Lake Texoma August and September Fishing Report
The August fishing has been well above average. We are catching lots of stripers small, medium and large. You could call it a mixed bag of lots of fun! Early mornings it’s top water action. We have located some really nice fish. We board and depart at first light and cast Pencil Popper topwater plugs on the shallow banks. Recently we have had fish from 5 – 15 lbs. exploding on our plugs. Jimmy had a huge 40-inch monster striper throw a plug at the side of the boat. This action is just beginning and will continue till November. There is nothing more exciting than topwater striper fishing on Lake Texoma!
The topwater fishing is worth the price of admission but there is still more to come. After an hour or so of topwater action we change our technique and begin slabbing and jigging. The fish have moved up on the flats. We vertically drop the slabs over the side of the boat and bump the slabs a foot off the bottom. You will locate most of the fish from 10’ – 30’ depths of water. In September, we will cast soft plastics like the Coho minnow and Sassy Shad jigs. When you are on the perfect school of fish, you can have multiple hookups. That is when everyone onboard is fighting a fish at the same time. The temperatures are mild and the fish love it. Besides catching bunches of stripers, we also catch a lot of sandies (white bass).
