  • I'm still new to fishing, if you consider I've just started back after about 25 years away. I love all types of freshwater fishi

    I'm still new to fishing, if you consider I've just started back after about 25 years away. I love all types of freshwater fishing, but I am finding I like bass fishing the best. Is there any good resources for me to help figure out the patterns on my home lake of Ray Roberts?

    Welcome back to fishing! Southern bass are all pretty consistent in what they like. Rubber worms and pig tail jigs are pretty good univerally for late in the year when bass are deep. They like buzz baits in the early and late hours and crank baits most of the time when they are in surface to mid-depth patterns. Use Google to search for local fishing reports on Ray Roberts and talk to fishermen at the dock. Bent rods on the lake are a much better assessment of what works than a web site or a salesman at a sporting goods store. Get out there and give it a try. Good luck and welcome to F&S.

        Follow field and stream but the best for each lake are the people who have fished it before. For instance, I moved to where I am now and caught nothing for 2 months following all the previous patterns. Now I catch the fish out of here like no one's business!

          TV talking heads refer to their air time as a 'show'. Are they 'shows' or 'programs' ?

          I'd say it goes all the way back to the beginning. There are just a lot more ways to hear the lies nowadays.
