Lake Texoma Fishing Guides Report – Fall Striper Fishing On Lake Texoma “Best”

Lake Texoma Fishing Guides Report

Fall striper fishing on Lake Texoma is “the best of the best” – Ron Shelton.

 

lake texoma fishing guide chris carey“We come a lot, but always in November and December for the big fish!” Shelton said.

Ron, from Ewing Irrigation, entertains his clients with striper fishing on Lake Texoma several times a year. Just yesterday, he hosted eighteen fishermen who caught over 200 (two hundred) stripers.

They reported catching and releasing numerous ten-pound stripers. We provided a tournament-style weigh-in complete with prizes. Then everyone sat down to a catered fish-fry shore lunch. What could be better?

Many serious anglers agree that November and December are their favorite Lake Texoma striper fishing months. While lots of people are deer hunting, this select group is on Texoma, catching big stripers.

Texoma Stripers Bite All Day

For my money striped bass are the strongest fighting fish in freshwater. Originally a coastal ocean species, they are most comfortable in the cool water (around 66 degrees) that November and December provide.

This time of year Texoma stripers bite from early till late. They are voracious feeders, thrashing shad and putting on weight straight through the Fall months. Big bruisers will tip the scales at twenty pounds and more.

The all-day bite pays benefits for fall anglers in a variety of ways. We currently run our charters from about 10:30AM till well into the afternoon. Oklahoma and North Texas anglers can get up at a normal time. They drive to the Lake and still catch fish till their arms are sore! An added benefit of the mid-day start is viewing the clear, sunny, beauty of this area.

Fall Brings A Secret Striper Weapon

Trade in your sonar, Fall brings us the best striper finder available! Thousands of seagulls migrate to Lake Texoma and make it their winter home. Just like striper, a seagull’s favorite meal is shad – a minnow-like baitfish.

Seagulls can spot the silver flash of baitfish deep in the water and will fly circles over the area. From below, the stripers will herd shad, pushing them to the surface where a striper/seagull feeding frenzy begins.

With a good pair of binoculars you can see the birds flying from quite a distance. If you see the seagulls circling and diving… well then you’ve found yourself a hoard of the infamous Lake Texoma stripers.

It’s the Lake Texoma parade:

  • – stripers school-up and roam the lake looking for their favorite meal;
  • – seagulls flock to feed on shad that stripers have corralled at the water’s surface;
  • – Striper Express guides note the seagulls then race to the hot action!
