Hey everybody, just like the title says, I need some help for Texoma next week. My Colorado hunting trip had a last minute change of plans so I'm taking my parents to Texoma next week and staying the whole week fishing with them. We will be chasing stripers, bass, and crappie. We have only been on the lake one time, the best I recall we stayed around the lighthouse marina area? This time we will be staying at Eisenhower State Park. I have been reading the fishing reports for various species and searching here and the census seems to be that most reports are very vague and useless at best. I will be posting this on the other specialty forums for selected species of fish we will be chasing. Not looking for honey holes and coordinates but I would really appreciate where to focus our efforts( areas of the lake) and with what tackle for anybody that minds helping me out. We have a 19 foot skeeter to fish out of so as long as the wind helps us out we should be able to get to wherever we need to. I will say that I like to jig for crappie and not much on baiting with a minnow and waiting so theres that. Thank you all for anybody that has any suggestions and tips, very much appreciated!!!!

Look for brush piles along the shores and lake points Crappie on Texoma are shallow are around the marinas but brush piles are the key. Are you can go over to the OK. side and fish the marked brush piles just look for them on a lake map I have had alot of good luck fishing them.

Texoma really doesn't have timber. The fish will hold onto the poles around the marinas just like it would timber in another lake. I would work them 3ft deep and all the way down to 12ft or so. And I am not a "color" guy but pumpkin/chart is a killer combo on that lake. And I have always had my best luck with very large baits.

I've only been up there twice but caught a lot of fish and won one tourney there in 2016. We never left Big Mineral either time. The lake was coming off a big flood then and we did best on steep banks finding cedar trees that washed off in the lake from the floods. Gingertruce and Bad Shad were hard to beat on that lake both times we went. Scan for brush and don't be afraid to fish shallow. thumb

In the 20 years I have crappie fished Texoma, I have only left Big Mineral 2-3 times. So many good places to fish there.
