Went fishing with Texoma Outfitter on April 10, 2023
Book a trip for two or three with Texoma Outfitters and Captain Tim, bring a few drinks and snacks, and have a great time! The stripers were biting pretty steady at the third location we tried, so we anchored and kept catching for the rest of the trip. Book a room in Denison or Sherman for the night before your trip if you're not close and not a morning person like me!

They had been catching good numbers in the weeks before our trip, but our bad luck a cold front blew in and turned the fish off. We were still able to catch some, and there were tons of fish we were able to fish through, so they are there and Captain John does a great job keeping you in the best possible places to catch fish!

Dress warm, the mornings can be very cold, especially on a boat. However the fishing is excellent especially if you find a good guide that knows what to fish with and how to work the waters. The fish are constantly on the move.

Tanglewood resort is a great place to stay; Very close to all the docks and good proximity to all necessities for a fishing trip.

Don’t trust the weather man in November. He may say it will be sunny and 65 but take warm clothes, we did and darn glad we were prepared.

I've been going around the last week of September/ 1st week of October. Real good weather at the time. Darren with DW Service will be the go to guy in my book.

Bring snacks and lots of water, if you are leaving in the morning you might want a sweatshirt. Be ready to reel em in when you’re captain finds the hot spots .

Be prepared for the heat! Other than that, the guides will take care of you and get you on the fish.

Lake Texoma is a huge lake with lots of different species of fish, we generally go there for the striper and the area is absolutely beautiful

Go early in the day and have a guide that knows Lake Texoma. We were fortunate with Mark. He knew the lake.

Patience as fishing in the heat can be frustrating as fish get temperamental. Can be hit and miss, but is usually pretty good.

Sunscreen, snacks, and a small cooler of water or Gatorade. Go to the restroom before you go out because you won't want to stop the action for any reason.....

You need a boat to get to the deeper waters if you're trying to haul out fish the summer.

Only fish in the morning. Ask a lot of questions about boat maintenance and past fishing trips.

A cabin in the marina where your guides boat is located is a convenient way to go.

Go fishing in the fall or spring. Texas tends to be too hot to fish in the summer.
