos and wacky worms up around the bushes, look for a carolina rig on mainlake points and ridges to be a consistant pattern that will produce some good bites. Work the inside grass lines and bare spots on flats looking for groups of post spawn bass. These fish will group up in big numbers. Also look for feeding activity on windy points early in th mornings. Perch color crankbaits will start producing soon over the grass. Fish the shade up shallow and the points and corners near ditches offshore. Please visit for lake area information, events, tournament results, and more. If you have an event, club information, or own a local business and want something posted on the blog, please feel free to email me that information. Also, if your looking at finding a place at the lake or need to sell one, give me a call. Thanks everyone and good luck. Shane Allman
