I have debated sharing a favorite fishing hole with you, but I figure, what’s it going to hurt?
Lake Bixhoma in Bixby.
This gem is a tiny municipal lake that provides water for Bixby. I’m not going to help you with directions. You’re going to have to find it on your own.
Anyway, this is one of my favorite Bass fishing spots because of its proximity to my friends’ homes in Tulsa and its great fishing. What’s best is it gets very little traffic, so you feel many miles further from home than you really are.
In fact, yesterday (Sunday, Aug. 17) was the most crowded I have seen the lake in awhile. And the traffic? A couple of kayakers and maybe three or four fishing boats.
There are a few things to consider when going to this lake. There is no alcohol allowed. You must have a municipal license and you must have a municipal license for your boat. It is also a no wake lake. Perhaps these are the reasons the lake sees such little traffic.
Yesterday’s weather was great and following a full moon, we anticipated catching a lot of fish. I caught one; my buddy? Zero.
That was probably our worst day on that lake in memory.
