Best Striper Baits: Road Runner and Sassy Shad jigs
Striper Fishing Tips: January is a big fish month at Lake Texoma. The cool water winter fishing is legendary…
Large stripers up to 20+ pounds will hold on structure. The cooler the weather the better the fishing holds true for these fighting fish.
A 7-foot medium heavy Castaway Rod with 20-pound test is recommended. The 1-ounce Road Runner jigs with a white 7-inch worm will produce fish located on main lake points, the mouths of creeks and humps with deep water nearby. Bait fishing with live shad is also an excellent way to catch stripers.
Pay attention to the weather forecast and dress warm. Our charters depart at 11:00 a.m. in the winter. The fish will bite all day and the solar heat can help keep you warm. Keep your eyes on the seagulls; they can be your best fish locator.
Bank Access: The Oil Wells and Texas Flats (Using the same baits mentioned, shad will work best on the banks, tie on jigs if the seagulls are working near you.)
