New To Texas

Recommended Posts

Hey, my name is Mark. 

 

A year and a half ago we moved to Ruston, LA. Coming from Phoenix, AZ there was really nothing for me to do. So I purchased a 2018 Ranger RT188 boat in July 2017. I was fishing Caney and D'arbonne lake for late summer and fall. Just when I started to figure out what i was doing on those lakes we moved to Prosper, Texas. Now my closest lakes are Louisville, Ray Roberts and Ray Hubbard and its cold here. I have only been to Ray Roberts but I feel like I am learning how to fish all over again. Any pointers for these larger, deeper lakes would be appreciated.

Cold you say? (shakes head as I stare at 6-8" of snow [-6 degrees when I woke up]).

Ha, thanks guys! I am originally from Arizona where it is 75-80 degrees right now. A little over a week ago I went back and we were wake boarding out at the lakes.

Hey Mark, great having you with us.

 

Check out the Central Fishing Locations and ask your query there. The Texas guys will answer your call.

 

Keep us posted on your beautiful bass you will be catching this summer. Post pics, too.

Welcome to the forum, and Texas!  I live by Ray Roberts so I fish it on the weekends.  Still trying to figure it out myself.  One thing I do know is that it gets windy in the spring and early summer.  As such I generally stick to the coves near Johnson's Branch.  The wind is almost always out of the South and will heavily dictate where you fish.

 

Never had much luck fishing north of the bridges on East Lone Oak and I have spent a lot of time trying.  There is also a lot of barely submerged timber in that area,  so be very careful. 

 

Most of my success has been fishing the coves on the west side of the lake or the southeast.
