January 16, 2009 Lake Texoma Fishing Report
Cooler water temperatures makes for HOT Lake Texoma Striper Fishing. Over the last few weeks we are seeing much larger
stripers being caught. The official Lake Texoma surface water temperature is 52 degrees with an elevation of 616.3. I'm mainly fishing west of Highport Marina. Some days we have seagulls to help
locate fish, but my last couple of trips I haven't seen them working. That is where your electronics come in handy. You can find fish now just about anywhere using your electronics. I am fishing mainly on
structures (ledges, creeks, humps, ditches, points) with live bait (Gizzard Shad) and mostly drifting. I have had a couple of great days of lure fishing on the really cold and overcast days, and these were the days we caught the best fish of the year. Bundle up and do
some winter fishing on Lake Texoma, it will be worth it.
Just a note to tell you, despite the wind, we had a great trip. Your knowledge of the lake and fishing techniques, got us on the fish.
The guys and I had a great time and look forward to doing it again. Thanks for a great time, George Mumma
Rocky, Dean, and I had a great time. We never knew fishing in the winter is the way to go. Much thanks, and tight lines! Robert Fugate
This is the time of year you should bring a bump board or tape neasure with you. We are catching a lot of stripers over 20 inches. The Lake Texoma
limit for stripers is ten fish a day with only 2 of them being over 20 inches. It is very exciting catching these fish but take the time to measure youe catch.
