Trip Information

Guided fishing trips with Sport Fishing Texoma can last up to six hours, but the length of a trip is determined by how the fishing is going. We will try to keep you out on the water for at least four hours even when the fish are really biting. If we reach our limit of fish and they are wounded bad enough that they can’t be released and live, then we will stop fishing.

As a general rule we will try to keep most of our limit as we catch the fish. Then we can catch and release fish from that point so if the fish stop biting we don’t go in with just a few fish.

With Sport Fishing Texoma you’ll fish with the latest equipment on the “Joanna Gail,” a 22’ Pure Bay Blue Wave 2200 named after Captain Kurt’s wife of 30 years.

Boat, gas, rod and reels, artificial and/or live bait, life jackets and all other necessary equipment. We will bait your rods, unhook your fish and keep you entertained! We will clean your catch and put them in quality freezer bags for you to take home and ready for you to cook. (A 10-fish limit usually produces 1 gallon bag of fillets.)


  • Fishing license. Two-thirds of this lake lies in Oklahoma. Anglers with Texas licenses may fish in the Texas portions of the reservoir or purchase a Lake Texoma license for $12 to fish the entire lake. See additional information about fishing licenses for the lake.
  • Camera
  • An ice chest packed with your lunch, drinks and snacks.
  • An empty ice chest to transport home your fillets.
  • Dress in layers so you can take off and put on clothing with changes in the temperature. Even in late spring the early mornings require a jacket of some kind.
  • In the warmer months you will need a hat, sunglasses and sunblock.
  • Wet weather gear – a poncho or full rain suit. Umbrellas and trash bags won’t do the trick.
  •  The MOST IMPORTANT thing for you to bring is a great attitude. Let’s have fun!
