Lake Texoma Fishing Report
February 25, 2014...It seems lately I have been giving a weather report rather than a fishing report. I do apologize for that but to me it has been cold, and glad I have not fished that much. I had expected warmer weather, which is the usual at this time, but I suspect that is some couple weeks away. What I am doing right now is some artificial, such as deadsticking, and tossing rubber, but my main interest is to restock my equipment, preparing for whatever it might take to get my customers the most, and biggest fish, on every trip. Spring Break the second and third week of March is near, and I have lots of open dates, as seems no one wants to even book anything, while they are cold. Does there seem to be a pattern here, exactly. The only problem with that is the early bird gets the worm, or in my case the better days. The importance of getting dates set, is to insure, the date you want naturally, but also to get reservations set for lodging, if you stay overnight. Weekends always book up fast, and weekdays are sometimes pretty plentiful. My 22' Triton is ample room for 6, but my 20' falcon I limit to 3 or 4 at the most. My wife JoLean guides out of the falcon boat, and do not be fooled, she is a lot better guide than most men out there.
She will be out of service for a few weeks with knee surgery, and her son, will fill in, most probably. He is very handsom, bench presses 400 pounds, but no he cant outfish me or her, but will some day. He loves fishing, and although having a regular job, will be assisting now and then. A word of advice for those cute little girls, I book my boat before I do his. Next month, since we lost a lot of live bait from the lake, (because of real cold water) I may have to resort to trolling or long lining, which produces large fish. As it gets warmer, I will go to live bait, with less big fish, but mostly all times, get a limit. Make no mistake about it, I will work to get you the biggest fish, and a limit, each time I go out, regardless of conditions. The main thing right now is to get the guide you want, and get those dates booked to insure accommodations, and the right guide for your charter. I have done this for over twenty years, and always work hard to keep you entertained and catch a lot of fish.
This lake is a fountain, filled with fish, for family, oh sorry, I always wanted to be a poet. Call now and ask for JD or JoD.
We guarantee you a wonderful time, and catching fish is the bonus......."JD
January 25, 2014...Well Happy New Year to everyone. After my last fishing report, I felt I needed to update things going on here at Lake Texoma. We have had lots of cold weather, as I am sure you have experienced the same unless you are a good distance from this area. I have not done a lot of fishing, mainly because of high winds and real cold conditions. I can tell you one thing, there is some good fish being brought in, but this is not constant, on a daily basis. If you are in the location where the fish are hitting, you can bring in some huge fish, but it is unlikely that you will get a limit. It is hard to figure out what the fish want, so I have to take several different selections, and use what color/method they are wanting. There is hardly any bait fishing going on, as the fish are too selective, sluggish, and have to be lured into feeding, but the results are amazing. If things go as expected, unless warming is higher than expected, this will continue into February to mid March. Spring break, the 2nd and 3rd week of March, things begin to change, and if the winds are not too high, results are better, and somewhat easier. I do not guarantee fish during times that it is hard to get from one place to the other, because of weather conditions.
Other than that I guarantee fish, and if it is my fault, and lots of others are getting their limits, 10 fish per person, I will refish your trip at a later date. Not many guides will do this, but I do not want people to come a long distance, and not get fish. I call assure you that striper are great to eat, after I get the red meat out, and your fish are all meat fillets, and ready to eat. I am getting lots of calls now, so if you want to set up fishing trip, get in touch with me, to insure the date you want. Low water conditions here, will not affect the fishing, other than us having to watch low water areas for structures. Striper are extremely good fighters, so get ready to hang on, as the challenge is on! I provide everything in the way of fishing, so all you have to do, is get ready for an outstanding day on the water, catching great fighting, and great eating fish. Look forward to hearing from you......."JD"
