Barry of Fox Sports Outdoor filmed this weeks episode on Lake Texoma.  He said it was very frustrating because he was marking tons stripers but having trouble catching very many.  Sound familiar?  He resorted to a very small jigging spoon and did not jig it but about 2 or 3 feet and jigged it rather slowly.  The stripers he did catch were very finicky.  He normally uses a 5 or 6 inch spoon and fishes it horizontally and aggressively.  He attributed the stripers behavior to the fact the lake just started to stabilize in the last couple of weeks after being 31 feet above normal.  I'm sure it being August and early September doesn't help either.

The fish I have caught (not stripers but sand bass) I've caught with a small 0.75 ounce slab.  Not slabbing with the normal motion but basically just jiggling the rod tip; not much movement of the slab.

Maybe we should start "dead sticking" a little early this year!

I caught a nice 6'lb striper in front of the islands last week on a dead shad.
