This past week, Luke traveled up to Lake Texoma and fished with his friends Guides Bill Carey and Chris Carey with Striper Express (www.striperexpress.com). They caught fish out in open water using jigs with 4 inch shad imitation bodies but also went back in a sheltered creek and used the 'Deadsticking' technique, which produced some of the larger stripers of the days. Click and listen to Luke and Bill recap this fun trip.
