    Stripers caught in Lake Texoma

    Last week I took my wife and her sister and brother out fishing along with her sister's son. It has been a while since I caught some nice size striped bass like these. The largest was 13lbs and 31" long. I smoked them on my Big Green Egg and they were spectacular! I am taking us all out again this afternoon. Bill

    I don't think that would be much fun, but I have never done it either.

    Yes, I really enjoyed that day. Unfortunately, it started raining soon after we got out on the next trip so we came in early. Thanks, Bill

    We have stripers in Lake George on the St John's River.
    When I was a kid, dad and my older brother chased stripers all over Lake Moultrie outside of Charleson, SC.

    Was it a stripper or a striped bass?

    I know they have been introduced to many US lakes. In Lake Ouachita in Arkansas, they catch them up to around 53lbs!

    They are a natural species here on the river.

    When they damed up the Santee Cooper River to creat Lakes Moultrie and Marion in SC, there were stripers already in there. They grow big there too! And you don't want to talk about catfish in those lakes. I saw a mounted one that weighed 93 pounds.

    93lbs is huge. There is a guy here at Lake Texoma who caught a monster 121lb. Bill

    I had a friend who lived in Texas who said there were some catfish bigger than Volkswagons! He thought everything was bigger and better in Texas. Once we were fishing offshore for grouper. He complained about the Florida size of sardines. I told him that I supposed when you ordered 5 pounds of sardines in Texas, they give you half a sardine.

    Hey I'm from Texas and as a Moderator I can Confirm that everything is bigger here....even our egos.

    Actually Cuda, if you want 5lbs of sardines, you get 1/2 a fillet

    Nice catch Bill, never been striper fishing myself....tend to just play in Plain water, maybe I need to get up your way and give it a try.

    I mean if Mr. X has done it....I should too

    Yeah Jefe, you might want to correct that racist slip of the keyboard.

    My dad says to find Texas, you go east until you smell it, then south until you step in it!

    That sounds intriguing, but I have not seen them before - huge?
