Raystown Bass

Well we launched at Aitch yesterday morning around 6:00am, while at the launch we discovered they had stocked Muskie's. There were about 40 of them inside the dock area, all about 6 inches long. Say what you want, I was glad to see them. I enjoy the occasional Musky. Fishing was slow on the lake with the clear skies, but we did manage to catch three and lost one nice fish. The fish we caught took wacky worms, shakyheads and a rattle trap. As you can see there was no consistancy at all, though we did miss several bites on the shakyhead. Others that we talked to did not fair very well either, I think that three fish in the boat was a good day considering the conditions. I really think that they need to lower the lake for the winter in an attempt to get rid of same of the weeds. Things should get better as the water cools or atleast here's hoping. God Bless and have a good day.

    Been a long time since i bass fished on raystown. My fav bait was jig and pig. The best jigs were small 1/4 to 1/2 oz brown, black, green or blue bucktails with a small pork rind. White sometimes but everyone used white. This bait fished on steep drops with woody cover would wear your arm out. Try it, it might still work. You might have a problem finding colored bucktails though. Rubber jigs just don't match up to bucktails on raystown.

    Give me a fish and I'll eat it. Teach me to fish and I'll eat lots of it.
