January
In the middle of the winter, the fishing slows down, so getting your prey’s attention will require some work. Still, you can always go for a Largemouth or nice White Bass, as well as Catfish.
February
This is a good month to go after Catfish that are out and about and hungry. Whether you use nightcrawlers or stink bait, chances are, you’ll have a Catfish on the line quite quickly.
March
Spring on the Sam Rayburn Reservoir brings a variety of species for you to chase. Bass fishing is solid, but you can also mix it up with some Crappie and Bream, that way you’ll have plenty of fish fillets for dinner.
April
Even though fishing is open year-round on the reservoir, April marks the beginning of the peak season. Largemouth and White Bass are all in the pre-spawn mood, which means they’re hungry, and Catfishing is excellent as well.
May
You can go after the star of the show that is Largemouth and White Bass, or dedicate some time to fishing for Bream and Catfish. Bream respond to worms and Catfish love frozen shrimp.
June
It’s getting very warm, which means that after spawning, Bass will move to deeper waters, to stave off the heat. Want some Catfish? Use trotlines with live bait, you won’t be disappointed.
July
This is one of the most productive Catfishing months. Crappie won’t be able to resist well-presented minnows, especially if you work them around underwater plants. Look for Bass in the middle of the reservoir.
August
If you can handle the heat, you’ll be rewarded with more Bass than you can take home. Crappie and Bream are also there for the taking, but it seems that the hungriest fish is still Catfish, ready to gulp down your live bait.
September
Do some topwater fishing early in the morning and you’ll be awarded with very good Largemouth and White Bass. If you’re in the mood for the most delicious fish dinner, go after Crappie using minnows.
October
This is one of the best fishing months on the Sam Rayburn Reservoir. You can target anything you’d like, and Largemouth Bass are particularly popular. You can also hit the water at night and maybe land a trophy Catfish.
November
The weather might be getting colder, but that doesn’t mean that the bite is slowing down. Cast for Largemouth Bass around underwater plants and don’t be surprised if you hook a couple of Crappie along the way.
December
It might be holiday season on land, but fish don’t take days off. Catfish, Crappie, Bass are all swimming around, hungry, and ready to jump your bait. If you go out, you’re up for a fishing treat!

I fish quite a bit in the west. Ken took the time to explain and teach me how to rig and fish different tackle for Texas waters and how they may work wherever I fish. Sure we caught fish but the knowledge he gave me is priceless if you are a fisherman. Book this guide my friends. You can’t buy this.

Scott worked with me to get the trip in. He was willing to delay the start of the charter until later in the day due to weather. Other captains could have just cancelled altogether. Scott also put me on active feeding fish that allowed me to fish in a way I am most familiar with and lures I had the most confidence in. To me that the best part.

It was a rather difficult situation to fish as we had two days of heavy rain. Captain Scott worked extremely hard to not just put us on fishe but to put is on BITING fish. His dedication to making it an awesome trip was rewarded well. We are already planning a saltwater trip.

My son and I spent the day on Lake Sam Rayburn with Capt. Scott Pearce chasing bass and catfish. When the bass were slow we hit about 30+ catfish. Wonderful guide and appreciated the time he spent making it a great experience. We plan to be back!

Myself and my 3 boys have been on many guided fishing trips. We take a trip every year in Aug after their baseball season. Capt Scott's Skeeter boat and fishing gear is top notch! We caught an absolute "TON" of catfish and crappie. I couldn't be more happy with how the trip went. If you want to catch a ton of fish, then book your trip with Capt Scott!!! Thanks for everything Capt Scott, we'll be back next year!!!

Super nice guy and very knowledgeable of the lake! Went the extra mile to put us on fish, on a hard bite day. After the day was over took some extra time to review the lake map with us and give us some tips for the rest of the trip.

8 hr trip with Captin Scott. Very patient with 2 beginners and took plenty of time to talk about technique and fishing tips. We caught some nice fish to fry up and most important he understood the charter was more about the quality time than just another fishing trip. We will book again!!

Captain Scott is a top notch guide. We caught lots of bass. And I have a new friend. If you are wanting a trip you won’t be disappointed. Very friendly, nice boat. I originally wanted a crappie trip but Scott told me that the crappie just wasn’t hitting that good and offered the bass trip instead of just taking my money and letting me be disappointed with the crappie fishing. Caught a lot of good bass.
