Come fish the Striper Capital of the World with Captain Michael “Mike” Mathias and Big Fish Texoma of Kingston, Oklahoma!
Captain Mike has been running trips on Lake Texoma for many years and started Big Fish Texoma to share his love and knowledge of these waters with as many people as possible. A trip with Captain Mike is about more than just catching fish. He will show you a whole new side to the lake while passing on all the tricks he has learned over the course of his long career. Anyone who’s fished for Stripers in Oklahoma knows that this is one of the best ways to have a good time on the water! The bite is great all year round, but you’ll want to head down to Lake Texoma during the winter months to see Stripers of record-breaking size. You’ll employ a variety of fishing techniques including jigging, popping, and trolling to try and land your trophy catch.
You and your guests will be heading out on Lake Texoma on a 20’ center console powered by a 150HP Yamaha engine. This vessel is quick and efficient for getting to the fishing grounds of Lake Texoma. You will find a wireless trolling motor outfitted on Captain Mike’s boat as well as a live well to keep your bait fresh, downriggers, and a casting platform for up to 3 anglers to fish comfortably without getting your lines crossed. A GPS and a fish finder are some of the up to date electronics you will find equipped on the vessel. All USCG approved safety gear is also on board.
Big Fish Texoma provides top quality rods, reels, tackle, and lures as well as fresh bait. If you do catch a trophy Striped Bass, we will either take proper measurements, so a reproduction mount can be made, (done for ‘catch and release’ fish,) or direct you to a local taxidermist who can freeze your prize for a skin mount. Just pack any drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy and don’t forget to pick up a valid Oklahoma fishing license before your trip.
On your trip with Big Fish Texoma you and your guests will go after Striped Bass and Catfish. Captain Mike wants you to know the difference between fishing for Trophy Striped Bass and Striper fishing. He aims to get you a “WALL HANGER “on the end of your line. That takes patience and sometimes a long hard day of throwing everything in the boat at them. Full Day, Night-time Railroad Bridge Fishing Trips, Bow Fishing, Fly Fishing, and general fishing lessons are all available upon request. Captain Mike will clean, fillet, and bag the fish you keep for you to take home.
Book your trip today with Big Fish Texoma for an unforgettable day on Lake Texoma. Captain Mike will give you a trip that will leave you with a lifetime of memories!

7 hours of trolling deep cliffs, shallow points, and some top-water/casting (if the birds go off or we see them up on top) mostly along the Washita River arm of beautified Lake Texoma, but with this trip, we may visit the dam, the open lake where the Red River and Washita converge. Or even the cliffs in front of Blake Shelton and Gwen Stephanie's house.
Don't worry. We catch plenty of table sized fish while we hunt down the monsters, but just be clear, we are not fishing to catch a limit here, even though we might.
We are chasing "Trophy Class" fish.
True "Wall Hangers."
When the trip is done we take photos, then clean and bag your catch. (Or prepare your prize for the taxidermist.)
*Must have a $12 Lake Texoma fishing permit. Available online. (no other liscence necessary)
