Lake Texoma Fishing Report May 2017 by Capt. Stephen Andre’
The fishing on Lake Texoma has been wonderful this Spring and the Summer bite should be great as well!!
I’ve been catching them from 3 to 35 feet of water either on swimbaits or slabs. Recently the swimbait bite has been best for me for the 15-19 inch Striper as well as the bigger 10-13 lb striper! Slabs will give you great action with some… Read article…

Beautiful day on the lake today !! Bright sunny day and NO WIND !! Yes I said no wind !! Very calm out there today. Guess everyone got the memo cuz the lake was as crowded as I’ve seen it in years … some real amusement at the boat ramp
Anyway had a great trip with my crew today. Tons of action all day long. Kept a 4 man limit for the fryer and another dozen of so sand bass. Prob released at least that many more. Great job today kiddos !! You caught em like pros !!
Lake Texoma Early Spring Fishing Report | JD Dorsey | April 29, 2017
it’s head to the boat dressed in winter, 100 MPH foul weather gear, and nice warm underwear. It’s just part of the gear for those in a boat, running 35 MPH across a lake for Stripers! I have long known, 23 years guiding on lake Texoma, that this was the drill, and have been in 23-degree cold factor weather, and the fish don’t know that! When I drop anything down that resembles food, Bam, all thoughts of weather disappear, almost. Read more…

Enjoy Lake Texoma | April 29, 2017
Fishing remains on fire right now. We are catching many many small Stripers, with some good 17-19 inchers mixed in.
We are seeing an increase of bigger fish showing up, with about half already spawned out.
Threadfin Shad have been spawning for a few weeks now and the already abundant bait population will only increase. Last year’s Striper hatch will continue to get fat and bigger as a result.
The White Bass population has rebounded nicely and we are catching many Sandies over 2 lbs every day.
Live bait is working very well but slabbing is equally productive.
Now…..is the time to get in the water and take advantage of this exceptional action. Get your own boat out or hire one of the guides on the lake to take you straight to the “honey hole” Be safe and “Enjoy Lake Texoma”
Stripers Inc | April 27, 2017
We had some good fishing this past weekend April 21-24. We’re using mainly live shad right now, anchoring on river ledges and drifting over flats in 20-30 ft of water and the fishing is good here on Lake Texoma. Lots of little fish are being caught as most of our larger fish are still up river spawning, though as you can see in the pictures we are still able to manage a few nice fish on just about every trip as well as several medium fish to take home for supper. You can find out more information and book your trip online at www.stripersinc.com or give me a call at (903)815-1609 and I’ll get you setup.

No sunrise pic this morning left my phone at the slip but it was great. Almost as great as the fishing. Solid box of fish today. Pulled around 50 fish. All but one had spawned already. If that is true, then fishing should remain good for a few months.
Fishing continues to sizzle! This spawn is coming early this year it sure does seem. Sandbass and striped bass look like they are exploding they are so fat. With the Oklahoma side record at 3 lbs. 9 oz. and the Texas side record at 3 lbs. 6 oz. we are torn catching 3 lbs. 7 oz. and 3 lbs. 8 oz. Sandy’s whether to certify them or not but we are waiting for the one that is 3 lbs. 10 oz. or better. Sure hope we can get one in the boat & clean sweep the record! These are MASSIVE WHITE BASS FOLKS! I sure hope we get it but I do feel someone is going to get it soon these are just too big. We here at striper express guide service would love to take you on one of these charters on beautiful Lake Texoma. All you need to do is go to www.striperexpress.com or give us a call at 903-786-4477 to schedule your date.
Mid-winter fishing on Lake Texoma has been great! Nice catches of Striper and Sandbass. All are being caught on artificial swimbaits on points and ledges in 8 to 25 feet of water. Casting out, letting it sink to or near the bottom, slow retrieve and waiting for that tap to set the hook! Read more….

If you are dreaming of a trophy monster striped bass, now is the time to be fishing on Lake Texoma. Winter is when these big striped bass are most active.
Glen Shirley’s StriperCat Guide Service | 2-9-2017You don’t need many words – the smiles tell the story! Lake Texoma is a 4 season lake and winter is some of the best fishing of the year!

A limit of jumbo Sand Bass. And I mean JUMBO!! A few stripes mixed in and a good run of Blue Cats. We had a ball. Live bait and gray ice colored Flukes on yellow heads in 42 ft of water. We would slowly raise the Flukes about 4 ft. Then slowly let it back down and then “thump”.Very fun guys. They went home with 7 big bags of fillets

Fishing was great today. We caught our limit throwing sassy shad. Who wants to go out tomorrow?
Question: Why do you cut their throats?
Answer: Stripers Inc. For one, I prefer to take their life in that way instead of unconsciously tossing them in the cooler which prolongs their death. Also it improves the quality of meat to bleed them out.

Fun way to start the day!
Yes, Lake Texoma is known as much for trophy cat as it is known for monster Striped BassCrosswinds Guide Service | 1-15-2016
Very subtle bite. But they come alive when we put a hook in their face.
Adventure Texoma Outdoors | January 2017
The last couple weeks have been pretty good. We had a couple days that were a little slow after the last cold front and a day last week that I tried to fish and was blown off the water by a cold north wind, other than that it’s been pretty good. The bigger fish have certainly showed back up this winter and I think we may have overestimated the damage the flood did to the overall population. This time of year is the best time to catch a big fish and I’ve caught several in the 10 lb range and seen a couple that were close to 15 lbs. The spawns that we had the last couple of years look very strong and the lake has really recovered nicely. There’s more bait in the lake than I’ve seen in 25 years of fishing here so those young fish have plenty to forage on. That being said I believe this year is gonna be very good here on the big pond and I’m really looking forward to it.
Lake Texoma 2016, What a great year!

A new lake record fish has been caught!
Barbara Pope caught this 24.7 pound striped bass from Lake Texoma last Thursday. Barbara was fishing with striper guide Chris Carey. While heavier striped bass have been caught in previous years at Texoma, this fish represents the largest striped bass submitted to the Oklahoma Lake Records Program since its inception in 2008.
