The Shad Disco on Ray Roberts - Discochef ft. LrgmouthShad

Hey y'all,

 

Yesterday @thediscochef was gracious enough to let me come up to Ray Roberts and fish some of his spots from the bank with him. I can't thank him enough for the opportunity to see another part of Texas, see Ray Roberts, and just have the pleasure of fishing with him. Thediscochef is a gentleman and he is very easy to have a conversation with. Yesterday really allowed me to get inside the head of @thediscochef and understand how he goes about trying to catch bass at Ray Roberts. It is not easy! Ray Roberts is a very large lake and it is notorious for having a lower bass per acre than many surrounding lakes in Texas. @thediscochef fishes this lake from the bank and he uses simple gear. So, for any bass that he posts up on BR, respect him! I realized when talking with him over the course of the day that he has spent a lot of time working on his craft, thinking about where these bass hold, and how he can catch them better than other anglers on the water. He is very intelligent and understands a lot about the ecosystem of a lake and fish behavior. 

 

So, I have a few photos to share. We caught a few bass and we were able to snap a photo together. I hope I'm able to fish again with him in the future! I had a lot of fun out there! DFW area can be very very pretty! 

 

P.S you can blame me for telling him to longarm his bass ??

I reached the same conclusion from my chats with him.

Also, that spotted bass of mine was on a whopper plopper in the rain. Channeling the inner @ol'crickety !

 

And I put new hooks on three Whopper Ploppers this afternoon, channeling my inner @thediscochef.

How long are those rods you guys are using?

I had to look at what I was holding, but I have a st croix 7'6" mojo yak, a 7'6" shimano clarus spinning rod, and a 7'3" daiwa aird-x

     At least I didn't get skunked! Went lake fishing for the first time in a long while. Got kinda hot in the afternoon but I only shared my area with two other boats......until everyone else got off work. Then I shared it briefly with four jet skis. I say briefly because life is too short to fish with jet skis and riders that have no common courtesy. I loaded up and went to the house. 

     We always hear about searching for the bait. Well, let me tell you that there is no shortage of baitfish on Percy Priest near Nashville. I saw clouds of baitfish on my sonar and frequent schools of shad on the surface. Thought a couple times my livescope was malfunctioning because of the clouds but everytime I trolled over the masses, I could see the whole schools swim down. With so much bait, its a wonder I caught anything at all!

Ha! Didn't mean to crash your thread LrgmouthShad. I posted in the wrong topic! Can't follow directions or fish!
