Fishing is picking up and October should be great. Also October is a good time for fishing bigger groups up to 8 all together on the same boat,up to 10 if you have some lightweight's. Schedule is getting pretty full but still have a few dates open. ... See MoreSee Less

When you're out on the water every day during the busy fishing season those 100 hour oil changes come around way to often. On the bright side Mercury 4 strokes are the strongest most reliable , lightest, and by far easiest to maintain. Mercury went above and beyond to make all the new four stroke outboard easy to maintain for anyone with at least some mechanic skills. I can change motor oil,filter,gearcase lube,grease and ready to go in about a hour on my twin Mercury 200 Four Strokes. Over 200 hours now and love these new v6 200's ... See MoreSee Less

Fun time this morning!! Thanks again.
Oh my goodness. I can’t wait for our trip in a few weeks. Looks awesome
70 by 9:15 this morning. Full on combat fishing. I just can't understand what makes some of the guides on Texoma think that its ok to drive thru the middle of boats and schooling fish half on pad making a huge wake. I just don't get it. ... See MoreSee Less
Great box of fish today. Lots of barley under 20" fish and released about 20 more fish over 20". ... See MoreSee Less
Summer is here on Lake Texoma and the striper are doing what they are supposed to be doing, kinda. May and the first half of June was a wide open live bait bite with quick limits on most trips then all the sudden the fish got finicky and hard to catch on live bait so we started trolling a-rigs. The first week of trolling was a slaughter then those fish moved on us and we had to work a lot harder to catch. Seems like it was just different every day there for a week or so and it didn't matter what bait you used. Some days live bait was good then other days artificial was the way to go. Seems like the past few days the fish have schooled up better but the downside to that is everyone is trying to stay on the fish and it can get a little crowded. Most everybody plays pretty nice but there always seems to be one or two that just drive thru all the boats making a huge wake and spooking the fish. July should see some good striper schooling action on the lake and hopefully it will carry over into August.

Quick trip this morning. Time for 100 hour service on the new Mercury 200's. Since Mercs are easy to service I figured I would get it done this morning then back out fishing this afternoon. ... See MoreSee Less

Fished a group of 6 this morning then as soon as we got fish cleaned I helped Dale with a group of 14. We both got on some fish at about the same time and loaded up 70 fish in each boat quick. Fishing is as good as it gets right now for limits of good solid fish. ... See MoreSee Less

Well almost 100 hours on the new Mercury 200's. All I can say is wow. I have always been happy with 150's on this boat but since the new Mercury Fourstroke V6 200 only weighs 20 lbs more than the 4 cylinder 150 I figured why not. My 200's are faster,smoother,quieter, and get better fuel economy. Very happy I spent the extra money especially when you need to beat a storm back to the dock. ... See MoreSee Less
I have been ask the question " What do striper look like on sonar"? Well this is what your sonar will look like when you get on a wide open live bait striper bite. ... See MoreSee Less
