Live Bait Fishing On Lake Texoma

Fishing Lake Texoma With Live Bait!

John Hanks from Louisiana & Jason Gray from Kansas fished two days with us. The first day the fishing was a little slow but John landed a 9 lb striper. The second day fishing was on fire. John and Jason landed over 50 sandbass and 3 big stripers all on slabs and live bait.

Striper

The striped bass is the largest member of the sea bass family, often called “temperate” or “true” bass to distinguish it from species such as largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass which are actually members of the sunfish family Centrarchidae. Although Morone is of unknown derivation, saxatilis is Latin meaning “dwelling among rocks.” As with other true basses, the dorsal fin is clearly separated into spiny and soft-rayed portions. Striped bass are silvery, shading to olive-green on the back and white on the belly, with seven or eight uninterrupted horizontal stripes on each side of the body. . .

Sand Bass - Dan Barnett

Sand Bass

White bass are active early spring spawners. Schools of males migrate upstream to spawning areas as much as a month before females. There is no nest preparation. Spawning occurs either near the surface, or in midwater. Running water with a gravel or rock substrate is preferred. Females rise to the surface and several males crowd around as the eggs and sperm are released. Large females sometimes release nearly a million small eggs during the spawning season. . .
