  1. TinBoats Tourney Results

    Congrats on your win! What was the top 3 weights??
  2. Hi guys

    WHAT TOURNAMENT ARE YOU FISHING ???
  3. Local fishing clubs

    STOCKTON FRIDAY NIGHTERS IS ONE. I GUESS YOU COULD CONSIDEER IT A "CLUB" SINCE YOU DO PAY A MEMBERSHIP FEE. I'M PRETTY SURE ITS THE BIGGEST TOURNAMENT THAT FISHES ONLY STOCKTON. TOWARD THE END OF THE SEASON THEY WERE GETTING ALMOST 60 TEAMS AND I THINK 49 OUT OF 51 TEAMS THAT WERE ELIGLIBLE FISHED THE END OF YEAR CHAMPIONSHIP. WWW.STOCKTONFRIDAYNIGHTERS.COM THERE ARE A FEW OTHER CLUBS THAT DO FISH STOCKTON THAT ARE "CLOSED" TOURNAMENTS, BUT SOME DO NOT PULL PERMITS (SO U CANT LOOK THEM UP ON THE HP REGATTA LISTINGS) SO YOU ETIHER HAVE TO KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS A MEMBER TO GET AN INVITE OR FISH ONE OF THIER OPEN EVENTS. BEST BET IS TO LOOK A THE PEG BOARDS AT THE BAIT SHOPS/ GAS STATIONS AROUND THE LAKE OR THE PEG BOARDS AT SPORTSMANS AND FIN & FEATHER IS SPRINGFIELD.
  4. BIZARRE FOODS

    THEY NEVER WEIGHTED THE FISH BUT I'M GUESSING IT WAS BALLPARK 24" AND 10-12 POUNDS
  5. BIZARRE FOODS

    DON'T KNOW IF ANY OF YOU WATCH THE FOOD NETWORK, BUT THERE IS A SHOW CALLED BIZARRE FOODS IN WHICH THE HOST TRAVELS THE WORLD EATING FOODS/DISHES THAT ARE POPULAR TO THE PLACES HE VISTITS. THE OTHER NIGHT HE TRAVELED FROM MEMPHIS, TN TO NATCHEZ MS BY BOAT DOWN THE MISSISSIPPI. IN ONE OF THE SEGMENTS HE WAS WITH A COMMERICAL FISHERMAN ON THE MISSISSIPPI, THE "FOOD" HE SAMPLED WITH THAT GENTLEMAN WAS THE RIBS FROM A BIGMOUTH BUFFALO. HAS ANYONE ELSE EVER TRIED THESE? WHEN THEY CUT THEM OUT OF THE FISH THEY LOOKED JUST LIKE PORK RIBS. THEY JUST COATED THEM IN BATTER AND FRIED THEM. THEY ALSO TOOK THAT FISH JUST HAPPENED TO BE A FEMALE THAT WAS FULL OF EGGS. THEY COATED THE ROE SACK AND FRIED IT ALSO. JUST CURIOUS IF ANYONE HAS EATEN THE RIBS FROM ONE OF THOSE FISH????

  9. Steady decline of the fish population.

    Does anyone know for sure that the MDC does or doesn't stock any bass in Stockton? Wondering if a new infusion of gentics wouldn't help the lake out.
  10. Steady decline of the fish population.

    This is a very good discussion, and have enjoyed reading it!! Let me throw something else in that hasn't been mentioned yet, "the brush pile program" In the mid 90's the MDC along with the CoE really started to crank up and crank out new habitat structure throughout the lake. Some of this structure is marked but the green signs you see nailed to trees on the bank but many are not physical marked and can only be found by GPS and your electronics. I wonder how placing these structure has truly changed the fish movements and patterns? I often think once a bass finds one of these structures it will stay until it has to or is forced to leave. i think before this that the fish were force to move a bit more and there for more visible on electronics? also take in account all the structure's that have been sunk by citizens. just thought don't know if its relevant but just a thought.
  11. Steady decline of the fish population.

    this link might help.... this link might helpthis link mihghttps://fishing.mdc.mo.gov/reports/stockton-lake did some digging and this being an odd # year the survey should take place on the little sac arm of the lake (east side or state park side) and next year being an even # year it will take place on the Big sac arm ( old state/Hawker side) you would have to call the Number that's on the page of the link I posted to get more details on who and how the biologist go about doing the shocking surveys.
  12. Steady decline of the fish population.

    Call one of the MDC office's for one of the counties that the lake is in (POLK, DADE, CEDAR) they can get you that info.
  13. The old blind sow sometimes finds acorns

    Glad you found a limit!!
  14. Keepers still missing

    I do agree with you on this, we have not had a GOOD shad kill for a couple of years. need a good freeze this winter.
  15. Keepers still missing

    2017 STOCKTON LAKE FISHING PROSPECT REPORT "Largemouth bass are the most numerous black bass species in Stockton Lake, especially in the upper portions of the lake. Spotted bass and smallmouth bass are present throughout the lake, but make up larger percentages of the population in the lower portion of the lake. Sampling is conducted on each of the major lake arms on alternate years. In 2016, largemouth bass catch rates on the Big Sac Arm were improved from 2012 and suggest good recruitment the last few years. The data revealed a very high number largemouth bass in the 13-14.5 inch range. This is consistent with recent reports from anglers, catching an overabundance of sublegal fish. The good news is that these fish should provide anglers with more keeper fish in the next couple of years. Catch rates from 2015 on the Little Sac Arm were below the long-term average, in fact the lowest since 2007. However, this could be partially attributed to less than optimal sampling conditions at the time. Fortunately, successive strong year classes should continue to produce quality fishing for anglers." just spit balling not trying to start a conspiracy here, but when I read this I wonder if the 'overabundance of sublegal fish" could contribute to the growth of the class stunting out? If there were an overabundance of short fish in the big sac arm could that lead to a growth issue? I don't believe there is shortage of food (shad), but TOO MANY or "over abundance could lead to an issue with that class of fish maturing? this also reads that in the Little Sac arm in 2015 catch rates were "below the long term average, in fact the lowest since 2007" could it be that the floods the last 2 years just have not produced good spawns and have actually hurt the fish more than they have helped? I'm no biologist but I just wonder if you read between the lines in this report that maybe the lake is just on a down and we all just shouldn't be surprised by the lack of keepers this year ...anyone else have any thoughts??????
