Looking for a striper guide for my bachelor party coming up. I am thinking Texoma but would consider other lakes in Texas as well.Will probably book for the later half of October. If anyone has any recommendations/ pricing it would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

Chris and Bill Carey with Striper Express will do yall right, they have a nice fleet of boats with excellent guides.

$450 for up to 3 then $150 per person over that if I remember correctly.

Only other lake I might consider in Texas for striper would be Tawakoni (book with Michael and Terri Littlejohn with Lake Tawakoni Guide Service) or also Buchanan but no recommended guides down there

You cant go wrong with Carey's. I do believe they fish primarily artificial. For live bait check out JD Lyle. The Littlejohns on Tawakoni. Possom Kingdom fish with Randy Wood or Kerry Dugan. Buchanan fish with Jackie Headrick, Graham Vandregger, or Max Milam.

James Allen and Shawn Morales out of Catfish Bay Marina on Texoma are awesome dudes to fish with. 23ft Falcons with swivel chairs and great gear. Sit back, drink, and reel them in!!
Also, both use live bait as much as possible so you get to hold the rod and feel the bite. None of that down-rigging and crap where all you do is reel when there is a fish on.

Look up Michael and Terry Littlejohn on Tawakoni. They area tearing up the striper and sandies right now. They are great people and have a great group of guides that work for them.

This... I've fished with them over a dozen times. Never had a bad day. Winter cats are huge for them as well. Any other time of the year, they can put you on Stripers, Hybrids, sandies, and crappie

Yes sir they are awesome. I was looking on my phone but i couldnt the pic, we smashed a big cooler full of crappie this summer with them by the dam. The guide Mike showes me his honey holes of brush piles are. I now know where and how to find them on my graph.

You'll catch bigger fish on whitney than texoma. They have been catching good numbers at texoma though.

Thats true but you can only keep two over 20" if my memory is correct. Most of those box fish on Texoma are 12-14". Give me Whitney and big fish everyday. Another Lake with big fish is Possom Kingdom

I've been up there a dozen times with the two guids I've mentioned and most of the box fish we get are 16-19 inches. We will catch some that small sometimes but they go right back in unless injured.

They're the worst about running somebody over catching crappie to mark what your fishing. That gets old quick.
