  1. I usually start on main lake points and if not there then move to secondary points. State park area, mutton creek area are 2 of my favorites this time of year. A-rigs my go to and if not working then jigs and jerk baits.

    Turnover

    We were up sons creek and big sac last Thursday and the water looked like tea in most places. Not muddy just a brown tint to the water.

    Water Temp?

    Was 80-82 in little sac arm Thursday evening. Bass fishing was really slow.
  4. Just drove up to Stockton to look around. Turkey and maize were frozen from the bridges as far out as I could see. Open water on little sac and big sac as far as I could see in either direction from mile long bridge. At state park old ramp was open water and at marina ramp there was open water. Didn’t go to Crabtree but would guess it is open water there also. Saw 1 boat on water.
  5. According to the water patrol site the tournament is next Saturday out of mutton creek 7 - 3:30
  6. We fished Friday till about 3:00 and managed a few but no keepers. Most came on worm or jig and about 15 to 20' deep. We tried it all - from 2' to 30' deep, points to back of coves, top waters, buzz baits, crank baits, worms, jigs, creature baits, A-rigs. Fished the little sac arm from high point to up past state park and tried brush piles, flats, bluffs, timber, points. I have no idea right now how to find keepers or what to throw.

    Culling

    Here is about the clearest explanation about culling I could find. This was written by a Missouri fishery biologist. Keep in mind the following: the no culling rule is in effect only during July and august, and the state wide daily limit is 6 bass but most bass tournaments that weigh fish have a 5 or less bass limit. Google. WWW mobass.com/no cull rule to read this article
  8. Hammer, I think my grandson and I were putting in at same time at Mutton. We had the opposte day you had as we had 15 keepers and probably caught 35 or so. 1 on a jig, 2 on a jerk bait and all the rest on A-Rig and spy bait. All our fish came off gravel points and most were in 5-10 ft range. Had no luck fishing big rock or bluffs and spent all our time in Suns creek and the chicken rock area. Had a couple of 18", several 16", rest 15" or so. Bite got tougher in the afternoon but still able to catch several until we had to leave about 3:30. My shoulder is sore today from heaving that big A-Rig all day but worth it I guess. Hope this helps you and others with some ideas to try.
  9. When you come out of the cove where the masters ramp is be careful about cutting thru between the island and the shore on your right as it will be shallow in spots with the lake down 4'. If you go up in maize creek stay to the left and out a 100' or so from the tree line. DO Not Run UP THE RIGHT SIDE OF MAIZE. A few shallow gravel points on main lake that are pretty easy to spot.
  10. Rod and reel record is 5 lbs 6 oz and was caught on Table Rock in 2002.
  11. We were bass fishing up Sons creek yesterday and saw people catching crappie out deeper and right on the bank so they seemed to be all over. Most were fishing shallow with tubes and jigs under a float set 2 or 3 ft deep. We caught 3 big crappie on large spinnerbaits so go figure. Bass fishing was good in the afternoon and had 7 or 8 keepers all on spinnerbaits.
  12. when Stockton was built northern pike and muskies were stocked and for several years we were catching them frequently while bass fishing. We caught northern up to 8-10 lbs and muskies up to about 15 lbs. they loved buzz baits and spinner baits and was a vicious strike when they hit. I don't remember what year it was but a virus of some kind got started and within a year they were all gone. Would like to see muskies put back in as it can be a thrill when ones hits your bass plug and with all the shad in Stockton there is plenty for them to eat.
  13. Launched at old state park about 9 and water color in that area still stained. Fished up toward little sac and no luck. Moved to north side near price branch and found clearer water. Water temps ranged from 41 to 45. Fished till 3 and ended up catching only 3 bass but good size, a 3#, a 3 1/2#, and a 4 1/2. One came on A-rig, 2 on jerk bait and all came out of 10-20 fow. Tried jig, crank bait, Ned rig, and spoon and fished as deep as 40' but no luck on any of those. Tough day but at least had nice weather.

    Frozen?

    Water temp is 40 according to Corp of engineer site so shouldn't be any ice. Lake is still 12' high so some ramps may still be a problem to launch from.
  15. If boat is not powered by oars or paddles it must have numbers. If you registered boat the numbers should be on your registration paperwork.
