Luke is keeping things local this week. Looking for a red hot fishing spot to catch easy limits of white bass (sandbass) with some big hybrid stripers mixed in? Look no farther than COOPER LAKE!  Luke fished with veteran guide Tony Parker (903-348-1619) earlier this week with friend Deryl Markgraf. In less than a couple hours enough fish for a mega fish fry were landed as well as a few hybrids to frill on the half shell. If you are looking for a close to home spot to catch the makings of your own fish fry, Cooper Lake should fill the fill nicely!
