Topwater Texoma Striper Fishing – “INSANE!”

The Topwater Bite Is On At Lake Texoma!
Bill Carey – Topwater Texoma striper fishing was prime today. A cool front was on the way this morning. The barometer was on the fall and the big stripers moved into the shallow water to feed. Perfect striper fishing weather with good cloud cover and a nice chop on the water.

He made a long cast with his Pencil Popper plug and when he made the second pop of the plug, Kaboom! A big striper inhaled the plug, ran straight at us and went under the boat.

Randy ran to the stern, cleared the motor with his rod as the monster fish reached the end of the slack line. The 7’ Castaway Mag Medium bent and the reel’s drag started screaming peeling off the 20-pound Trilene mono. Randy was ready and as soon as the fish slowed down he began reeling the fish. Give and take, the fight was on.

This fish was mean.
Randy had his hands full. Several tense minutes seemed to last an eternity.  We all gasped when the huge fish was at the side of the boat and we hauled him up with a dip net. This magnificent fish was a warrior.

I asked Randy how he liked Texoma top water striper fishing. He replied, “My Dad brought me striper fishing twice before. We caught a bunch of fish on live bait and I thought the 10-pounders we caught were huge.”

“I didn’t know we were going to fish this way today (with lures).”

“THIS is INSANE! I can’t wait to come back”
