New schedule book for 2021 so get your date reserved. 2021 is gonna be great. Lake Texoma is on a upswing of striper numbers and size so we should see some great boxes of fish in 2021. Price will stay at 125 per person but minimum trip is 500 for weekday and 600 for weekend days. ... See MoreSee Less

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

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.

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
