Fishing Report on Omnia Fishing
I fished Sam Rayburn. The area was hit by rain which lasted most of the day. Water temps have remained high for fall as we have not had much cold weather. The water temp was 67. Fish can be found anywhere from 1ft to 25ft. Caught a few fish working grass lines with a white Zman Stealth Chatterbait and a Fishing Bait Club swimbait as the trailer. Found 3 decent schools of fish graphing points next to the creek channel. All the deep fish were caught on a Strike King 6xd in Citrus Shad Color.
Rod & Reel: Abu Garcia Veritas and Revo
Bait: Strike King 6xd
