With school starting last week, Pat Proctor of Norman wanted to take his son for one last fishing trip of the summer before he started first grade.
So Pat, his 6-year-old son Grant, and his father, Bobby, former University of Oklahoma football coach, went to Texoma last week and slayed the stripers.
“We left Soldier Creek about 6:30 a.m. (on Aug. 18) and found some nice topwater action at 6:45 a.m.,” Pat said. “We caught about 25 fish which averaged 5 pounds.”
The big catch of the morning was Grant’s 10-pounder.
“Grant has a broken arm which made it a little difficult to get this big fish in,” his father said. “What a great way to end summer and send Grant to first grade.” The striper action generally slows on Texoma in September before picking back up again in October.
