  My name is Craig and I caught a 2 pounds catfish off the dock using yellow powerbait. All I did was cast my pole out to the middle of the lake and then I waited. Then the line started to move to the right. "I knew it was big because it took a really long time to reel it in". We took a picture and released it back for the next person to catch. 7/15/04
  My name is Craig and I caught this 28" Carp weighting about 10 pounds just North of the dock at Roberts Lake. It took me about 5 minutes to reel it in. I use flower tortilla dipped in corn juice. We took a picture and released it back for the next person to catch. "It almost broke my arm" said Craig!        5/29/05

I WENT FISHING TO ROBERTS LAKE LIKE AT 9am I FISHED WITH 3 of my friends BY THE BRING FOR ABOUT 2 hours we didnt have a bite so then we went to the other side.AND IN ABOUT 20 minute I felt a bite.!I ROLED IT IN AND THERE WAS A FISH.AND BEFORE THAT WE MADE A TRap which is just a 3lb weight and a hook I put a worm in that hook and five min after I felt a bite in the trap which was JUST about 7 feet far.AFTER I catched the first one  5 minutes later I caught one with the trap.!SO WE WERE IMPRESSED ABOUT CATCHING ONE WITH TRAP WE MADE ANOTHER TRAP AND IN ABOUT 15 min we caught another one with that that meant that the fishes were far from us.we did have some other bites but they were with small fishing rods and the fish took the hook and weight.well that's all and I love fishing at Roberts lake.
