Fall Fishing Fun on Lake Ray Hubbard by Darrel Thomas
Finally…the dog days of summer are behind us. It’s fall, and the weather is absolutely perfect for fishing! With the cooler air and water temperatures, the key to success on Lake Ray Hubbard right now is….find the baitfish and you’ll find the bass…and I mean, plenty of bass!
So far, the larger bass have not been as easy to locate, however if you’re looking to catch numbers and have a lot of fun, then you’ll be very happy. During a recent outing, my partner and I caught close to 30 bass. They came on a few different baits. We caught them on soft plastic stick baits, bladed jigs and square bill crankbaits.
We were always on the lookout for schoolers coming up to feed on the baitfish, however our primary patterns were the following:
Casting and Pitching Soft Plastic Stick Baits along Rip Rap Banks
Casting Bladed Jigs through Scattered Grass and Stick Ups
Casting Square Bill Crankbaits along Seawalls
Although most of our fish were between 12 – 14 inches, we did manage to run into a few very nice bass, as you can see!
