Crosscreek Guide Service

When it comes down to exclusive trips on Lake Texoma, Crosscreek Guide Service is a great choice. The company specializes in putting their clients on top of the hottest bite in the “Striper Capital of the World,” which they have been doing since 1994.

If you want to explore the bountiful Pottsboro waters, Captain Jerry Dorsey should be on top of your list. He’s enjoyable to fish with, has a well-maintained and safe boat, great equipment, a 98 percent catch ratio, and a very competitive charge for his services. Jerry enjoys people and goes above and beyond to satisfy his clients.

Join your guide aboard his 22’ Triton center console. Built in 1999, this fast boat has plenty of space for up to 4 anglers. It comes powered by a single 250 HP Yamaha engine and is fully outfitted with everything you need for a productive day out on the water.

The boat is rigged with a GPS and a fishfinder to build up a clear image of where the fish are hiding. There is also a livewell and an icebox for the catch, along with all the necessary safety equipment.

On your day out, you will be able to try your hand at “kicker back” trolling method, which is your guide’s specialty. He will provide you with quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures to catch your limits of Striped Bass.

All you have to do is purchase a valid fishing license, which will be around $12. Your food and drinks are also welcome on board. Don’t forget to grab your camera with you to take photos with the catch!

Anglers of all skill levels are welcome to join in the adventure!

Captain Jerry Dorsey began guiding at 1994 and has been doing it ever since. He specializes in targeting Striped Bass in Lake Texoma. Jerry served with the USN for 6 years and spent 3 decades with the BNSF Railroad. He also was an avid tournament angler with a number of wins until 2014. Capt. Jerry is familiar with every method to land Striped Bass but now prefers the "kicked back" trolling technique. He also can use other techniques, whatever is preferred by customers. He has a website www.striperfish.com and post on Facebook daily under name Jerry Dorsey. He loves to fish,, and makes ever attempt to make your trip (4-6) pleasurable. For more information see website or check out Facebook. I prefer to depart at sunup each trip. Coolers are allowed but prefer to keep them small to allow for more room. You need a lake texoma fishing license, $12 any tackle store. Good for a year. Call now, I would rather be fishing!

Fish hungry!
Fish hungry!
November 24, 2020
Today looked dismal around 6 am with a two person crew arrive at new 7 am time, daylight time, with light rain and wind blowing 15 mph. I was worried somewhat , but after getting away, managed to find fish on side of pensula where wind was light, and loaded up with fish, Stripers, from 7 pounds down, limited out on the catch and back in, although tried couple spots for big fish. That was probably asking too much on this cooler, winds day. Nov 24, 2020.
