Your opinion please...

A. It's easier to catch a 30 lb striper from Lake Texoma than to catch a 17 lb striper from Tawakoni. T or F

B. It's easier to catch a 20 lb striper below Denison Dam in 2015 than to catch a 17lb striper from Tawakoni this year. T or F

OK, I'll play

A: F
B: T With only 3lb difference between the two locations it's a flip of the coin.

Thats really a tie. both are a huge feat on either lake. I'd say it's a wash. But if I were a betting man I'd say True.

True: never caught a 17 on Tawakoni or even close and below DD we landed 3 fish that were 13,14,14# and the trip after ours they caught a 25#

Thank you Holzer and DU SOUTH5 for playing. 17lb is 5lb less than Tawakoni current record, 30 lb is 5 lb less than current record for striped bass in Texoma. We have a split on the first question. Based on the actual catches the 17lb striped bass were caught twice at Tawakoni in recent years that I know... Does anyone know if a 30 lb striper ever been caught from Texoma in recent years? Second question B is easy, multiple 20+ lb stripers were caught below DD in the may and june 2015 already, but have not seen a 17lb out of twok yet this year.

Going forward, Texoma may remain very deep for many years, wouldn't you Texoma will produce a few 30# lb?

F and T. Hey I took that pic of Austin's 17 # striper on Twok! It was a "cold" 50 degree day and we had to convince VIP to join us.

congratulations VIP, I REMEMBER reading about it, some time ago on lakeguides boat, right? Do you remember how long was the fish? I might have made a big fishing mistake with my cheap scale...

Most tha guides catchy a few Striper each year I the 15-18lb class. So, just from the dock at holiday I'd say there are 5-10 a year caught in that range. thumb

Oh my... fishkiller, that's a monster! If that fish was pumped out of Texoma, which is most likely, it'd have been a new texoma striper record. Red River below DD had been at low level so long I wouldn't think 30# striper could survive, could they?

Thank you SeaproTod and blue wave Mike for playing, we're back to a split on the first question at 2 True and 2 False.

A. 2 T, 2 F
B. 4 T, 0 F

I wasn't sure how to interpret your call on the first Q, but it's all Kool and thanks for playing. thumb who knows maybe that was the only fish of 30+lb class or maybe there are more in main lake or in the Red River. I am an optimist.

A. 2 T, 3 F
B. 5 T, 0 F
