Striper fishing using live bait cannot get better than right now. If you have ever wanted to feel the excitement of reeling in a hard fighting striped bass come to Lake Texoma in the spring. Shad are still very hard to find in Texoma. Some people are bringing in shad from Lavon, Tawakoni and Lake Dallas. We are catching about twenty gizzard shad a day in Texoma. So far, we haven’t been able to tell a difference in fishing with shad or shiners. The north side of the lake produced the largest catches with limits up to seven and one half pounds for our four boats today. Overall the stripers are feeding from west of the Willis Bridge to North Island, north to the Cross, east to Washita Point and north to the Roosevelt Bridge. The next good rain west and north of the lake should complete the spawn. Look for the stripers moving to the main body of the lake after the spawn. From now thru June, striper fishing will be at it’s best on Lake Texoma. Come enjoy the fun and excitement of reeling in freshwaters hardest fighting fish. There will be a lot of boats on the lake in the next few months. Stay alert and practice safe boating.
