<p>I have to apologize for being tardy, but with fishing and trying to get my new house ready to move into, I got behind. With this cooler weather the last couple of weeks, the fishing for stripers on Lake Texoma has been exceptionally good. The water temp is around 50 degrees with a lake elevation of around 615.5 feet above sea level.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
We hope all our friends and customers had a great Christmas and Holidays and we wish you all the best for the New Year. December has been a little slow as usual but we did have a few fishermen to brave the weather. We had 89 fishermen to date this month and they brought in 770 stripers to the cleaning table. December 4th L.E. Wehling and his group fished with us for two days bringing in 76 stripers. On December 8th Dan Clear brought his boys up to fish with us taking home 30 stripers. Webb Lockwood and his group fished on December 15th and brought in 32 stripers and one sand bass that was only .01 lb. of the Lake Texoma record. December 15th was a day for adventures. Tom McCullough and his friends Rusty, Shane, and Bill braved the cold and the wind plus a boat that overheated and had to be moved to another boat. They still brought in their limit of stripers. What a way to spend a Christmas Eve, out fishing on beautiful Lake Texoma. Scott Friedman and his family came in with 50 stripers and Scott was so excited that he gave his fish a big kiss. Tim Sims also brought his boys for a fishing trip on Christmas Eve leaving with 40 stripers to 7 lbs and 11 sand bass. Justin was on leave from our armed forces and we would like to thank him and all our guys and gals in the armed forces.

Last year was a good year with the exception of the flooding and having to cancel trips because of a fall I took, but I am ready to return and guide again. Wanting a nice charter with an experienced guide, please call, or email promptly to insure a good date. Check my web site for some photos of the flood of 2007, to show what most of the guides had to contend with! We were fishing in trees from submerged campgrounds, picking customers up off banks, taxi to and from our boats, but the stripers did not know it, as they were biting good, mostly on artificial bait. Enjoy the pictures and call for Spring Specials, and booking starting for this year. "JD"
