Jeff Ringness of Pottsboro Texas, went Texoma striper fishing with us on a sunny Sunday in December. This is the first fish Jeff has caught in over fifteen years. It is whopping 10 pound 9 ounce striper caught in fifteen foot of water. Jeff was using an ICE colored Zoom soft plastic lure on a three-quarter ounce jig head. Way to go Jeff!

In the summer months, you depart at dawn and head up the lake. It’s not calm for long. Your heart starts racing in anticipation of hunting those mean and hungry striped bass.
Get ready, it’s show time.
All Heck Breaks Loose
The stripers are waking up, they push the shad to the surface and a feeding frenzy begins. Hundreds of striped bass are splashing and thrashing on the water’s surface. You cast your Topwater plug, twitch and reel, hold on…These aggressive fish can’t refuse your offering.
“The catching was fast and furious with triple hook-ups. At one time we had so many fish being caught, it looked like Asian carp had invaded Lake Texoma”! said Aaron Zetterower from Dallas, TX. Read the rest of this entry »
The winter season has crept into the North Texas area a bit. Fortunately, the cooler temperatures in January have turned on the big fish bite.
The Lake Texoma Striper Fishing is year round and has been so good that the StriperExpress boats are catching some limits along with the bruisers. When I say bruisers I mean the knock-your-socks-of, hang-on-for-dear-life bruisers. Nothing better than finally exhaling after getting that dude into the boat… whew!
How can this be?
Lake Texoma is a world class fishery for Striped Bass. These Stripers are a cold water fish and they feed on shad even when the water temps are in the low 50 degrees. Adjustments are necessary and change occurs often so fishing daily keeps StriperExpress guide staff in touch and up to date. Read the rest of this entry »
On Lake Texoma we catch fish year ‘round. This December the striper fishing is awesome. My son Chris Carey, Pro-Guide and guide team leader with StriperExpress, worded it perfectly, “The fishing has been getting better every day, and now it’s as good as it gets.” Chris and his team of striper fishing guides have been catching up to a hundred fish per day.
“Best Fishing Trip Ever”
That’s what Terry Neugin from Amarillo, Texas had to say. Terry is one of our customers that has caught the Lake Texoma striper fishing bug. He and a group came in for some December striper fishing this week. They have been on several fishing trips to Lake Texoma just this year. “Now I have fished every season on the Big T and have never had a bad day. I love it!”
Let’s Try An Experiment
For two days Terry’s group had been catching fish in the river channel, chasing deep-water schooling fish under the seagulls. For their third and final day of their striper fishing adventure Chris said “Let’s try something new today”.
Chris tied on Moe’s Nanna Shad soft plastics on a three-quarter-ounce jig head for each angler. He had figured out that the sand bass and stripers were stacked in coves and creek channels.
The group motored to the back of a marina and caught 28 sand bass and 17 stripers in an hour. This is a wonderful lake!
While moving to another sheltered cove Chris spotted a hundred seagulls wheeling and feeding on shad. They were just a bit out from the south shore in the open lake. Abandoning the cove and creek strategy, he positioned the boat upwind of the airborne flock. Then he set up a drift above a HUGE school of fish.
The digital fishfinder showed a perfect picture – stripers forty-foot thick within the submerged river channel boundaries. Everyone grabbed a rod rigged with a two-ounce slab while the stripers continued their voracious feeding. Cast lures couldn’t hit the bottom without a strike. All heck broke loose with rod-bending and line-stripping action!
The State Of Striper Fishing
Catching and releasing fish after fish, they drifted and drifted with multiple hookups most of the time. The striper feeding frenzy ended only when the drifting boat reached the far shore.
One of the fishermen noticed and said “We never even started the motor! How far did we drift?”
“Over three miles” came the answer.
They had found their schooling stripers at the Texas shore and fished them all the way to Oklahoma.
“I love this lake” said Mr. Nuegin.
Bill’s Striper Fishing Tip: Analog Beats Digital. Fishfinders that is. Digital fishfinders are great for confirming fish in the space below your boat. Analog fishfinders – seagulls, herons, etc. - show a guide from miles away exactly where the boat needs to be to use that digital finder.
