Welcome to Lake Texoma Striper Hunter Guide Service run by myself - Captain Stephen Andre! We are a top notch Lake Texoma Fishing Guides service and are fully Coast Guard Licensed and properly insured. I have been fishing the area since 1996 and enjoy seeing my clients catch stripers!
I specialize in artificial lures fishing for Stripers on Lake Texoma. Fishing with artificial lures allows us to fish from very shallow water to very deep water and gives us the opportunity to move around and chase fish and see the lake and the natural surroundings… it's all about being out there with nature!
I provide a custom 26 foot Falcon center console, a very comfortable boat, with lots of room to stretch your legs. I've got user friendly gear, and will clean and remove all red meat on your fresh filets to take home and cook. I am a fully licensed and insured guide service that will provide guided trips that will be memorable. I can provide guide services for little as 1 person or large corporate groups as well. Kids are welcome as well! Once we board my boat and are on Lake Texoma, I watch for schooling Lake Texoma striped bass or target them at specific structure locations in the lake that I have learned about over the years. The Stripers will migrate from the Lake Texoma dam, all the way upstream and back throughout the year depending on the season. The fishing lures we will use vary depending upon the season: swimming style baits in winter and spring, top water and swim baits in spring and summer, slabs and top water baits in summer and top water and swim baits in the fall. If the fish aren't biting in one location, we’ll move around the lake to find the location where they are biting. This will give you an opportunity to see beautiful Lake Texoma with its sandy beaches and large rock bluffs. You may see one of the many types of wildlife that live on Lake Texoma as well including deer, hogs, geese, ducks, ospreys and our American Bald Eagle in the fall and winter.
Lake Texoma was impounded in 1944 as the Red River was dammed up for flood control. Lake Texoma is approximately 1.5 hours north of Dallas. It is a border lake on the Texas and Oklahoma border with about 75% of its 75,000 acres located in Oklahoma. Its maximum depth is 110 feet and has numerous islands, river ledges, and underwater structure that attract and hold numerous Striped Bass and Sand Bass. The lake record is 35.12 lbs! Striped Bass were stocked in Lake Texoma from 1969 through 1974 and the fish have thrived since then and naturally reproduce allowing a liberal 10 fish limit per person.About Lake Texoma Fishing
I do not use live bait. I am a true to heart artificial lure fisherman. I get much more satisfaction tricking those fish with an artificial lure. My guide service is unique in that I only use artificial lures. I do not use live bait and I do not troll. We will hunt our fish down using structure, birds and electronics. We FISH with slab spoons, swim baits or topwater lures. We FEEL that fish bite, SET the hook and FIGHT them into the net! ....that's the way I grew up and to me that's FISHING! Fishing with artificial lures allows us to fish from very shallow water to very deep water and gives us the opportunity to move around and chase fish and see the lake and the natural surroundings. We're out there to catch fish and I will do what I need to do to make that happen.
Located within the Mill Creek Marina of Grayson County Texas, our home base is within close driving distance of Cambridge, Pottsboro, Denison, Sherman, Durant & many other local communities.
