Sam Rayburn Reservoir

In this the first episode of a new series, host Wade Middleton has made his way over into East Texas, to head out on to the Sam Rayburn Reservoir in search of pre-spawn Bass. It's early Spring, the weather is cold and wet and he only gets an hour or so out on the water, but explains that these low pressure conditions can often be the best for Bass fishing and shows how to make the most of them. First up he stresses how important it is to have good waterproof gear to keep yourself warm and dry. Use your electronics, by finding water just a couple of degrees warmer you will find active hungry fish and by choosing the right bait will have success, here he's using a Spro Aruku Shad to great effect. The next day, the weather has completely changed, clear blue skies, bright sunshine and higher pressure, so he switches tactics. To provoke what he assumes will be more lethargic fish he likes to use a suspending jerkbait, just throw it out, twitch it down and leave it in the strike zone and waiting for them to hit it. He also talks you through rod, reel and line selection to use with these and although this isn't his favourite form of Bass fishing, it certainly works in conditions like these. The Sam Rayburn Reservoir is one of the best Bass fishing lakes in the USA and Wade certainly makes the most of it, as always his tips and advice are well put and easy to follow.
