Rayburn Bass Fishing Update 1 12 23

Today is part two Rayburn reports this week. Water still about 4 feet low but rising quickly and warming into the mid to upper 50’s.

Two baits featured today:

The new DUKE by 6th Sense (Use code Ken10 for 10% off)

And the 1/2 Rattle Trap in the color “Crawfish the old way”

Two trap rods, the Magnum Bass Rod 1 and Magnum Bass Rod 3. The 1 is the 7’0” Medium Heavy Fast tip on this page and the 3 is the 7’6” Med Heavy Mod Fast. I like both, so according to how long a rod you prefer.

Lews Custom Pro SLP reel in 6.8:1 is my preferred trap reel

  1. Hey Mr. Ken, great content as always! Question… I got a pedal kayak last summer and want to do some spawn fishing on Rayburn. I’m limited on areas as I can only go as far as I’m willing to pedal. Is there a specific ramp/area you recommend for this time of year and into summer? Not asking for any secret spots just a somewhat comfortable area for a kayak still with decent fishing nearby.
