Texoma Striper Fishing runs highly specialized fishing trips on Lake Texoma. If you’re looking to land a hefty catch, come and harvest Striped Bass with a seasoned captain. These waters offer some of the finest Striper fishing grounds, so you’re likely to have your bags filled.

Your host for the day is Captain John Brett. He has been fishing for Stripers for over 40 years, and knows how to land them. Angling for nearly twenty years on Lake Texoma, he is intimately familiar with these waters, and you will benefit from his skills and experience.

The captain will welcome you aboard his 26’ custom-built center console. She was built in 2003, and restored in 2017. The boat is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, and can reach speeds of up to 55 knots. She can accommodate up to 6 anglers. The boat is rigged with GPS, a fishfinder, has a live bait well, and the standard safety equipment.

You will be fishing Lake Texoma for Striped Bass. Captain John runs half day trips. They last anywhere between four and five hours, unless you catch the limit before that. The limit is 10 fish per person, with two over 20”.

These trips are private options and run year round. When you come onboard, the captain will provide rods, reels, and tackle, lures, and live bait. Bring a cooler to store your catch. Captain John will clean the fish for you so that you can take it home, and have a tasty meal.

You will need a fishing license. Bring snacks, and drinks, and dress adequately for the weather. You will also want to bring a camera to snap a photo of your bags filled with Stripers.
