Texoma yields second state record fish "March madness" is often used to describe the frenzy of college basketball, but a different sort of March Madness is happening to anglers fishing Lake Texoma. For the second time in less than one week a new state fish record has been broken on the southern Oklahoma reservoir; this time for smallmouth bass. On March 22, Aaron Fridrich caught a new state record small- mouth bass weighing a whop- ping seven pounds, 12 ounces. Fridrich's record catch follows on the heels of a new state record blue catfish weighing 87-pounds, 4-ounces caught six days earlier at Texoma by Rusty Keeton of Ardmore. Fridrich, of Prague, was fishing in preparation for an upcoming bass tournament when he tied on a crankbait in the portion of the lake south of Kingston. "Smallmouth bass are native only to the Ozark and Ouchita rivers and streams in eastern Oklahoma," said Kim Erickson, fisheries chief for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Con- servation. "This newest record is a testament to the success of our smallmouth bass stocking program which uses lake-strain smallmouth bass to establish reproducing populations in lakes having no native smallmouth bass." Erickson added that anglers also have good opportunities to hook a smallmouth bass at Skiatook, Eufaula, Murray and Lawtonka lakes. Here's an "egg-citing" puzzle for you!
