Fishing Report

by Azreel | June 2nd, 2008

So, if you saw my last post you already know that Dez and I hit the lake over the weekend and hauled in our limit of Striped Bass. She’d been bugging me for a while to take her on a fishing trip, and we went on a few. Problem is, the girl is spoiled. She grew up in the Bahamas where the fish are as big as she is, and you can fish sunup to sunset and catch fish all day long.

Texas freshwater fishing is, by and large, and completely different experience. So, we went to chase after the closest thing to saltwater fishing that you can find in North Texas: striper fishing lake Texoma.

Striper are a saltwater fish that spawn upstream rivers and streams in freshwater. The can grow to fairly large proportions and live over 30 years. A few large lakes provide the depth and size necessary for the species to breed and spawn, and Texoma is one of those.

Well, the fish were off the spawn and had started moving into deeper water. We found most of ours congregating in the 15 – 30 foot depths off of ledges and humps.

It doesn’t look like she had ANY fun at ALL.

It’s been a good day.

I’m glad we hired a guide. At one point the Striper were hitting so hard and fast, he basically just helped us land them and rebaited hooks so we could toss them back out.

Here’s Dez and some of her 27″ and 26″ stripers.
