Bill Brown is a life-long resident of the area and has been fishing on the lake since he was a boy. He has been guiding on Lake Eufaula for the past three and a half years. 
Bill guides for crappie year round because Lake Eufaula is one of the best crappie lakes in Oklahoma capable of producing limits every day.

Using the Live Scope system and Bobby Garland jigs, he fishes around preset brush piles, seeks out roaming crappie, and also fishes for suspended crappie feeding on the flats. Watch below and hear Bill talk about crappie fishing on Eufaula lake:
Bill also guides for catfish from November through March using different techniques. While it may be colder and a bit windier in the winter time, the rewards are big with the biggest catfish caught (so far) at 38 pounds!

New Lake Texoma Largemouth Bass Record

On March 3, Royce Harlan of Kingston hauled in a 12.4-lb. largemouth bass from the waters of Lake Texoma, nabbing that lake record spot and setting the stage for a great fishing season.

Harlan caught the 24-inch bass in the Washita arm using a soft plastic bait. The fish is a new record bass for Texoma in the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s lake record fish program.

“It’s always a thrill to catch a big fish,” Harlan said. “Everybody always hopes for that one big bite. I got it, and I’m thankful for it.”

Harlan released the fish.

New Smallmouth Bass Record

Ryan Wasser of Pocasset was fishing March 31 at Lake Lawtonka in preparation for an upcoming local tournament when he hooked a fish that he knew was special.

“The fish came to the top where I could see it, and I knew that I had a potential record type smallmouth on,” he said.

And a record smallmouth it was. At 8 lbs. 7 oz., the fish outweighs the previous record smallmouth by four ounces.

Wasser caught the bass on a ¼ oz. shakyhead lure from Flatlands Custom Tackle rigged with a finesse worm and 10-lb. test line. He was using a Shimano reel on an Abu Garcia rod. The fish measured 23 1/8 inches in length and 18 inches in girth.

SW Oklahoma Fishing Report

Future Pro Mike Diehl sent this Oklahoma fishing report from Lake Tom Steed:

The fronts, both warm and cold as well as the high winds have made fishing very selective at best.  

I did manage to get out on the 28th of April and land one nice bass and a sharp looking 23″ Saugeye.  

The water temps are still a bit coll but give it another week of warm weather and look out! bedded bass, hungry Hybrid and saucy Saugeye.

It’s hard to believe the water was this hard just a month and a half ago.

Lake Ft. Cobb 10.6 lb. Lake Record Bass

Lake Fort Cobb Oklahoma Record Largemouth Bass

When Charles Coffman of Ardmore nabbed a 10.6 lb. lake record largemouth bass from Fort Cobb Lake April 18, fisheries biologists were pleased, not only because the fish was the first known largemouth bass over 10 lbs. from the western Oklahoma lake, but also because it was caught in an area recently targeted for improving fishing opportunities.

The fish was caught from a new shallow-water brush pile near the new dock that was installed by Fort Cobb State Park and the Bureau of Reclamation. The brush pile, created by personnel with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, was part of an effort to draw fish to concentrated areas so anglers can enjoy improved success.

“We pursued the shallow-water brush project after results of last year’s bass sampling showed quick returns — adult bass found and used the trees within days — and it’s nice to see that it translated to angler success as well,” said Larry Cofer, southwest region fisheries supervisor for the Wildlife Department.

The shallow-water brush project at Ft. Cobb involved cutting and placing over 500 cedar trees in eight locations across the lake, and more than half of the trees are visible to anglers in no-wake zones of the lake.

“We already received several good comments from bass and crappie anglers and look forward to many more fishing success stories from Ft. Cobb,” Cofer said.

New Lake Wister Record Crappie – 4 lbs!!

Lake Wister Oklahoma Record Crappie

When Lake Wister angler Jon Duvall and his cousin Clint decided to take a few youngsters fishing April 17, they ended up catching very few fish, but one reeled in by Duvall was a real whopper by any crappie angler’s standards.

Duvall’s crappie weighed 4.2 lb. and measured 17.75 inches in length, setting a Wister lake record not likely to be surpassed for some time. He caught the slab on a jig in the lower end of the lake.

Up to that point, only one crappie had been caught — one landed by Clint on the first cast of the trip. Though Duvall said that first fish was a nice crappie and the fishing party was excited about a potentially great fishing trip, the fishing did not pick up.

“We fished and fished, but caught nothing,” Duvall said “Finally, right before it started to rain, I caught the biggest crappie we had ever seen.”

Editor’s Note: WOW!! Now that, I think, is the biggest crappie I’ve ever seen!!!
