"The Memory Catcher" is a custom built 24' deck boat designed with your safety and comfort in mind. The level deck and wide access gate makes the craft wheelchair accessible. The 300hp outboard motor is quiet and puts you on the fish in no time. There is even a bathroom onboard so there's no need to run to shore for a "pit stop".

Lake Texoma has become famous for it's huge quantities of striped bass better known as "stripers". The lake is unique as it's one of the few in the US where stripers reproduce. The stripers travel upstream in the rivers and spawn yearly to give us a new crop year after year. The lake is also home for huge schools of shad, stripers' main food source, and has become well known for it's monster catfish which can be caught on jug line during the cooler months. Advantage Guide Service specializes in catching both striper and catfishing.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 10)

GOOD. Water stained; 75 degrees; 1.96 feet above pool. Striped bass fishing is great using live bait, slabs or topwaters on the right day. The weather should fire them up this week, watch for birds bouncing around the banks and hovering over schooling fish in deep water along river channels and main lake ledges. Bass fishing is slow using top waters early along the bluffs and using electronics to fish brush piles in coves 10-20 feet of water. Slow and shrink your approach to match the hatch and the heat. Crappie fishing is good jigging brush piles using electronics in the little mineral arm of the lake and near docks. 12-15 feet of water finding structure and roaming fish on chartreuse and black jigs. Catfishing is good seeing channels coming off baited holes and punch bait in 15-25 feet of water. Blue catfish are roaming the deep water in 40-50 feet of water eating cut shad. Fish the rocks and deep flats. Report by Jacob Orr, Guaranteed Guide Service Lake Texoma. Stripers are excellent on topwaters, and the slab bite has really kicked off landing the larger fish. Live bait bite has slowed. Water clarity has improved and the recent flooding has subsided so the summer pattern has resumed. Look for white egrets feeding on fish midlake to direct the way to fish. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors.
