With water temps warming the crappie are biting underneath boat slips on jigs tipped with crappie nibbles power bait on the hook. Jug lining is hot for blue catfish in the mouths of rivers and creeks as well as river channels in the main lake. When setting juglines look for depth transitions to place juglines along.

Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Report – February 28 2018

Fishing on Texoma has slowed down this past week but looks like Spring is just about here and fishing will drastically improve in the coming days with the warmer temps.  Water temp is 44 but with warmer weather and longer days we should heat up into the 50’s pretty soon. When this happens bait and fish will move up into shallower water on points, humps and flats.

Spring time striper can be caught on a variety of lures such as swim baits, bucktail jigs, horsehead jigs, and A-rigs. Drifting live bait can also be good and on some days deep water fish can be caught on live bait but as a general rule the shallower you can find fish the easier they are to catch because those fish have moved up shallow in search of baitfish and are more aggressive than the fish that are in deeper water.

2018 looks to be a very good year for Texoma stripers with the devastating flood of 2015 three years behind us now. 2015 and 2016 were tough years on Texoma, 2017 was great and 2018 looks to be even better with numbers of larger fish way up from previous years.

A preliminary 2018 gill net survey report from T.P.W.D. biologists show that striper numbers look very good with lots of over 20″ fish. T.P.W.D. biologists also stated that last years survey showed the highest growth rate ever recorded on Lake Texoma for striped bass and we will probably see similar growth rates this year. This should mean good fishing 2018!

It was a gorgeous day to be out on the water! We are still fishing sassy along the bottom over structure. Today we caught fish from 20 to 38 foot of water. There are tons of fish in the lake and we’ve had good steady fishing for several months now. Its going to be a great year.
Come make memories with us!
