Striper Fishing on Lake Texoma – Texas Parks and Wildlife Video – Jan 20, 2014

Larry Hodge, from Texas Parks and Wildlife, fished Lake Texoma with Chris Carey of Striper Express.

This rockin’ music fishing video Larry created shows stripers in, out of, above, and below Texoma’s waters.

Chris tells us about fishing “nice” big stripers around and above tree stumps.

Turn the volume up and Hold On to your ears…

Our thanks to Larry Hodge, his lovely wife the video editor, and Texas Parks and Wildlife
for providing this footage.

There’s a creek channel that runs behind this island over here, and there’s a stump
0:42
field on the edge of that island coming up out of the river. This time of year all the
0:43
nice stripers are tending to be around those stumps, because shad are hiding around them.

We’ll be working this stump field and bumping Roadrunners right over the top of the stumps.

Sometimes people think in the winter you drag the bait. Actually, you swim the bait right
0:45
above the stumps, so the fish will come up and get it. If you drag, you’re going to
0:46
catch the stump. We’re going to fish stumps all day long this time of year. Everywhere
0:48
we go we’re either going to catch a fish, or hang up, or hopefully, both.
