Launched at Caney Creek. I could not believe how high the water is! Normally, I have to back way down the ramp, but now, I had to park the car in the road, as the whole ramp is under water. High water is nice but those big ole weeds that grew up last year are hard to fish in.
Caught 7 small stripers and some throwback sand bass. All the stripers were young males. I kept the three in the picture below that ranged from 16-21 inches. Lots of folks camping. All had been catching a few small stripers. From what I'm seeing they are biting if you can find them. Lots of top water action going on with little 12 inch fish.
I also caught two catfish. I hung up on a shoal and went back to retrieve my lure. When I pulled it free, I had a big fish. Turns out it was two blue cats that were on a jug line that I had got caught up in. I released them.
I have to say Texoma has not been too nice to me this year. High water has all the big stripers off making little stripers (off somewhere I'm not fishing for sure). The crappie seem to be gone. I've only caught a couple. Maybe it will get better.
Pk has been strange this year too. Lots of water coming in and the lake is murky. The huge sand bass schools I'm accustomed to are gone, replaced by schools of small stripers. PK is going back to what it was before the Golden Algae, a striper lake.
I'm sure looking forward to reports by non guides that they are sacking them up. I haven't seen them. Even the guide reports are kinda skinny.
