Lake Sooner Oklahoma Fishing Guide Big Blue Catfish

Oklahoma Fishing Guide David Clark sent in this report from Lake Sooner:

What a day of fishing and catching. We started out catching Hybrids(wipers) just about as fast as we could keep the poles in the water. Then this BIG BLUE came along. Didn’t quite have the equipment for him but we made it.

After about 3 or 4 big runs and about 30 minutes we got him in the boat. Thought we was going to have to pull anchor, but ended up not having to. I was using 10lb test so I was trying to be real careful.

My scales wouldn’t go that high so I called a good friend and he put a calculator to it. The fish measured 47″ length by 32″ girth. When muptiplyed out that comes to 61 lbs. After we got the Blue in the boat the Hybrid bite slowed down (I figured the high fiven, dancing and hollering might of spooked them) so we moved to another spot and continued on there.

When we left after about 5 hours we figured we caught between 45 to 50 Hybrids. All of the Hybrids were caught on downlines on live shad, most were on the small side. The Blue was caught on live shad on a free line with a 1/4 oz weight, he was on the big side :). The water temp. in the discharge was 54degs.

Editor’s Note: Wow! What a great fish David!! Guess you are going to buy a new scale that goes up to 100?!? If you would like to go fishing with David Clark, contact him at 918-724-6786 or visit his site at www.FishOnOK.com.

Lake Sooner Fishing Report

Lake Sooner Oklahoma Fishing Report by David Clark of Fish On Guide Service Fishing guide David Clark of Fish On! Guide Service sends us this fishing report dated 1/25/09 from Lake Sooner:

FISH ON!!!!! It was a good day of fishing and catching. We started out and it was pretty cold(25degress) but when we got to catching some fish, eveything warmed up. The wind was blowing about 10mph out of the east, so I wasn’t sure how that was going to effect the fishing. After about the first ten minutes that question was answered.

We missed several at first, and then we changed to a small treble hook and then we started geting them in the boat. After about the fourth Hybrid, we caught a 26lb blue. Then it was nothing but Hybrids, a crappie and Striper. When we quit we had 40 fish it the box. We caught most on downlines on live shad, but we did catch a few on cut bait. The water temp. was 44degrees and we were in 35ft of water most of the day. FISH ON!!!

Editor’s Note: Thanks for the report and picture Dave. See – the weather only bothers the fisherman. Dress warmly and you can catch fish year round!! If you would like to go fishing with Dave, call him at 918-724-6786 or visit his website at www.FishOnOK.com.
