Lake Texoma Fishing Report – Winter Striper Fishing is AWESOME

Lake Texoma Fishing Report

Winter is the best time for BIG fish. And big Texoma stripers are on a rampage!
The water temperature has cooled and Lake Texoma striper fishing has heated up.
Striper Express vessels fished every day before the recent ice storm, and are back on the water today.

GREAT STRIPER ACTION YEAR ROUND
Stripers bite year round and are most comfortable in the winter months.
When the largemouth bass, speckled trout and redfish are lethargic, the striper fishing is on fire. When Hunters are going through withdrawal and having cabin fever, these fighting “line sides” are calling your name.

Just before the last weather change, reports of 50 fish per day were becoming more common. Our customers were catching some nice fish up to 15 pounds. Lots of “overs.” Allow me to explain, “overs” are 20 plus-inch stripers that we release after you have filled your big fish limit. When you luck into a 30” striper, you just landed a hefty 17 pound fish.

GO WINTER STRIPER FISHING
Many serious fisher folk can’t wait for the superb winter striper fishing on Lake Texoma. They come for the big fish – and I mean BIG – line stripping and rod bending monsters!

Do you like the sounds of this so far?  Striper fishing with lures separates fisher-men from fisher-boys. We take a lot of pride in offering this special technique exclusively.  It puts you in the game from the get go. You are engaged catching, fighting and landing fish – the sporting way!

BEST TEXOMA STRIPER LURES
You will catch most of your fish with 4-5 inch white-glo Sassy Shad, soft plastic with a 1 ounce white jig head. The go-to big fish bait is the Blakemore Buck Tail RoadRunner. A secret tip is to put a 9 inch white soft plastic worm on the hook and use a garlic scent attractant. Big bait = Big fish!

Striper fishing with lures is so much fun that fishing celebrity Jimmy Houston will soon film his RoadRunner show with the help of Striper Express.

Oh Boy! Contact us today at [email protected] and don’t miss the fantastic winter striper fishing.

Lake Texoma Fishing Report: “PERSONAL BEST” Striper Fishing NOW

Lake Texoma Fishing Report: “PERSONAL BEST” Striper Fishing NOW
Lake Texoma Fishing Report Question: What is the best time for your “Personal Best” Striper Fishing Trip? Depending on the will of the striper fishing gods, the answer probably is RIGHT NOW.

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 »

Lake Texoma Fishing Report – BIG Texoma Striper Fishing!

January is the best time for BIG Lake Texoma Striper Fishing. HOLY MOLY they are large!

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!

january best for big striped bass fishing

What a catch! Just one guided group this week!

 

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 »

Lake Texoma Fishing Report – December Striper Fishing “ON FIRE!”

Lake Texoma Fishing Report – Lake Texoma striper fishing is on fire! The word is out about our striper fishing shrine. Devout fishermen are now making pilgrimage to Lake Texoma .

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!

Fishfinders
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.
