Striper Fishing Tips: The big fish are on the banks early in the mornings in October.

Cast Pencil Poppers and big Chug Bugs for vicious strikes in shallow water.

Mid-morning change your lures to four inch sassy shad on a one ounce jighead. Favorite colors are white-glow and chartreuse fleck.

Always keep your eyes on the seagulls. They can locate schools of stripers roaming in open water.

Live shad fishing is also is also an excellent way to catch stripers. Locate the fish on the ledges, anchor up and place your bait three turns off the bottom. The best depth will average thirty feet deep.

Tips:  Stripers are moving out of the deep water and roaming the flats in September.

The lures of choice are slabs and jigs. Vertically jig one-ounce chrome, white and chartreuse slabs along the bottom in ten to thirty foot depths. Coho minnow jigs in white glow color with a ¾ ounce jighead and a four-inch tail are perfect for these hungry stripers.

Cast the jigs and use a medium retrieve. If you find surfacing or swirling fish, cast the jig, hold your rod high and keep the jig subsurface.

Tips:  The big stripers  move onto the flats in August.

Early mornings cast Pencil Poppers and Chug Bugs on the shallow banks.

Mid morning, change your lures to Sassy Shad soft plastics.

Concentrate on the flats that run about twenty feet in depth. Locate the creek channel and drop offs, these are the routes the fish use to move up from deep water. Later in the month the seagulls arrive, pay close attention to the birds as they are the best fish finder.

Tips:  Winter fishing on Lake Texoma is legendary. Chances of landing trophy stripers in February are in your favor.

Road Runner 1-ounce white Bucktail jigs with a 7-inch soft plastic worm are deadly on the big fish holding on structure.

Always keep your eyes on the seagulls. Cast your 1-ounce white-glo Sassy Shad jigs under the birds where large schools of stripers can be feeding. Multiple hook-ups are common with lots of action in the open water.
