  1. I've stayed at the VRBO condo link below several times (called Vikery resort). Close to state Park area but has a dock at the condo itself. Really nice corner unit nice and quiet. https://t.vrbo.io/TfLSMFrO10
  2. Don't forget the best part that you experienced/ helped your 86 year old Grandpa catch his personal best walleye. Had a great trip. Stayed at cabins on Stockton lake which met our needs very well.
  3. Ended up going out of state Park this morning. Got there about 6:45 or so this morning. Fished points and channel swings, focused on 15 ft depth - targeting walleye. Used jig & crawler (got three that way - 2 keepers and one short). Also got another short walleye trolling crank. Spread throughout the walleye were 2 nice cats (one channel one flat), couple small Bass and of course, the obligatory drum and bluegill. Off the water by 12:00. Wind was no issue for me, and much welcome given the heat. Will be back next weekend to learn more areas.

    Wind

    Sounds good thanks for the information everybody. I got a couple spots on the sac side that I'll probably hit up at first light and then as Dutch recommended swing over to the state park side as the wind picks up. My boat handles wind fine but I just want to be safe, not knowing the lake. If you're out tomorrow I'll be in a maroon Sylvan deep v. Swing over and say hey!

    Wind

    Thanks for the suggestions. Given wind, I think I'll see if any of them Bass, walleye and crappie are present in the mutton areas. Looking forward to learning new areas!

    Wind

    Thanks for the feedback. May be better to play safer and stay South this time. Will have to scout new areas!

    Wind

    Thanks for the info. Just wasn't sure if there were any areas of the lake prone to really big rollers with ssw wind in the low 20's, that I should avoid. I'll just stay aware! Thanks again!

    Wind

    Heading down for a day trip Monday from kc. Only been to Stockton one other time. I see forecast for wind is about 10mph, gusting to low 20's. SSW direction. Was just curious with a wind forecast like that are there any particular areas of the lake I should avoid? I was planning on fishing essentially North half of the lake from State Park up to the dam. I have a 17 foot deep v aluminum. not too worried about it but just want to take precautions not knowing the lake as I've heard they can get some big waves. Was planning on putting in at Crabtree but thinking perhaps Orleans trail or something on the west side might be better as if it gets too Windy, I could cut over to the west side and fish those areas.
  10. Agree 100% - even though I could have used all this great advice a week ago this was my view Weds morning as I was the only one out there at that time.
  11. Like you, I'm still learning how to fish these Ozark lakes. Sounds like you have had about the same experience I had this week. Threw everything at them with little success. I guess I need to buy more arsenal! I tried but to fish unless I saw fish on finder but even then, they weren't biting. Am thinking I might have been seeing White's but who knows. I need to keep practicing to learn how to fish deep water better. Attached is a screenshot of non cooperating fish!
  12. I haven't. Son did a little bit, but not enough to say anything about it positive or negative. Will probably give that a shot in the morning.
  13. Son and I been fishing out of state Park Marina area last several days. As you might expect, been slow. Going out about 5:15 am till about 9-10 ish. Fish must be still scattered as we've searched with electronics and see isolated fish that don't see to interested in cooperating! Have tried drop shot, jigging spoons for the deeper areas. The only place we saw a small school of fish I managed to get a decent white, but only one (on a white/pink jigging spoon). Worked main lake points and long run outs with no luck. The only semi pattern we out together on one morning was we trolled crawdad color cranks along the banks near the Long points and managed to get 4 smalls and one lm. Caught a couple of small largemouth beating the bank in back of coves. That's about it. More of a negative report but as I said in title, sure beats working! 2 more mornings so will update if anything changes!
  14. Good Intel. Thank you. I thought I'd map a zone that covers no more than 30 minutes to lake and about 15 to towns. Saw some nice new construction near pea ridge golf course. Might be an option. Wasn't sure about air traffic noise from the Rodgers executive airport with possibly being in flight path. Will try to talk to people in that area. Sorry to make a non fishing thread but fishing is the ultimate root of my move! Thanks again. Will check out some of the areas you mentioned
  15. Thanks. Will begin to link up with realtor for those kind of specifics. Would like to be within 30 minutes to boat so will have to do some test drives!
