No, it’s not “Desperate Housewives of Whatever”, it’s fat and sassy Texoma Striper Fishing!
The fall striper fishing on Lake Texoma is in full swing. When I last reported, I said the top-water striper fishing was maybe the best in years. I wasn’t kidding! And it continues to be above our expectations.
Go Early or Go Late
, But GO
Early mornings and late evenings, just as in hunting, big striped bass are exploding on top-water plugs. Every day we have been casting large top-water lures on the shallow banks. The big ones are in shallow water for only one reason and that is to feed. Whether you are an experienced fisher person or a novice, this is fishing at its best!
Amazing Top Water Fishing
Most of our Texoma striper fishing clients have been coming in with reports of phenomenal catches. Somedays, the fish will bang on Pencil Popper plugs almost like they see it coming. Then, you will have a day when the fish slap the plug with their tail and knock it two to three feet out of the water.
TIP: When Texoma Stripers tail-smack your lure, slightly twitch the plug and make it rattle.
“BOOM!”, the fish finds it, and the fight is ON!
Catch Giant Stripers In The Fall
Just this morning, we sent two boats out and you would have had to be there to believe it. Eight fishermen using top-water lures caught and released twenty four big striped bass weighing up to eighteen pounds.
The top-water lure striper fishing lasts for about two hours, and then around nine o’clock we change our fishing technique – it’s time to follow the seagulls.
Seagull Fish Finder
Every fall, thousands of seagulls arrive to spend the winter. They are your best fish finder. The hungry bass will push shad (the food forage) to the surface. Then seagulls fly in and dip up the shad.
We position our boats with the birds and the fish coming towards us. Then we cast soft plastic jigs. Multiple hook-ups are common with everyone on board fighting a fish at the same time.
