Lake Texoma Striper Guide – FAQs
As a Lake Texoma Striper Guide for over thirty years, I’ve been asked every possible question. Here you will find answers to the most common questions:
Tell me about the fishing.
The lake has many species of fish, but most fishermen opt for our specialty – the fantastic striper fishing on Lake Texoma. Known as the striped bass capitol of the U.S., Texoma boasts the most productive natural reproduction of striped bass, and perhaps the highest success rate for anglers in fresh water – you will catch fish!
Where is Lake Texoma?
Lake Texoma forms part of the Oklahoma – Texas border. It is just 90-minutes by car due north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, and, 2½ hours southeast of Oklahoma City. There is a local regional airport for those with planes, and we can arrange chartered buses for large groups.
How do I plan my guided fishing charter?
You can inquire about your date by submitting a form, or calling us. With our boat fleet we can accommodate most large group fishing charters. If you choose to go fishing on a weekend, we recommend you begin planning well in advance.
Planning a visit during the Topwater Bite? You may already be too late. I’m serious, many of our clients book a year in advance – check availability here.
Weekdays are more flexible for availability at any time of year, especially for large group outings.
What should I bring?
We supply all tackle, lures and safety equipment. We clean, filet, and bag your catch – and we improve the taste of your fish by very carefully removing all the redline. You should bring 2 coolers, one for your catch and one for your own drinks and snacks. Do bring suntan lotion if your skin is sensitive. A $12 Lake Texoma license is required for anyone 17 years and older. And of course bring your camera!
YOU WILL ALSO NEED A LAKE TEXOMA FISHING LICENSE!
Where is Striper Express Guide Service located?
Our boats are berthed on the Texas side of the lake. Here is where you will board our boats:
STRIPER EXPRESS LAUNCH POINT

Will I need Lodging?
Half of our guests drive in for a “daycation”. Others prefer lodging. We can offer you a 4-star resort or a selection of lake homes and some great cabins (check out our Big Fish Special).
Would this be fun for my family?
Absolutely, we are big on kids. The overall outdoor adventure of being on the water and catching hungry fish will be etched in their memory forever. We often hear the kids ask, “When can we come back?”
Can Striper Express accommodate large groups?
The short answer is Yes! We have created striper fishing excitement for 3 decades. Whether a corporate outing, church group or family reunion, we provide complete reliability and flexibility for every sized group. With proper notice we can accommodate groups of 60 people or so, even providing chartered bus service.
Our boats are each captained by a professional Lake Texoma Striper Guide who understands your needs and will take care of the details. All you have to do is show up.
And remember, We Guarantee Excitement!
