Well we had a good run with trolling and casting swimbaits this spring but after the beating we took this morning, 15 fish, it looks like it's time for me to make the switch to live bait. It worked out this afternoon for my group of 3. They limited out and released a bunch of overs up to 12 lbs. May and June are gonna be great. ... See MoreSee Less

Lake Texoma striper fishing has really come alive this week with the arrival of spring. Big striper are on a feed getting ready to make their annual spring spawning run up the Washita and Red rivers. As the shallow waters warm fish move up out of the river channel to feed on shad. The fish are on the move so anglers need to be persistent and stay on the move looking for active fish. My bait of choice for early spring is a 5" swim bait on a 1oz jig head. Trolling is also effective this time of year and on days when my customers can't cast well we troll. The last few days the big striper have been on a tear and we have been releasing many over 20" fish on recent trips. Remember limit on Lake Texoma striper is 10 fish per person but only 2 of those 10 can be 20 inches or longer. The good box fish will turn on as it warms up a little more but for now we will enjoy catching lots of big Texoma stripers ... See MoreSee Less

Love at first bite. Fall in love with this recipe for Striped Bass with Cherry Tomato Salad and Squash Jam from @SaltwaterSportsman. Read the recipe on our Dockline Blog. bit.ly/2XlKocS #CookYourCatch #GoBoldly ... See MoreSee Less

You know its about spring when the red birds start singing their song. March is big fish month on Texoma. Big fat prespawn fish will move up out of the deep water to feed before making their annual run up the river. February fishing is ok but I love the springtime so I spend some of my time in February for boat maintenance and preparation for the upcoming season. I can't believe its Valentine's day already. Spring dates are booking up fast and before you know it I will be out on Texoma chasing big striper every day. My bait of choice in the spring time is a 5" swim bait on a 1oz jighead. I will fish with any color as long as it is glow or chartreuse. On days when I have experienced anglers we will cast them but when my crew is lacking casting skills we troll them on spreader rigs. Most days you need to concentrate on shallow structure in 10 - 25 foot of water. I describe structure as any difference in water depth like points and humps or a difference in bottom composition from the normal like gravel,rock,timber, and man made structures. While fishing structure always keep your eye open for working birds as that can happen anywhere at anytime in the spring. It's about to get serious up here on Texoma and I'm ready. ...

March is coming up quick. Big prespawn striper will go on a little feed before they head upriver to spawn. Time to get booked if you want a shot at the biggest fish of the year. Call or text me to reserve your day. Capt. Steve 940-841-0910 ... See MoreSee Less

Thursday was pretty tough with the high wind. Ended up with 25 and threw back a few overs. Friday was supposed to be cold but calm. That didn't happen , the wind picked up and the girls froze out about 11, I'm suprised they tuffed it out as long as they did. Off tomorrow and back out Sunday. ... See MoreSee Less
