We are probably going to Texoma this next weekend. I do not know what you are targeting but I can tell you what has worked for us. Find shorelines where there are very small, white rocks. Hopefully you can keep the boat in 5 to 10 feet of water. 1) Use a shallow diving crankbait like a Rapala Balsa Xtreme BX Brat. A lure that runs 0-2 feet deep, cast to the shoreline. 2) Use a 2.0 square bill to fish out deeper and more parallel to the shoreline. 3) Slow retrieve a 1/2 ounce spinnerbait with Colorado blades. 4) Last but not least; throw an Alabama rig.

In our Fall trips to Texoma, we have caught Stripers, Largemouth, Smallmouth and White Bass with these lures.

There is a high school tournament on Saturday just to warn you. Luckily the lake is huge so people will hopefully be more spread out.

I was out there yesterday for the first time and caught a couple fish on spooks and crank baits fishing near rocks. I talked to a couple other guys on the water who were struggling too. I think it was a tough day.

Ok thank you for the replies. We were actually able to land one early in the morning on a spinnerbait on some rocks. I'm actually a high school angler fishing in that tournament and since I'm not able to prefish the friday before I went yesterday. I was just wondering what they were biting on before the 5 day no info rule went into effect.

I ain't skeered. Texoma is a lake that is big enough for everyone!

It sure is. It took me forever to drive from the Eisenhower state park ramp to the Big Mineral Arm.

Good luck 23Harrison in the tournament. I’m fishing in it as well.

It’ll be windy on Saturday; y’all be careful out there.
With the wind, they might be chasing out there like pelagic fish.

Boating long distances in the wind on Texoma is a killer and a gas burner. The last time we went there, we stayed at Big Mineral camp. It is a long, rough ride from there to the Grandpappy Point area. We are staying at Lighthouse resort this go-around. Our favorite place to stay is Flowing Wells resort but in my opinion the Big Mineral arm is useless for bass. Too sandy.

The wind is supposed to be out of the South. Hopefully we will be able to fish shorelines with some land/tree coverage.
