Pottsboro Captain Mark Walthall

289 Striper Guide is owned and operated by father daughter charter Mark and Ingrid Walthall, who have been fishing Lake Texoma for almost 4 decades. They've spent years at this famous Texas lake perfecting the best ways to catch Stripers. Head out in search of your own trophy with these local pros!


Explore these productive waters aboard a 30’ Crest Ultra, which was just fully restored in 2020, and is furnished with a 175HP Evinrude engine. With space for up to 6 guests, you’ll have the whole 360-degrees of the boat to fish while enjoying incredible scenery of the famous lake. The vessel has plenty of cozy seating space for everyone on board and a live well for bait and for bringing home your best catch of the day.


Get out to the rich waters of Lake Texoma and get your fish on. This massive 89,000-acre lake is home to countless fishing grounds where you’ll have the chance to vary your fishing techniques. Troll fish while you cruise along, or jig while you drift to entice the bite of curious Striped Bass. You will also have the chance to catch other species inhabiting the lake, as it is believed to be home to nearly 70 species!


A family man himself, Captain Mark welcomes children of all ages on board. Bring the whole family and get them hooked on the thrills of Striped Bass fishing. The Captain will provide all your fishing equipment and offers a complimentary clean and filet service after the trip. All angler's over the age of 16 are required to purchase a Texoma fishing license (it has to be a Texoma license) from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department website. Guests are encouraged to bring any snacks and drinks they would like for the day.


Don't leave it to chance, choose local experts Captain Mark and Ingrid and see why 289 Striper Guide has so many repeat clients year after year!
