Texoma at Eisenhower State Park This Round

Went Kayak Fishing yesterday for a chance at some Stripers. Launched at the boat ramp in Eisenhower State Park. Before launching though, stopped by the Marina Store and checked out the large Carp and Catfish that lurk nearby. Paid the $1 for the "fish food" and fed the fish. Bruisers are still there; unfortunately, they were the closest we came to a Bruiser this round.

Fished all day and saw lots of boaters, wind picked up later as well.  Worked the rocks along the shoreline and caught a 15" Smallmouth Bass after several hours without a strike.

Kept working the shoreline as well as deeper water without success for the remainder of the day. And then, while heading back to the boat ramp, notice fish were chasing the small minnows in the area. After a while casting to them, had a strike and a miss, and then short after the miss had a really skinny 18" Striper take the lure!

Had used Rat-T-Traps, Diving Crankbaits, Slabs and Crappie Jigs, and almost every lure in the tackle box. What finally worked... Blue/White Jigs that we bought from Dave's Ski and Tackle several years ago!

Overall, had a fun time. Sure beats work, and had another good workout. But, did see a couple of instances that reminded us to be careful on the water.

  • Someone was troubleshooting their boat; would not start. Was resting against the boat dock. Their kids were sitting in front of the boat on the dock. Engine started and was in gear. Boat went rammed the boat dock and nearly ran over one of the kids. Close call. Luckily, no one was hurt.
  • Jet Skier was on his jet ski towing a capsized jet ski. Not sure what happened but it looked like no one was hurt as well
Also, stopped by Denison Dam Tailrace to check out the water flow. Did not see fish, and noted the sulphur smell from the Lake turning over. Included some video in the clip below.

Till next time... Good Luck and Good Fishing!

Afternoon Round... Went Kayak Fishing

Decided to do some kayak fishing this afternoon. Opted for Collin Park Marina as we never been there before. Boat ramp was really busy and the parking area was packed.

Luckily, was able to use a parking area near the picnic/beach area. A short portage later, was in the water working the Tire Reef that surrounds the marina. Glad the kayak weighs only 38 pounds!

Fished the area for about two hours; action was slow with one missed strike and one little White Bass. Still had a fun time; even got a workout in!

Craft Fur Streamer This Time

Fished Bethany this morning. Late start; had some work to be done before we could go fishing. Used the 5-Weight Fly Rod and a Craft Fur Streamer we made earlier this year. Managed three Bass and a missed hook set this round. No Bruisers with the smallest one being a scrappy Fingerling Bass!

Crankbait Again This Round

Fished Bethany again this evening. Same setup as yesterday - a crankbait. Ended up catching several Bass; did miss a couple as well. No worries. Good to wet a line before the start of the weekend!

Another Round at Texoma

Decided to give Lake Texoma another go this Saturday morning. Put in a Highport Marina, and then paddled out to one of the Lake's islands.  Set up with a tandem-rig with a Rat-L-Trap on bottom and a Tube Fly Jig above it.

Caught little Stripers, a Catfish, and Gaspergou. The Stripers were caught trolling, sight casting from the kayaks, as well as wade fishing from the shallows. At times, had schools of Stripers boiling around us while wading!

Lots of fun, and had a great workout too!

Quick Trip to Bethany Lakes This Evening

Made it to Bethany Lakes this evening for a quick trip! Caught a Bluegill and a Bass.  Missed others but just was not quick enough to hook up.  No worries... sure beats working!

Did get a new lens cover for the GoPro; no more scratches!  Looking forward to try it out tomorrow while kayak fishing at Texoma tomorrow!

Lake Texoma for Kayak Fishing This Round

Headed up the road to Lake Texoma. Launched our kayaks at Highpoint Marina. Caught a few small Stripers and Smallmouths; lost a few as well. Also, caught a large Gaspergou, too! All went for Rat-L-Traps (or a knock-off of a Rat-L-Trap we picked up from Academy). Windy at times and lots of boat traffic; still had some steady action. Need to come back sooner than later as we did lose several decent Stripers that threw the hook!
