Lake Ray Hubbard Fishing Guide Report
Lake Ray Hubbard summer time fishing is here. May was a fantastic month as far as the fishing goes. White bass were almost jumping into the boat on most days. A few bad weather days were mixed in but overall the weather was very pleasant. We still have the COVID-19 lurking around but the good news is it seems like the hospitalization numbers re way down , and that’s a good thing especially for our older friends and people that are more at risk. I am still being cautious with the cleaning of equipment and the boat. We have other things going on right ow as well , I don’t like to get into politics and such things when discussing fishing but all I can say is that we are here for a short time on this beautiful earth and we all should treat each other with respect and love.
Lake Ray Hubbard in June can be some fantastic fishing. It also brings a time when they are kinda doing the in-between stuff. They are transitioning from spring water temps to hot summer temps. The great thing is this signifies the start of white bass schooling early mornings. The main problem with June, it seems to make them. One a lot. You will be on a great school of fish then poof, they disappear. I will burn some extra gas this time of year looking in multiple locations for fish. When you do find them it can be fast and furious. Early morning I look for the white egrets and blue herons, they won’t be lining the shore line but you will see them hoover above the fish. When that slows down that is where your electronics comes into play. You won’t mar a lot of fish usually , but you just need to know they are in the area. The shad spawn has already happened and they are chasing tiny shad fry all over the lake .
White Bass Lures
I use a couple different set ups this time of year. In the mornings if I find schooling I am throwing a Mepps tail spinner . With the fish chasing shad fry they seem to want that smaller lure a little better than the larger tail spinner or 3 inch CoHo swim bait. Mt slabbing set up is about the same, 1 oz slab with a jig tied above it. I also recommend that if you find fish suspended , like they do this time of year , reel 4-5 times up, let the slab fall. It can be a deadly technique this time of year. As it gets hotter , reel faster.
