Has anyone fished Rayburn lately? Has anyone been able to get an offshore bite?

Recommended Posts

I went to Sam Rayburn for the first time since February, the water since has come back down to pool level, and from the looks of it most of the deep hydrilla has been killed off. So, I thought it would be a no-brainer that the fish would be set up offshore and that would the deal. After fishing about 4 hours on various bush piles and boulders, ranging anywhere from 16-34 feet I could only come up with a single spotted bass. I was a Using a Spro DD-90, a Berkely foot long power worm on a carolina rig, and a Cumberland Pro 1 oz hair jig. After I gave up the offshore bite, I went to the the backs of coves and flipped some brush in the late afternoon and was able to pick off a few fish including a 5-pounder to salvage my day. But, it still left me puzzled, why I couldn’t catch anything offshore? Did anyone have this issue at Rayburn?

Might get @Bass_Fanatic to respond, there's a Rayburn thread down in the central region section.

The offshore bite has been tough this year due to high water.  The water is finally below pool stage and the offshore bite is starting to pick up.  They just aren’t out on summer stuff yet as they just began to move that direction.
