  1. wish I would have known I would have stopped and said hi. I would have classified the bite on the upper end as a hot bite. I had thought about trying some of the other lakes but couldn't work it in. wife and I have this area on this to explore for retirement in 2 years so we're just checking it out some. He's my elder so I had to let him wear it. Go Huskers! 😄
  2. Spent the week down on loch Lomond in Bella Vista for a quick getaway. Pretty much only fished in the morning and golfing and seeing other sites in the afternoon. I have never fished this lake and spend some time doing some mapping with the Garmin. Started off fishing main lake points and didn't get too much a few here and there. Was trying drop shot, swimbait, crankbaits etc. Finally discovered (slow learner!) That on the upper end of the lake each morning the bass were schooling and chasing shad. Lasted about an hour and a half each day. And then we hammered them. I primarily was using a zar
  3. Funny- I've had the exact same conversation. I love Stockton but it is a non starter in terms of moving to. I figure if I can be within a 30-40 drive to launch, that should be a decent compromise of lake vs City life. That is why Bella Vista and Prairie Creek areas are higher on our list.
  4. Agree. I don't think many people have ever read the water control plan and the fact that River conditions on the other side of the state can dictate Beaver releases more than TRL. White River Water Control Plan http://www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil/pages/docs/White_River_Master_Manual.pdf
  5. I'll be right behind you liphunter, retiring in a little over two years. we have been investigating the general Beaver lake area for relocation as well. We've stayed at a few places near lost bridge village, as well as checking out Rogers area/Bella Vista area. Definitely places to buy on the lake, though not as many available as table Rock. and therefore lakefront will probably be a bit pricier than table Rock as well. Our process right now is doing the trade-off analysis of how close we want to be to the city for the various services and amenities. I'm going to stay in a VRBO in Bella Vis
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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 trai
  15. 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.
