Top Water Striper Nirvana

Top Water Striper Fishing Guide Bill Carey

All I can think about is topwater striper fishing at Lake Texoma!
If there is a season to pick as one of the best times to go fishing at Lake Texoma, you have to include the summer months.  The stripers have returned from their annual spawn.  They are hungry and attacking anything you throw at them.  The shad are spawning and this makes for some fantastic fishing.

Just today Chris Carey, my son and one the best Pro-Guides on Texoma, had a charter with four regular customers.  They went out at first light and had caught a dozen fish while casting the shallow banks.  The sunrise was beautiful and all were having a great time.  That’s when all heck broke loose.

A large school of stripers surrounded the boat.  This is a sight to be seen.  The shad were trying to escape the hungry stripers. Striped bass are schooling fish and ferocious feeders. The fish were knocking the bait 3 feet out of the water while running them towards the bank.  The anglers aboard were having multiple hook-ups during the catching frenzy.  Fish covered the deck of the boat.  Fast and furious would be an understatement.  Without another boat in sight, our group followed the school of stripers.  Within 3 hours the proud fishermen had kept 38 fish and released another 29 fish up to 12 pounds!

What can you say about topwater striper fishing?
It is truly the ultimate technique for catching rod-bending and line-stripping striped bass.   Jimmy Houston and I were fishing and I asked him  “Jimmy, what is your favorite type of fishing?” He answered; “What I’m doing right now.  Casting Cotton Cordell Pencil Poppers for topwater stripers at Lake Texoma.

World Class Fishing One Hour North of DFW
I have been fishing from Central America to Canada and I have lots of wonderful memories. However, I have yet to see a body of water that day in and day out and year in and year out produces catches like the big T. This lake is truly a natural phenomenon.   Lake Texoma is fortunate to have the best natural spawn of freshwater striped bass in the country.  Striped bass reproduce abundantly in Texoma. This great lake has twice the daily limit of any other lake in Texas; boasting a liberal limit of ten stripers per angler per day. It is truly a fisherman’s Nirvana and dream come true!
