    Merry Christmas All!
  2. Tough Crappie Wednesday

    Thanks for the updates guys! I work so darned much that it's rare for me to get anywhere near enough me time in the outdoors. It's even rarer that I fish this time of year since what little time I do get, I normally spend bowhunting. Darned if my son and I aren't bringing the G3 out this Saturday to throw some tackle at the Stockton walleye and crappie. I was realizing to my wife that this will be the first time I've ever been on a lake this time of year without it being on the ice fishing for walleye, crappie, perch and pike on Devils Lake, N.D. and Twin Lakes Minnesota in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s. Keep it coming...I don't talk a lot on here, but I sure pay attention to what you're saying!
  3. Walleye

    Thanks Oberst, of all the stuff in my boat, a lure retriever is that one thing I don't have in the boat and need to get, especially considering all the rigs I've lost on a couple mid-lake points this summer. I'll search the forum's archives for recommended retrievers.
  4. Walleye

    Thanks, I'll do just that. I picked up some mooneye jigs earlier this week so I'll get some gulp minnows and try them next trip out.
  5. Walleye

    Thanks Dan, a friend I fished KS lakes with years ago and another guy I recently met in BP both commented similarly about snagging bottom - that I should avoid drift "ticking" them off bottom over uneven structure. Both recommended the shiver minnow in particular for jigging thru shad balls for suspended walleyes in deeper water after the lake turns. I was wondering though if anybody's had success with jigging them year-round for eyes. I haven't picked you out yet on the lake, but I watch for your posts so keep em coming.
  6. Walleye

    Wife and I had our best walleye day ever on Stockton last Saturday. Mid-day to early evening, windward side of mid-lake Big Sac flat edges where we couldn't keep the walleye off our BB/spinner rigs with half crawlers. Had a 3 - 4 hour period where we rarely went 10 minutes without a keeper on. All of them on a spot on the spot hump in 15 - 18ft. Previous weekend to last, it was another mid-day spot on the spot day along a flat edge for eyes when I couldn't buy a walleye, between HORDES of bluegills, anywhere else except on that 50 yd spot. It would have been a grand day to take the grandchildren out for endless bluegill action. This year using improved electronics with Lakemaster maps to find those spot-on-the spot locations for eyes that I couldn't get to bite anywhere else. Catching more 21 - 23 inchers this year than I have in past years. Mother nature always giving free lessons... Question for the many I've learned from on this forum: Anybody had success with Jigging Raps and Shiver Minnows on Stockton during any time of year other than when they're down deep in colder periods? Getting off here to hook up the boat and drag wife out on Stockton again today. Hoping for another of those days!

    Sorry I can't help with the hookup. If you're from the local area, Marine Repair Center in Springfield is an authorized service center for Humminbird, Lowrance, MinnKota and Motorguide...with a good reputation for quality work.
  8. walleye 5-24

    Nice...looking forward to gettin on some 'eyes when we hit the State Park campground this Fri. Bringing my neighbor out who I don't think has ever intentionally fished for walleye.
  9. Walleye

    Heading to the lake today - hoping to hit the walleye and crappie hard. I'll scour the B5 - B7 flats (13 - 25 ft) hard for daytime walleye, then to Ruark's for evening walleye and my nighttime crappie spot.
