Lake Texoma Fishing Guides Report

Noel Hooks (yep, that really is his name) went striper fishing on Lake Texoma for the first time. His Lake Texoma Fishing Report in his words follows:

It was an experience of a lifetime. The first time I went striper fishing, I caught the biggest fish of my life.

We departed at 6:00 am and Capt. Chris Carey put us on the stripers at our first stop. We were dropping slabs to the bottom and reeling up fast. They call this technique “ripping slabs”.

We had great action and were catching a striper every few minutes. Capt. Chris experimented with a different retrieve technique and caught 3 stripers on as many retrieves. He instructed us to “drop your slab and on the retrieve reel twice and twitch the slab”. It was amazing how well this worked.

We were catching stripers left and right – double and triple hook ups. The rods were bending and our lines crossing each other. The striper fishing was insane! Read the rest of this entry »

STINKIN’ WEATHER SAFETY
Mike Stewart, Terry Nuegin and three friends from the Panhandle arrived before dawn to find threatening clouds and the wind blowing like stink. Safety is a major factor with guides and crazy winds can make Lake Texoma very mean. “With the wind this strong before sunrise, we may have to make a safety call. But let’s give it a try anyway” Captain Chris Carey told the five fishermen.

Well out of the harbor at first light, they drifted and cast Chug Bugs onto the shallow banks. The fishing was going well with a dozen stripers hooked and exploding with a vengeance. Great strikes and fights came from 5 to 9-pound stripers who were attracted by 5-inch Big Bugs in chartreuse and chrome. Read the rest of this entry »
