Fished Texoma with Daniel uncle Kevin and cousin Ben today. We started off the morning fishing 2 ft of water in a little current. Only caught a few eaters our first spot so we went and looked for some better fish. Marked good fish in 20 ft around the striper so we set up a drift and pulled boards through em. We were marking good fish but just couldn’t get em going. After 3 hrs and 3 eaters we finally hung something good. Uncle Kevin popped a 30 lbr for his new PB. Wasn’t long and Ben got him one. Fishing was tough and it was a slow day but luckily we got a few good ones and made some good memories. texas

Glad you got to make your trip! Sometime a good fishing trip is measured by the pleasure of sharing with close friends and family. Looks like y’all fulfilled that! A nice fish and a personal best just made it better! I’m sure Daniel was a lot more enjoyable than the last guy we hit Texoma with. Congrats to all!

Thanks Amigos! For Lewisville I downsize my stinger rigs to accommodate for 8” baits Serj. My front hook is a 6/0 and the stinger is 8/0. I found that for Lewisville sized slot fish which are mostly 20 lbrs, this set up works best for 20-30 lb fish but I’ve caught a few 50s on it. I only run stingers on my planer board rigs. I usually use big chunks and filets on the inside rods with 8/0 hooks. When I know I’m gonna be fishing around true monsters i upsize my planer rig front hook to 8/0 and my stinger to 10/0 and increase my bait size to 10-12”. I also run a bigger float for the big baits. This time of year I go big. A lot of guys reading this right now are thinking you don’t need baits that dang big to catch big fish and this is definitely true but I have zero interest in catching box fish this time of year so I try to put on a bait big enough that nothing under 10 lbs can swallow it. Some times you gotta drift through a bunch of peckers on Lewisville to get to the good ones.

Dang sounds like a good combination Buddy. Thanks for the Tips!! thumb...I rigged some with the front hook in a 10/0 and stinger at 8/0 and vice versa....To me I will take eaters but love the trophy fish and I of course CPR. I mainly crappie fish but have the boat rigged for and still love to bluecat banana
