Black Crappie Fishing On Lake Texoma

Crappie, or Pomoxis is Greek for “opercle sharp” and refers to the fact that the fish’s gill covers have spines. The word annularis is Latin for “having rings” and refers to the dark bands (vertical bars) around the body. White crappie are deep-bodied and silvery in color, ranging from silvery-white on the belly to a silvery-green or even dark green on the back. White crappie has several vertical bars on the sides. Crappie’s dorsal fins have a maximum of six spines. Males can develop dark coloration in the throat region during the spring spawning season.

Black, White Crappie Distribution

The native range of white crappie included the area west of the Appalachian Mountains north to southern Ontario and south to the Gulf of Mexico. Today the range extends east to the Atlantic coast, and west to include California and portions of Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Montana, Colorado, Utah, and North Dakota. White crappie are native to the eastern two-thirds of Texas, but the species can now be found statewide except for the upper portions of the Rio Grande and Pecos drainages.

We had an amazing time! My husband is originally from California and owned his own charter boat. It had been several years since he had been fishing so I gave this is a birthday gift. I could not have chosen better. We had Donny as our guide and he was great. Very personable, Johnny on the spot helpful, and just made our trip! We are definitely planning on returning.read more

We took 10 out, 5 per boat for Sunday morning Striper fishing and true to his reputation, both boats caught a mess of fish. By the time the morning was over, the fish were cleaned, bagged and we had enough for a 15 member family, 3 generation family fish fry times four. Said another way, enough left overs for three more fish fry's and a lot of wonderful memories with our grand kids.read more

Amazing guide, we limited out within 1hr if being in the water. After that we caught for fun until the bait was empty. Thank you so much for making our family vacation a memory of a lifetime!

Captain Marty was great to spend the day with! For 2/3 of our group of 6 it was their first time with a guide. He was patient and didn't yell at anyone for missing a fish. Spending the day with him is a fun way to catch a lot of fish.

The weather started out pretty rough, w/ whitecaps and 20+ mph winds, but Captain Marty's partner, Captain Ron, took us out to the Oklahoma side away from the brown / rusty muddy runoff water and once we were anchored, he put us on the fish all day. Limited out on stripers w/ a 3-4 nice sized ones. My son and I had a ball and it was a very rewarding experience for a 10 year old to know he helped bring food to the table for the first time!read more

Our fishing trip with Captain Marty was Exceptional. The Captain took us to a location he said the fish were going to be waiting for us and he was right. We were there for an hour we pretty much had our limit by then. We had a great experience and plan to be back. Thanks, Tony Garciaread more
