    I got to give a shout out to Lifes2Short. Fished all day in the wind. Nothing to get excited about as far as catching fish. I had caught six Spots, and LM, and even though a couple were close, none measured. Water somewhat stained. Less as you went west and north of CC bridge at Greenfield. I seen water temps from 53.0 to late on the day in the back of a cove I seen 58.3 . Anyway, I had about 30 mins until quitting time. Took a break and looked at my phone. I seen Lifes2Shorts post. Just had not considered a spinner bait today? But I knew I had one tied on in the rod box and thought what the heck. So with 30 mins to go. 45 mins later I had caught a 13 inch spot, a 14 & 17 LM. None of them were in more than a couple feet of water when they bit.  Thanks for sharing... Not to exciting for most people, but it made me smile.

    Minnows , Minnows , Minnows , Minnows , Minnows , -- - EVERY THING in the lake likes minnows... a small split shot about 6-8 inches above a # 1 or 2 hook and the little ones will be "hooked" on fishing for life...

    They are moving into the river channels and transitioning out to deeper water.  Found some today around hawker point area.  Suspended 10-20 ft deep in 30-40 ft of water.  Caught them on size 7 flicker shads. Had to cover a lot of water to get a 3 man limit.

    Here's a 10 minute video of my dog with me fishing in the background...  I was slaying the whites and thought the next best thing to catching fish is watching somebody else catch em!

    crappie-hunter reacted to Phil Lilley in April 21st walleye   
    I turkey hunted until 1 then hit the lake. It was the best day of walleye fishing ive ever had on stockton. Caught 20-25 in 3 hours. All looked like spawned out females,  of the 4 i kept they were all females. I didnt catch a walleye under 17in with the biggest around 7 or 8 lbs 25"+ getting off right as i tried to net her. I knew she was about to get off so i dove over the bow to try and scoop her out,  in the process gouging out a chunk of skin from a tie off cleat. All were caught 15-18 fow on yum worms with a silver spinner rig. One of the bigger eyes had about a 7" shad down her throat.

    We fished the lower end of the lake at greenfield and the action was really slow as well. Caught crappie 4 ft deep in 8 ft of water around structure, caught some 20 ft down in 25 fit of water, caught some 2-4 ft down right against the bank when it got dark. The bite was not nearly as aggressive as it usually is this time of year.  Water temps were around 56-59 degrees. Ended up with 16 keepers.

    Decided that enough was enough and tried to find them shallow yesterday.  Started by putting in at the sons creek access. The lake is high enough that you can’t see any stumps, but they are still there!  Hit a couple of my favorite spots but caught 0 crappie. We did catch some nice keeper largemouths and a few whites, but we were after some crappie.
    Made the decision to load the boat up and go launch at CC.  Tried fishing out of the wind and wasn’t catching anything.  Went the north end of a cove where the wind was really beating us up, and we managed to find some crappie up in the brush. Ended up with 9 (3 females), all caught from the same place, all were keepers. Found water that was 54 to 59 degrees in the coves, and there had to be more crappie around, but the wind made it impossible to stay on them. Bite was really light on minnows. Threw all sorts of jigs but caught nothing on them.
    if Mother Nature would ever straighten out, the spawn just might kick off, but it’s probably still a couple weeks out.

    crappie-hunter reacted to BilletHead in Iosr fishing tackle at old state park   
    Have you all got Andrews replacement tackle sent off? The BilletHead got a box of goodies in the mail this morning. Post office says it should reach him tomorrow. I was bad in the past about finding bargains. mark downs, clearance racks, sales and worst of all if I had something I liked I would get another just in case . I am glad now as the extras will be passed along to someone that needs them. In the bottom of this box is a plano box with probably 500 assorted crappie tube bodies all separated. That should keep him busy for awhile.  Good fishing to you young man,
     Mr. and Mrs. BilletHead

    crappie-hunter reacted to Walleyedmike in Stockton May 6 & 7   
    For my wife and I, heading to Stockton Lake and spending a little time on the water is an opportunity for much needed rest and relaxation. I sometimes catch a hard time from other walleye fishing buddies about how late we often get out on the lake, sometimes not until noon. This weekend we decided to hit it a little earlier. So, Saturday morning we rolled out of bed at the crack of nine and after scouting ramps hit the water by 11:30. We put in at State Park. Fortunately, Gary Stanton and lmt out had shared some general information about the current bite, which proved invaluable. Gary told me he was having luck on main lake points, and lmt out told me if I was going to try bottom bouncing that I'd have to fish deeper than 20' or the green moss would foul my spinners. Prior to talking with Gary, I was planning on fishing my favorite spring cove but decided to hit a favorite main lake point first. I bottom bounced that point at 24' and came up empty. There were some guys bass fishing on the south side of the point and I trolled on around behind them and decided to hit a secondary point on south of them. When hit the point, boom...had a nice double. Turned around and hit it again and picked up another keeper. Fast forward to 2:30 PM and we finished with another double on the same point, which made nine keepers and a short in three hours. We headed in to clean fish and then went to a fish fry at Gary Stanton's house. A good time was had by all.
    Sunday the 7th, we went crazy and were on the water by 10:00. Picked up four keepers and three shorts and headed in at 4:30. Had lunch with lmt out and his wife at State Park Marina and really had a nice visit. When we left my wife commented on how many nice people we have met over the years through fishing forums. Hope to meet many more.
    So, to sum it up, we both limited on May 6th bottom bouncing spinners and slow death rigs in 24-30' of water on a secondary point. On May 7th we had four keepers and three shorts using the same techniques in the same depths on a secondary point. Biggest walleye each day was 18". Typically, I wouldn't be fishing that deep this time of year. So, Thanks to Gary and lmt out for sharing information! We had a great weekend, can't wait for the next one!

    Still fishing in 20ft of water? We have been catching our fill of crappie lately, now it's time to try and figure walleye out I guess!
    headed to the lake in the morning to do just that...

    I'm sure you will find a few up on the banks, but after this rain, they will probably be suspended farther out. Fishing was great a couple weeks ago, we should be on the tail end of the spawn now. Chunk rock banks have been more productive than pea gravel for me.
    good luck

    Also went out with the wife today. Left the state park and fished toward cedar ridge. We ended up with a total of 20 walleye, only 8 were keepers. Caught a lot of 12 to 13 in fish. Largest was 21, all on bottom bouncers anywhere from 16 to 23 ft.
