Where are good locations to go catch stripers, casting off the bank around north texas?
I know there is always Texoma and Tawakoni but tawak needs a large amount of rain to get that dam flowing... banana

The way to communicate with the fish is to drop them a line.
To argue on a fishing boat is to have de bait.

We don't call hybrids, wipers here in TX.... jk lol

Tawakoni has a spillway not a dam. We need lots of rain for any of the dams to release a good amount of water.

The problem is you no longer can get back of the dams in the Central Texas area on the Colorado river chain. We used to catch some great ones back of Buchanan and LBJ.

Good morning ! Lake Texoma also has some BIG FISH ! I have caught some BIG Blue Cats around the Marinas and there are also some Big stripers. Might want to book a trip with Cap't Cal on Texoma - (903)786-3499 or (903)624-9729 cell. I have been fishing with Cal for 20 years, knows where the fish are !

My son and friends are planning a camping trip in July to Possum Kingdom. Where would you go on Possum Kingdom to catch whites and hybrid stripers and/or stripers from the bank?

Why would they do that? Is this for the majority of spillways?

Granburry,pk,and Whitney have gone way down hill with golden alge. Fish are still present, but on all three you can no longer get all the way up to the dam to the good spots. The brazos does still produce some giant fish if you can find the right holes accessible by kayak below all three put out a gizzard shad under a balloon and hold on. Texoma always good Eisenhower park fish the dam pitch black kind of early in the am. Lake proctor really good from the bank now while the shad spawn at first light sowel creek park fish rip rap and all sand bars all the the way to gates of dam. Lots of topwater action poppers and walk the dog type baits, as well as chrome traps. Benbrook tawakoni and lewisvill can also be good off the bank. Here are a few from the last few days. I don't bank fish offer but it has been so good recently there is no need to take the boat. Might as well save gas.
