New Lake Hefner Record

A new lake record was set at Lake Hefner for Striped Bass when Clidell Woody caught this 16.1 pounder on March 18th.  The old record was 14.8 pounds set by Glen Burling in 2010.

Clidell caught it on the west side of Hefner near the spillway.  He was fishing for catfish using cut shad.

Hybrids arrive in Lake Hefner via the North Canadian River from Canton Lake.  

Striped bass hybrids are a hatchery-raised cross between stripers and white bass and are favorites with fishermen because they are fierce fighters. 

Lake Altus-Lugert Fishing Report

Fishing guide Jim Bevers on Lake Altus-Lugert next to Quartz Mountain State Park sends in this fishing report:

Fishing this morning, one of my clients caught this nice hybrid bass and forty sand bass, three walleye, and five crappie.  Things are picking up when the wind allows you to get on the water!

Tom Steed Hybrids Biting

Lake Tom Steed Hybrids are biting.
Aspiring pro Mike Diehl sends us this report from Lake Tom Steed:

Well Doug, it’s like you always say, “the weather only bothers the person fishing and not the fish”. The clouds were pretty dark this morning but I’m glad I decided to go fishing.

I caught these two huge Hybrids today throwing a small crank along the banks while bass fishing. These two Hybrids are a personal best for me and the fight was just fantastic. The hit and the hook-set was unbelievable, it felt like my rod and reel were about to be ripped out of my hands.

If I may, I would like to thank Russell and Dawnita Allard at the Windmill Winery in Roosevelt, OK for the use of their farm equipment. Without their help, I would still be moving dirt and rock around the house instead of enjoying the great sport of fishing.

Editor’s Note: Way to go Mike! How’s the wine?

Lake Sooner Fishing Report

Herb Asche, P.C. Team Bass Angler of the Year 2006, sends us this report from Lake Sooner:

Hybrids are really good off of points with top water chug bugs and such. The black bass are fair with buzz baits in the early morning. Switch to Carolina rigs and jigs off of points in the afternoon.

Editor’s Note: Thanks for the report Herb and good luck on the tournament trail this year. Keep us posted on how you are doing!
