Lake Texoma Fall Bass Fishing

Lake Texoma fishing guide
Most people know Lake Texoma as a great striper bass fishing lake, but it also an excellent fishery for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, blue catfish, crappie and sand bass.


Recently, a friend and I went fishing with Ray Farrior, owner of Snowgoose Guide Service.  We did a combo trip - fish for our limit of striper - and then go on the hunt for big largemouth and smallmouth bass.


We had a GREAT trip with Ray, catching lots of stripers by the Roosevelt Bridge.  And I must say, Ray is a professional through and through.  His boat was impeccable; very clean, well organized,  and safety gear readily available on both sides of the boat.  I was very impressed with how he approaches his fishing guide business.


Although the stripers are a bit smaller than usual this year due to the shad die off over the winter, Ray still got us right where we needed to be and the action was excellent.  The trip took a very interesting turn after we limited out on striper and went on the hunt for bass.  My friend hooked into something big and it took awhile to get it in the boat.  Once he got it close to the boat, we all could see that it was a monster largemouth!  He ended up catching the biggest bass of his life - and the biggest bass ever hauled into a boat that I've been in - an 8.5 pound HAWG!  It was awesome!!  I was also able to get some video - take a look at it here.


I highly recommend that you book a fishing trip with Ray Farrior on Lake Texoma.  You will have the best trip of your life.  Thank you Ray for an awesome fishing trip!!
