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.

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

Looks great!

Dam the water look like what I fish in. What up a little rain.

Sounds like good personal satisfaction and the quieter ride will help your ears down the road as well as your clients.

Turned out real nice!
