BEST WINTER STRIPER FISHING IN 20 YEARS
The size of striped bass in freshwater fishing lakes goes in cycles year to year. Since November the Lake Texoma Striper Express Guide staff have caught and released 100’s of Big Stripers over 10 lbs! Best overall winter fishing ever!
Lake Texoma boasts the nation’s most generous daily limit of 10 stripers per angler, only 2 of which may be over 20″ long. Most of these over-the-limit 10 pound+ fish we Catch, Photograph & Release (CPR). This is great news for our upcoming spawning season!
HOW WE CATCH WINTER STRIPERS
Techniques and fishing equipment we use here on Texoma are very similar to those used to find and catch Largemouth Bass in warmer months. We focus our winter lure fishing efforts on rocky and sandy points, creek arm channel ledges, mid-lake humps and shallow ditches; these yield bigger stripers every day.
COLD WINTER IMPROVES SPRING CATCHING Like up North our water temps stayed down in the high 30’s most of January and February then rose slowly to the current main lake temps of 46 degrees. Due to the colder water the lake has lost a some of the Threadfin Shad population while Gizzard Shad have survived nicely.
With the loss of some shad, stripers have been even more susceptible to our “shad-like” lures as our huge catch results indicates.
