Q. What boat will we be fishing out of?
A. We will be fishing out of a well equipped brand new 2015 model 27ft. Charger Pro Guide Series Center Console with a 2015 model 300 horsepower 4 stroke engine. This boat was custom built to give us more room and a smoother, dryer, more comfortable ride.Lake Texoma can get rough and this big boat is fantastic in the rough water. I can comfortably seat 8 fisherman without being crowded at all.
Q. How long does a striper fishing trip last?

Q. Is there a restroom on the boat?
A. There is no restroom on the boat. At anytime you need to go to the dock for a break. It is your trip. Your day. I will take you there no problem.
Q. The last guide I hired at Lake Texoma took us back to the dock after we caught our 10 striper each. It was only 7:45 am. What happens if we happen to limit out after only an hour or two.
A. The one thing that sets me apart from so many striper guides out there is I will NEVER “rock and dock” my customers. I remember striper fishing with a guide at Lake Texoma as a teen and being on the way back to the dock at 8 a.m. because we caught our limit early. I hated that more than anything. If we pull an early limit of stripers and you want to stay and fish. We fish!! I can not count how many of my customers have told me that they have never had a guide let them catch and release after pulling an early limit. I have done it time after time. I appreciate every single striper fishing trip and work my hardest to ensure that you become one of my repeat clients. Your day on the water should not be cut short because the striper fishing was great.
Q. I like to fish with my own fishing rods. Is it ok if i bring my own?
A. I use Swedish made Abu Garcia Ambassadeur 5500 and 6500 reels with 7′ med action Ugly Stick rods. They are absolutely one of the best combos for Striper fishing Lake Texoma. However if you have a favorite or favorites. I will be happy to rig it for you and let you catch away on your own rod/rods.
Q. I hesitated to post this question but it gets asked more than any other…..Is it OK to drink a few beers on my fishing trip?
A. It is your trip. Your money. Your day. I do not mind at all if you sip a few cold brews while enjoying your day on beautiful Lake Texoma.
