Lake Texoma is famous for its superb fishery. If you want to make the most out of your Texas fishing trip, 289 Striper Guide is the way to go!

Based out of Pottsboro, Texas, Captain Mark Walthall runs 289 Striper Guide with his daughter, Captain Ingrid Read. Who better to take you fishing than an experienced, passionate captain? Captain Mark Walthall has been fishing Lake Texoma for Stripers for over 40 years. He has spent a lifetime perfecting his angling skills. He loves sharing his passion with others and promises to do whatever it takes to make sure you fall in love with this thrilling sport.

Up to 6 guests are welcome aboard the 27’ custom-built pontoon boat with a 175HP Evinrude engine. Captain Mark’s vessel is light and agile. You’ll get to the productive fishing grounds in no time, before taking you to even the trickiest spots to cast away. USCG approved safety gear is on board as well as modern electronics such as a GPS, radar, and a fish finder. A casting platform and a live well for fresh bait is also on board. Try trolling and drift fishing with live bait as you look to entice the bite of some monster fish.

You’ll have everything you need for a productive day out on the water with 289 Striper Guide. Rods, reels, terminal tackle, and lures will be supplied as well as fresh bait. You and your guests will need a valid Texas fishing license before your trip. All you need to do is grab your drinks and snacks, along with a cooler to keep your fish fresh as you transport it home.

You’ll head from the southern shores of Lake Texoma in search of the prized Striped Bass. This tough-fighting creature is a must for any angler, so take advantage of this incredible opportunity to fill the boat with plenty of these beauties. You’ll also have plenty of action as you go after tough-fighting Catfish and Hybrid Striped Bass. Left to their own devices in this pristine lake, they’ll amaze you by their size. Come prepared to work up a sweat! At the end of your trip, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you, so you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor as soon as you get home.
