Texoma is an 89,000 acre lake on the Red River bordering both Texas and Oklahoma which is widely recognized as a top fishing lake among all Oklahoma and Texas lakes. Lake Texoma to some, is one of the most popular recreation destinations in the Southwest.

Beautiful Lake Texoma is an ideal striper lake. The spawning habits of the striper make it unique as a natural spawning lake. Because striped bass eggs must remain suspended in a current until hatching, (about 48 hours), the above average salt content of the lake's water makes it the only freshwater lake where the Striper can reproduce naturally. Fertilized eggs are carried by lake water currents until hatching. This process is mandatory to avoid suffocation of the newborn. Other freshwater lake populations must be maintained by stocking and re-stocking fingerlings. Stripers are fast-growing and long-lived and have reached weights of over 40 pounds. Sexual maturity occurs at about two years of age for male stripers and at four years of age for females. They can reach a size of 10 to 12 inches in the first year. If you are looking for a fast action adventure in your life or a unique gift for a loved one, Lake Texoma Striper fishing with Dan Barnett can NOT be beaten.
The Striped Bass you will catch while on a Lake Texoma Striper Fishing excursion with Guaranteed Guide Service are some of the best fish you will find anywhere. The striper is the largest member of the temperate bass family. It is easily recognized by the seven or eight prominent black uninterrupted horizontal stripes along its sides. The stripes are often interrupted or broken and are usually absent on young fish of less than six inches.
Stripers are voracious feeders and consume any kind of small fish and a variety of invertebrates. Preferred foods for adults mainly consist of gizzard and threadfin shad, found in abundance in Lake Texoma. Like other temperate bass, they move in schools, and all members of the school tend to feed at the same time. This trait makes for fast and furious action for the fisherman once the school has been discovered. Lake Texoma striper fishing with full-time professional fishing guide Captain Dan Barnett is a guaranteed outdoor experience.
