Topwater Action On Lake Texoma. Saturday, September 8, 2001. Lake level: 613.14. Water Temperature: 81 degrees. Water clarity: Stained. Generation: N/A Weather: low 66 / high 84 / cloudy /windy. Fishing time: 6:30 a.m. till 11:30 a.m. The Ingersol-Rand employees left the dock at daylight with Captains Joe, Rex, Mitch and Sparky for a successful morning of striper fishing. Each boat found a rocky point that the wind was blowing into and anchored in about three feet of water. Casting into six inches of water with topwaters or weighted bobbers with live bait a few inches under the bobber produced limits of silversides for every boat. A lot of the fish are over twenty inches long and have to be returned to the lake. â€œWhat a problem to haveâ€. When you see one fish break the water real close to the bank, stop and anchor or use your trolling motor to hold the boat off the bank. Cast your bait right up against the bank and begin your retrieve. You will be surprised to find out you can catch a limit on one stop. If you ever wanted to topwater fish, now is the time to come to Lake Texoma and enjoy the action. We have gotten over three inches of rain this month. As the surface water cools down and the lake is on the rise, the lunkers will start feeding and gain weight fast. Warning!!! Be careful!!! The lake is coming up, but it is still very low. Watch for the shallow points and floating logs and save a lower unit.
