What a summer it has been up here on Lake Texoma or the big pond as we locals like to call it. The summer striper fishing has been way above our expectations. This wonderful lake never ceases to amaze me time and time again. Many of the guides and locals agree that the Big T (Lake Texoma) is poised to have another big run.
We have been fishing a lot and wanted to take time and thank all the customers that fished with StriperExpress this summer. We can’t do it without you!
June and July fishing blew us away. Good top water most days and even better slab-fest catching. Rippin Lips in deep water for quality and quantity.
How about this August fishing? The isolated summer thunder boomers have triggered a lake wide top water bite. About every 2 weeks, just about the time you’re ready to “crow” the stripers will show you who the boss is. We will have that tricky, bluebird dink catching day, but not this month! The fishing has been awesome. Lots of double digit fish with the largest this week weighing over 20 lbs. Top water at first light then off to the slab-fest. Yesterday we caught and released 65 stripers and tossed back 12 overs up to 10 pounds. The fish caught on slabs are running up to 1-4 pounds.
We are past the hottest weather of the summer. The big stripers are roaming the shallows early in the mornings ready to crush bait. Fall fishing is about to begin and we are ready. I wonder, if the striper fishing can be this good right now how good will it be come December?
