Looks like I'm gonna haul the boat up today & try to put my kid on some stripers in the early afternoon. Would sure appreciate any suggestions on general areas of the lake that are productive currently. We're lauching at Eisenhower park & I have a fair idea of where I can probably net up some bait nearby, then go find fish.

Not asking for GPS coordinates or anything like that - just areas like "Little Mineral Arm" or "north of the islands" to help me cut down on running around on the lake.

Thanks all!

I’ve been doing really well around Platter Flats and up to the train tracks, mouth of Alberta Creek has been particularly good. Birds have been very active and will show you where to fish. You’ll find active fish under the birds in 20’-30’, most of them have been perfect 19-17” box fish. I have been using either a 3” swimbait(sassy shad), or a 1oz slab. If the fish are stacked under you, drop the slab down and real it up through the school. If you don’t hook up, drop it back down and repeat. If the fish are more scattered, throw the swimbait and cover more water. Let it sink down a bit and use a slow retrieve. Hope this helps!

I appreciate it - helps immensely to narrow down my search to a medium size area. Looked at the weather forecast today vs tomorrow and decided to take my daughter fishing tomorrow. I can deal with chilly north wind. Her, not so much.

Well, we got out to Texoma this morning in a perfect weather window. Got the boat in the water, got my daughter in her lifejacket and in the boat. Had snacks packed, etc.

We idled out past the 'no wake' markers and I started accelerating ... and the starboard motor quit on me. Ended up going back to the boat ramp and will figure out what's wrong tomorrow.

Oh well . . .

Sorry to hear that Unc Zeke. I always have that fear of driving 1 1/2 hrs and not getting on the water. Good luck and good fishing.
