I was down there one April a few years back. Fished the lake a day and the tailwater a day from the North bank. Lost some big jigs and caught one about 30 off the bank. That will make you OK with a few jigs. Fished the lake with live shad with a guide. When it was on it was incredible as in fast. Nothing really big though, 5 to maybe 15. But when you have 30 or 40 of those in a day you think, "heck of a lake".

The only stripers I've ever caught were in Texoma. We fished with a guide and counted down big white spinnerbaits with big trailers to about 20 feet, then steady retrieve. We caught 15 or 20 fish. No giants, but lots of ~10lb fish. It was a blast.

We fished out of Bridgeport Resort. Daytime fishing was off. Couldn't find the shad. Water temp is cool for May and the lake just jumped up.

The only fish we could find was under lights at night. Fished tied up to the Roosevelt Bridge. Used ghost minnows just strung on a hook 30 feet deep. Caught mostly small stripers, one sand bass and a golden eye herring (cool fish!). But did catch a few big ones.

Nice to get away- great weather. Good friends.
