We had a great summer on Texoma this year but summer keeps dragging on. I'm ready for some fall weather and if the forecast is correct we should finally see some cooler weather next week . Fishing is still very good despite the heat but the cooler weather will improve the fishing and make it even better. I have been trolling A-rigs but have heard of fish being caught on slabs,swim baits, top waters, and live shad. Fish have been schooling up on the surface in just about every depth of water but primarily on the flats in 20-40 foot. The cold fronts will bring gulls from up north so schooling fish will be easier to locate. Fishing should be excellent and very consistent from now until it gets very cold in January or February. We might hit a little bump in the road when the lake turns over in a few weeks but it will be short lived. Bigger fish will get more active with the cooler weather. Boat traffic has made the weekend fishing tougher this summer but should ease up some with hunting season getting started. Fall is a great time to fish Lake Texoma so call or text me for available dates. Capt. Steve 940-841-0910 ... See MoreSee Less

Crazy day on Texoma today. Started out with this cool green frog on one of my outboards. Fishing was good and we caught a solid limit of striper. Highlight of the morning was when this 100+ lb gator gar decided he wanted to eat one of our trolling rigs. Roped him and took a few pics then released. Got back to the boathouse and my green frog was still on board. It's gonna be a great fall for fishing on Texoma. ... See MoreSee Less

Good work Capt Steve Barnes

Finally got out after the storms. Strange day, lots of sharks in bait balls but they were hard to catch, seems like they only wanted the tiny minnows in the bait balls, only caught one big blacktip . Bite got good for a little bit and we caught snapper,kings , one Dorado, and a giant stingrays. ... See MoreSee Less

Made it to Port O'Connor today. Trolling motor on bow and transom of my 31 foot work great but needed a little more run time. Added 3 more batteries this afternoon. It was so hot in my boat storage I'm pretty sure I could have cooked a pizza so it's not my prettiest work. Gonna test it out tomorrow ... See MoreSee Less

Tarpon fishing out of Port O'Connor, Tx is coming soon. I will be striper fishing on Texoma till mid August then headed to Port O'Connor for mid August thru September. My primary focus will be tarpon fishing but we might catch a few toothy critters if someone just needs to pull on something big. Tarpon are one of my favorites to catch because of their size , acrobatics, and difficulty hooking and landing these prehistoric beasts. Probably finish up with a week of redfish at the jetty late September early October. Let me know if your interested in a Saltwater adventure. Capt. Steve 940-841-0910 ... See MoreSee Less

Waters a lil more calm in these pics than when we went.

What do you charge for a tarpon trip?

Not sure what is more fun. Tagging a tarpon or boosting double blacks in arkansas?

Steve what’s your prices

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
