  1. Crappie fishing

    Went yesterday too, the bite was OFF. 10 keepers, really light bite, shad back in channel and bottom hugging. Guy in a kayak had picked up 7 illegal bass he said, but they're a non targeted species for me. I think COE is letting it out faster than it comes in, lake still 4 foot low. MONDAY if I can get KP.

  2. Kupla Limits

    White 1/8 ounce rockport rattlers on an eleven foot B and M ultra light w/ reel seat at bottom like a flyrod. I hold that in my left hand, although I'm right handed. Ol Todd Huckabee technique, left hand has better reflexes/sensitivity than power hand according to Todd. The other rod is Outlaw 10 foot crappie/walleye rod which is sold/marketed by J R Oldham at the Cabins on Stockton Lake. It's a much stouter rod (more backbone). I believe Everharts also sells them, possibly other places. I have one gold and one chrome jig head on that one, both 1/8 ounce. I tie Huckabee loop knots about 15-18 inches apart, which allows the jig to always lay level because of the loop knot. The second rod is in a bee line rod hold set about a foot over the water, and I attempt to keep my line as vertical as possibly with just a little forward thrust. I avoid brush piles w/ this 2 jig setup, and will use it thru pre spawn. I also use the Outlaw pole for pulling cranks, won't rip it out of a crappie mouth but has enough backbone to set the hook on a walleye. Hope you can envision all this. OGHFM
  3. Kupla Limits

    of crappie and probably a limit of whites (all released). Both species really nice sized, probably only released 10 illegal crappie. Pretty cold and mistly at 9:40 when we started, gusty later. Bluegrass jokers early, black and pink beaver bottoms when sun came out. Found baitfish near channel break, drop to bottom, up 2 cranks, light thump from crappie, inhale from whites. Looking wet next week.
  4. Trolling rod holders

    I haven't seen anyone, don't think there are any blues or whites, but some folks might argue that. There are plenty of flats to troll, with occasional MDC or private brushpile. If theres a bump in the road I'll find it.
  5. Trolling rod holders

    I have 3 of the driftmaster Jr.s that I won't use again. They all 3 have the vertical pole holders with them which make it handy going down the lake, less chance of the little ones getting into them or stepping on the rods. You can install them and try them out if you wish. Just pm me, come to Springfield pretty regular, but my son lives there and could send them w/ him.
  6. Trolling rod holders

    What will you be fishing for? I fish for walleye and crappie and have used driftmasters and bee line. I like being able to adjust the distance my rod tip rides above the water w/ the bee line. I have an attachment on my driftmaster jr. that allows me to stow the rod vertically when travelling down the lake. Couldn't recommend either if you are drifting for big cats, but they meet my needs.
  7. Any Prop Shops Near Stockton Lake?

    Don't think they MAKE anything,, but the original prop off my Mercury 60 4 stroke which came on a Tracker Super Guide was stamped BPS , could mean burp puke and sputter but kinda think it was produced for them.. It was anemic., especially when compared to Merc's Spitfire 4 blade.

    You take a ribbing good JC. The dam do got some BIG rocks. We'll have to wet a hook sometime and you can see how quickly the spitfire planes out.
  9. Any Prop Shops Near Stockton Lake?

    Hmmmm. Does your motor have a 3 or 4 bladed prop? My 60 had 3 bladed anemic Bass Pro Shop special on it, wouldn't pull a sick 90 yo woman off a pot. Mercury makes a 4 bladed Spitfire prop. They make claims like on plane in 4 seconds, 1 or 2 mph faster, won't blow out on steep turns. Bought one. BELIEVE THEM. Best $120 I've spent on that boat, cept for the really cushy seat I bought for the wife that puts her right to sleep. Silence is golden. Regards to the better half. Chuckling old gray haired fat man
  10. walleye boated

    But not in mine. Took a friend out strolling today in the super guide after having the front carpet replaced w/ marine vinyl. We caught one limit of crappie after sorting thru about 50 for illegals. 12 fow, mostly bluegrass jokers were their favorites, water temp was 38, tempted to go swimming but couldn't get my buddy to go first. After cleaning what I felt was a fair score between fronts we went back down to the ramp and a neighbor had just pulled out. He had 12 12 inch plus crappie and 3 kicker walleye, claimed he caught them in 23 fow around bait balls. Me thinks he trapped them. Never have liked that guy (read jealous). Hope his legs grow together. Do like the vinyl. Still fuming over the walleye. Jealous old gray haired fat man
  11. Strolled Again

    I know some folks that are considering one of those Heritages. Love the baby moons on the trailer. I was born and raised in El Do until the Army took me away for 24 years. Got a cabin on Sons Creek now but live in Joplin. Sweet luck w/ your new ride.
  12. Strolled Again

    Today from noon till 2, eight crappie , half keepers and half short, all released. Had best luck in 13-15 fow, the wind was sporting. Took the ol Arkansas Traveler out for the first time in 3 years. She's a 1955 model and has been with the family since 59. Removed the center seat about 8 years ago and installed a flat Cypress wood floor. Have Minn Kota maximizer hand operated tm's on bow and stern, just reversed the head on the front one. I had forgot how easy boat control is that way. Plan on doing a little training with the grand kids this spring and hope to let them solo the coves up Sons creek in good weather, we all started somewhere. If I pass you on the lake in this ol boat, you must be tied to something. Ol gray haired fat man
  13. 7 keeper specks up to 13 inches, probably a dozen shorties, .3 mph, 10-14 fow, 10 ft deep, dip of snuff in right side of mouth, typical chiseled profile and self assured grin on face. Rockport rattlers 15 inches apart, Todd Huckabee loop knots, Joker blue/green w/ chartreuse niblets, south of the dam. Schooled partner to make up for cuz schooling me on Truman last summer. Nuff said. Olf gray haired fat man
  14. What is this?

    Those are hillside moody's. Used to be very common in Cedar County. They are a small fur bearing animal that (obviously) live on hillsides. They don't hibernate. When they are caught away from their burrows they will scamper UPHILL. At the top of the hill they will curl up and begin rolling DOWNHILL..They get to rolling faster and faster and finally roll so fast they disappear through their a---ole. Hill side moody.
