Stripers are Fat & Sassy on Lake Texoma

The weather forecast was for chilly rain and then more rain and some wind, but that didn’t deter Chris Carey, at Striper Express and his client, Paul Bandiera from Dallas TX.

Despite the cloudy overcast day, the stripers at Lake Texoma woke up hungry and Chris and the clients got into fish quickly on swimbaits. The morning continued to yield many fish plus 4 striped bass that weighed in excess of 10 pounds. This is a good day in the rain for sure! Fishing slowed a bit for an hour or so and t

Fishing Report from TPWD (Dec. 7)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 65 degrees; 1.36 feet below pool. Striped bass are excellent with lots of fish measuring in at the 20 inch mark, and starting to plump up like Santa for their winter body. While the forecast has been windy the best success has come drifting in 30-60 feet of water with Alabama rigs. Days with birds are easiest to locate fish, so use electronics to locate. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped Bass are good on live shad and flukes under the gulls or along flats in 20-30 feet of water. The fish have been better on the north and west ends of the lake near the dirtier water. Blue and channel catfish have been good in deep water on cut shad and prepared baits. Bigger fish are still moving shallower drifting big cut shad or drum. Largemouth and smallmouth bass have been slow on live shad along the smaller clumps or rocks along the east end of the lake and crankbaits along the gravel on the south end of the lake. Crappie are good on minnows and light colored crappie jigs. Catching fish in various depths from 15-30 feet on dense brush piles and hard structure. Report by Jacob Orr Lake Texoma Guaranteed Guide Service.
