Lake Texoma Fishing Report. Lake level: 617.39 / Water: 56 degrees / Clear. Generation: 6:00 p.m. till 9 p.m. / one generator. Weather: low 43 / high 50 / south wind. Fished: Saturday & Sunday, December 15 & 16, 2001 Captains Joe Grigar & Mike Blakely took the Premier Dist., Mt Vernon, MO. group of ten out early Saturday and boated 103 stripers before noon. The silversides were feeding under the gulls west of Wood Island. Fishing live shad 30 feet deep in 35 to 47 feet of water proved to be the ticket for getting a strike on every bait. On Sunday it was cold and rained all day. The rain and cold didn’t stop these eager Missouri fishermen from having a good day of fishing. They returned to the dock with 88 stripers and 2 sandbass. Stripers are feeding all over the lake. They will continue to feed as long as the water temperature stays in the 50’s. December is a good month to try your skills lure fishing for a large striper. Sassy shad are working well west of the islands east to TI Point. Don’t miss out on this excellent winter fishing. Bass are slow to 4 lbs. Best lures are crankbaits, spinner baits and soft and hard jerk baits in shallow water. Grubs fished slow on the bottom are taking some bass also.
