    Tough Day in the Wind

    No eggs iin either and I only remember looking at one belly...no shad....I figured it was hungry and that's why it went after my crank! Without eggs, I'm not smart enough to tell the difference between a male and female walleye.

    Tough Day in the Wind

    Had to work hard in the yak, but well worth it! Winds were 10 to 15 mph out of the NE. Started at Kauffman, moved to Turkey Creek, and finished at Maze Creek. There are so many good put-in locations for kayaks on Stockton! Pulled cranks for most of the day. Went home with 9 crappie and two walleye. Expected to find crappie in the shallows...that wasn't happening.

    Single Walleye

    I put in between the 160 bridge and where Turnback and Big Sac join together. Google maps identifies the road number as 380. If you fish from a kayak, its a very good place to launch from....you can drive right to the water.

    Single Walleye

    Was fortunate enough to be on the water yesterday afternoon. A bit breezy and chilly but still fun! Brought home a 20+ inch walleye for dinner. Pulling cranks at Turnback area. Water temp had dropped to 48 F (was 54 last weekend). The shad balls were nowhere to be found! Caught 3 largemouth...17,16, and 13 inches...they are home safe and sound for someone else to catch.

    3/2 at Turnback

    54 degrees on the water temperature and pulling 100 series Bandits. The area of the river channel that I was in was between 7 to 10 feet. Just for your information, I went to Aldrich area yesterday and water temp was 53 F....it was quite stained! Moved up to Price branch where the water was clear, but water temp was 46F. Didn't do well at either place! The water at Turnback was not too stained and not too clear...just right in my opinion.

    3/2 at Turnback

    Put in at 2 pm on Friday around the Turnback area. Brought home a couple of crappie and four whites. Water temperature was 54 F. Spent the entire time pulling cranks. Pitching jigs on a kayak in the wind can be a bit difficult! Also caught four good largemouth ( three of legal size) and a big drum. Was pretty excited to catch my personal best crappie on Stockton...it was 14.5 inches long. Looking forward to things heating up this spring!

    3/2 at Turnback

    No Mike, I put in just southwest of where the Big Sac and Turnback come together...google maps calls it farm road 380. Its a great place to access Turnback with a kayak.

  9. Fished the Turnback area.  Water temperature was 54 F.  Took home 4 whites and 2 crappie.  Spent the entire time pulling crankbaits.  Too windy in kayak to throw jigs.  Also caught four good largemouth...3 were of legal size...and a drum to boot!  One of the crappie was 14.5 inches long!  That's probably my largest crappie on Stockton.  I was happy to see quite a few shad balls on the graph.

    Laying Down Crappie Beds

    Got a great workout today tugging cedar brush around and sinking at future crappie hotels...hopefully! Talked to the Corp. of Engineers for advise. I was pleased to find out that they encourage the placement of habitat. Looking forward to building many more in the future!
  13. Headed for State Park Marina in morning and was fortunate to notice two beautiful bald eagles sitting side by side on a log in Maze Creek! I sure do wish that there was a place to pull over and grab a picture. The early morning sun just seemed to make these two birds glow! Fishing at the marina was not how I dreamed it up so I departed to ramp just north of 215 bridge. Picked up just one largemouth pulling a crankbait. Surface water temp was 39 F. Talked to a lot of people on Saturday that struggled to find fish! Would like to hear from someone that had better luck than I and tell me where the fish were hiding!
