Striper Fishing on Lake Buchanan


Considered one of the better Striper Lake in Texas, Lake Buchanan is a big lake that hold nice stripper bass year round. During the summer time, downriggers are used in the deeper areas closer to the dam. We got a pair of downriggers with our latest project boat. With and a trip planned early in the summer we hope to have an opportunity the check them out. The rigger work and the fish are hitting on spoons around 20′. We now need a few cannon balls, release clips, and run power to the second downrigger mount.
