Capt. Steve Barnes Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Guide Lake Texoma striper fishing is really going strong, with the water temperature rising.
Capt Steve txfishingguide.com  Lake Texoma striper fishing is really going strong, with the water temperature rising the fish get more active. I made the switch from artificial bait to live bait last week, as I do every year about this time and the success rate has been 100% on getting limits every trip. The down side is that bait is pretty tough to catch. Floodgates were open most of the winter and my belief is that we lost a lot of baitfish that got flushed thru the flood gates and washed down river. Hard to predict what the summer fishing will be like with the bait numbers down but with my many years of experience I would suggest getting after them in May and June. I would also suggest you leave your cast nets at home and just hire a Lake Texoma fishing guide and let them worry about how to catch the bait. by  Capt. Steve Barnes Lake Texoma Fishing Guide

Capt. Steve Barnes Lake Texoma Striper Fishing Guide Lake Texoma striper Fishing has Really Come Alive
March 21, 2019 Capt Steve txfishingguide.com Lake Texoma striper fishing has really come alive this week with the arrival of spring. Big striper are on a feed frenzy getting ready to make their annual spring spawning run up the Washita and Red rivers. As the shallow waters warm fish move up out of the river channel to feed on shad. The fish are on the move so anglers need to be persistent and stay on the move looking for active fish. My bait of choice for early spring is a 5″ swim bait on a 1oz jig head. Trolling is also effective this time of year and on days when my customers can’t cast well we troll. The last few days the big striper have been on a tear and we have been releasing many over 20″ fish on recent trips. Remember limit on Lake Texoma striper is 10 fish per person but only 2 of those 10 can be 20 inches or longer. The good box fish will turn on as it warms up a little more but for now we will enjoy catching lots of big Texoma stri
