Striperman Fishing Guide Service

Striperman Fishing Guide Service is all about fishing for Stripers on Lake Texoma!  Here you will find some of the biggest freshwater Striped Bass in the American southwest.

Join Captain Gerald aboard his 30’ Silver Dollar Boat built in 2005 and restored in 2015. This vessel is powered by a 300 HP Mercury engine and comes equipped with the necessary fishing gear, life jackets, GPS, fishfinder, and a trolling motor. All that you need for quality Lake Texoma Striper fishing!

Spanning across the state border between Oklahoma and Texas, Lake Texoma is one of the largest reservoirs in the United States. Here, the Striper population reproduces naturally, rather than being farmed and released. They often grow to sizes as large as 15 to 20 pounds!

When it comes to Striper fishing strategy, Capt. Gerald says there’s no secret to it – he just keeps things sweet and simple. Ask for his advice on a variety of techniques, such as spin fishing, jigging, and drift fishing. You keep your catch, and Capt. Gerald will clean and fillet it for you!

Trips are child friendly, with room on board for up to 8 passengers. Be sure to bring a Lake Texoma fishing license, rain gear, and your own snacks if desired. When fishing with Capt. Gerald, he guarantees you will “catch a fish, and not a lemon!” If there’s no fish, you don’t pay!

Explore the beautiful waters of this prolific Texan lake by going on an adventure with Striperman Fishing Guide Service!
