  1. Sounds like some good eating! Glad you got to enjoy your catch
  2. Put in at RB, went up to sons creek targeting crappie. Tried minnows and Bobby garlands with a few bites and small crappie. As just a thought put on power bait minnows in black shad color and the bite picked way up. Ended up catching about 25 and 14 keepers. Missed also about same amount . Caught them in 13 To 22 foot of water but you had to fish right next to the standing dead trees or stobbs as close as you could. More than about 6 inches from it and no bites. Bite was very soft , but the power minnows was the ticket today. Water temp was about 78, water clear. Guess the black minnows matched all the shad in the area. Did not slay them but had a great day on the lake. Looking forward to better days ahead. Hope others had a good day!
  3. You are da man lmtout! I never cease to be impressed as to how you can find them so consistently. I have tried bb and cannot get a sniff. After a few hours of trying I just give up in despair 😩. Not sure what I am doing wrong , but congrats again on a successful trip!
  4. Did you use minnows or on jigs, Bobby garlands etc ?
  5. Thanks for the ramp pics and update. Been about a month since had the boat out, am afraid it sitting in my yard so long it is going to rust! Be heading up there next week to give the fishing a try.
  6. Great job finding them! How is the water level up there now ?
  7. Should have went with my gut and stayed home, skunked fishing at night under a light. Drew in a lot of bait fish but no bites. I am done with Stockton till the water comes down, hope others had better luck than us
  8. Is anyone doing any good at all on Stockton? Debating about going up this evening, but not sure if is worth the gas expense and sitting in the heat to try and catch anything? Was thinking about fishing till after dark with a light. Any information greatly appreciated!

    Sounds like things are very tough bite wise on the lake. How was the water clarity on the lake with all the rain? Was hoping to try to go up this weekend, but reading as to where you are having a hard time finding them makes me wonder if it is worth the trip! Still a bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work!
  10. Has anyone been doing any night fishing with lights and doing any good while doing it? Was thinking about trying this weekend but wanted to see if anyone had been trying it, thx
  11. Got back today from trip to table rock, stayed at big M on the white river arm of the lake. With Stockton as it is, wanted to try another lake. Wish I could say we slayed them, but no such luck. Lake there is just beautiful, water clear and temps were about 78. Caught bass on cranks and soft plastics in 25 ft of water. Saturday there were way to many pleasure hosts on water during most of the day to fish unless you like bobbing like a cork all day. Fishing that part of lake is so very different from Stockton. No luck with walleyes but to tell the truth did not know where to begin to find them. Had a great trip with my uncle though and memories were made. It’s a great plane to go and am sure a good place to fish, there was also 2 tournaments this weekend do pressure on fish was high. Hope others had a great weekend out to, weather was just perfect
  12. Will do, am hoping for a good dry trip!
  13. Thanks for the information, going to try and get up there next weekend. Going to try and find some walleye on the white river arm of table rock this weekend, staying at big M, hopefully will not get rained out, according to the conservation report, walleye should be a plenty up the white river area, we shall see, thanks again your ability to continuously find walleye is just amazing to me, that is my goal this year to figure them out or go nuts trying πŸ˜‚
  14. How was the water clarity at RB? I was hesitant to go to Stockton this weekend, have an uncle in wanting to go fishing, so made plans to go to table rock with him for the weekend. Is there still a lot of junk in the water?
