About Your Trip

Head out with Jackie for an exciting day of Striper fishing on Lake Buchanan!

Lake Buchanan is one of the hottest striper fishing locations in Central Texas as a result of efforts by volunteers and stocking programs by the government. The striper fishing is excellent on this lake. The stripers start their yearly schooling & feeding activity in February.

On this 4 or 8-hour trip, Jackie will motor you out on Lake Buchanan to go
after some picture-worthy Crappie, Striped Bass and White Bass. You can target these fish using light tackle, by bottom fishing or creeping up on them with the trolling motor. This trip is great for beginners, and experienced anglers can have a great time too as they pile up the fish. No matter your skill level, Jackie will give you plenty of expert tips to help get some fish on the line!

You'll be fishing aboard a 23' Redfin Center Console with room for 4 people. Powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, this do-it-all vessel will have no problem getting you to the prime fishing spots. It comes equipped with GPS, a troll motor and Supernova LED fishing lights to make your day of fishing as productive as possible!

Jackie will provide quality rods, reels and tackle, and he'll also clean any keepers for you to take home! All you need to bring is a Texas fishing license, and we recommend sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat and any snacks or beverages you may want out on the water. Tight lines!

Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!

Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
