Records of Fish Caught in Lake Texoma in Oklahoma and Texas

Lake Texoma, uniquely positioned among two states, usually has confusion encompassing its lake records. The reason being, equally the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation retain records of fish caught in the lake. As a result we have the luxury of obtaining two records of fish caught from Lake Texoma.Technically, you cross from Texas drinking water into Oklahoma h2o as quickly as you reach the Red River channel of the lake. So all record fish caught in the old Red River and on the Oklahoma facet of the waterway, belong in the Oklahoma report publications.In the course of the J.C. Outdoors tournament out of Alberta Creek October 10th, there had been two Lake Texoma documents caught. Joe Copeland caught and produced an 11.two pound largemouth to acquire the new Oklahoma Lake Texoma document. He landed the fish on a Texas rigged delicate plastic bait in the Alberta Creek location. This defeat the past Oklahoma largemouth record of nine.9pounds caught in April of this 12 months by angler Andrew Blalock. Josh Williams also caught a new Oklahoma Lake Texoma spotted bass file with a fish weighing 3.four lbs. The fish was taken on a crankbait in the Washita Arm of the lake.After reading about these fish, I needed to compare some of the Texas records to have a better understanding of the bass that Lake Texoma has produced.Largemouth: Oklahoma file 11.two caught by Joe Copland on October 10, 2009. Texas record eleven.82 caught by Kenneth Stone on January 13, 2000.Smallmouth: Oklahoma report 7.eight caught by Aaron Fridrich on a crankbait March 22, 2003. Texas report 7.06 caught by BASS pro angler Jay Fuller on a jig January 29, 2006.Spotted Bass: Oklahoma document three.four caught by Josh Williams on October ten, 2009. Texas file 4.38 caught by Chuck Bishop on November twenty five, 1988.All of these are amazing catches. It also proves that Lake Texoma, however getting 65 years aged, continues to be an excellent fishery.Upcoming tournaments on Texoma contain the Tackle Box Wednesday Evening Tournament "fish off". This is a 3 hour big bass function for these that qualified by successful one of the weekly contests through the 12 months.J.C. Outdoors will be holding the final a few of their drop/winter months circuit out of Alberta Creek Marina. The dates are November 7th, December 13th and January 9th. Twenty teams fished the 1st tournament on October 10th 17.23 took initial area.Chris Tolar, proprietor of The Tackle Box Store in Pottsboro, advised me of plans to host three or four daytime bass tournaments this winter months on Lake Texoma. These would be formatted as five-fish staff events that awarded prizes for overall stringer as effectively as big bass of the day. Dates will be posted as quickly as they are finalized.Modern rains have sent Lake Ray Roberts about its normal pool of 632.5 feet over sea level. As of press time the lake was a few feet higher and increasing. Because of to the influx of drinking water the adhering to ramps have been closed: Buck Creek, Pond Creek and Pecan Creek. All other ramps had been open as of Tuesday early morning, but more drainage or rainfall could jeopardize their availability.\nRelated Sites : Oklahoma Siding
