Fishing is lights out at Texoma, even with the flood and thousands of stripers that went over the dam, there is still PLENTY of stripers in the lake.
Not even sure when is the last time I fish out of my kayak on Texoma, I am guessing around Feb when I migrated to creek fishing.
We launched at 0400 hrs and headed straight to SBP, tried there for 20 mins before moving on towards the north islands. As we got close to the islands I can literally hear stripers feeding on shad. Every 15-30 seconds there will be a loud pop and we would blindly cast towards where the pop originated. This went on for close to an hour before they disappeared. ALL this action occurred in 3-4 ft deep.
When that play out we fished the flats. There were a bunch of overs tight to the bottom. I recall last year when I marked a "blip", I would drop a slab and slowly lift the slab 6-12" off the bottom they would smack the slab but not this time. Only way I could trigger a bite was through a horizontal presentation.
We did see sporadic schoolings mostly between 10-15ft of water and got lucky when a good school of overs busting shad 20 ft from us. My biggest of the day came from this school.
All in all, a pretty good day for overs. My buddy kept his limit of overs and I gave him mine.
All my stripers were caught on 2oz chartreuse slab except 1 that was caught on storm swim bait. Never had to fish deeper than 20ft today and trolling not required. 🤣
