Texoma on Sunday afternoon
Liking this report from Texoma!
Texoma on Sunday afternoon [by didja getny]
I went to Texoma yesterday afternoon. Put in at the dam and scouted for at least an hour before I found fish. But when I found them it was on! First school I found was 6" dinks. After they cruised by they were followed by a healthy school of overs. From this school I landed a couple of 6 lb'ers, then hooked one quite a bit larger. I fought it for about 60 seconds, then it popped off. Hooked another good one and it popped off. Then a third.....that popped off. There's a moral to this story: check your hook! Apparently I had bent the hook on the first big one, and lost two more being too lazy to check my hook.
As it turned out, the two 6 pounders were my biggest fish. But I caught countless 16" to 20" fish......along with a bunch of dinks. I caught all these fish within 40 yards of the bank, so you guys with float tubes and kayaks can get to them. I found them in 8' to 17' of water and used a T6 full sink line to get down to them. And, as usual, I used a very Purdy clouser to catch them. For any who are interested, I'll share locations in a pm.
