  1. Mocarp, You are correct.....and so will Largies, Flatheadies, Crappies, White Bassies, and any other fish that swims in the lake and needs food. I honestly cannot believe that the MDC has ignored the fact that the Kentuckies need to have their own regulations in ALL lakes and rivers within our state. Now that it looks like we have the ball rolling.............. I hope they dig deeply into stocking some of the various Largemouth species/Largemouth crosses in our lakes. We have the food, we have the habitat, we just need the genetics to go with it. Please believe me when I say that our waters are not too cold for these other Bass. They are not going to try to swim South to save themselves. Walcrabass
  2. Fishing people, My thanks to everyone that is pulling these Kentuckies out of the lake LEGALLY !!! You have no idea how much you are helping the fishing in Stockton by doing so.......... Walcrabass
  3. Luvn2fish, You are cool, Awesome, and a friend for life.......................... Walcrabass
  4. Jordan Green, If I am thinking of the same bluff.................... good place to catch Smallies............... I used to fish there several years ago. 1/2 Oz Jigs, Green Pumpkin Black/Brown or Brown Jigs with Orange belly, Matching Craws and Craw oil. One of my favorite places for Smallmouth on Stockton. Great big Rocks when the water is down , right? Walcrabass
  5. Dutch, You should be buying Lottery tickets ??!! ?? I honestly cannot tell you as I do not fish Stockton very much anymore. Maybe some of the others on the Forum can help out. In the past I caught several in the Son's Creek arm, especially the bridge area under the highway to Mutton Creek ( around the piers), along the bluff across from Hawker, and in the mouth of Hawker itself around the peninsula that is by the boat ramp. I have however caught them in all parts of the lake. Good luck to you and thanks for wanting to help out. Walcrabass
  6. Brother Fishermen and Women, Thank you for your input. Myself and straw Hat have been giving information in a polite, Scientific, and truthful way on this subject for many years now. I am glad to see that the general "fishing population" is seeing that I was not a lunatic. Missouri has the potential to be a great Bass fishing state again. But with the amount of people fishing today, the fish finders we have, and these little bass in the lake we are fighting a losing battle without removing them. I am also of the opinion that we will need to stock some of the Largemouth species as other states nearby have done. They have had huge results. Just remember, it is all about MONEY and PUBLIC OPINION. If those two items are entered into this problem it can be conquered in nothing flat. For now, do your part by removing them in a legal manner in the lakes that have the special regulations for Kentucky Bass. For the Future, let your voice be heard on Forums like this one and when a Creel Checker or Game Warden comes your way. It is the future of Bass Fishing here in our states and others. The One and Only, Walcrabass
  7. Fisherpeople, Fishing season is upon us and getting better every day. Very heartwarming after enduring another winter. I was looking through the internet last night and found something else that is very heartwarming. An article by Outdoor News on Mar. 17, 2019, concerning the new regulations for Spotted ( Kentucky) Bass in Stockton Lake. It said, Increasing angling opportunity and potentially improving conditions for other sport fish are the Missouri Department of Conservation's goals for Stockton Lake's newest Spotted Bass regulation. This regulation if utilized by the fisherpeople on this lake will definitely make a difference in the future Bass fishing for Stockton. It is " an answer to prayer" to keep Stockton from becoming Table Rock Part 2. If you do not want these Bass for yourself please remove all of them that are legal in length and quantity to give to someone else and do your part to help MDC do theirs. I found very interesting the remark by Ben Parnell, biologist for Stockton Lake, ( you gotta love the truthfulness in his statement), when he said the 15" limit was essentially acting as a CATCH AND RELEASE regulation rather than a minimum length regulation. If you study about these fish in Missouri you will find that nearly "none" of them percentage wise ever reach 15" and probably zero percent of the males. I believe this to be poor farming. Why waste feed on livestock that will never reach a size to take to market? Especially when that feed can be used by other fish who have historically proven to definitely reach market size? Also interesting was that Norfork, Bullshoals, Lake of the Ozarks, and Truman already have special regulations in existence for the Spotted Bass. But then we have good Ole Table Rock. Nationally famous Bass fishing lake. Clear waters. Chock full of Kentucky Bass that will as statistics have proven never reach a harvestable size. I have to ask myself "WHY"? They are literally rampant in the lake. Something definitely needs to be looked into/done about this or in 5 more years it will just be another hole of water with a bunch of little tiny Bass in it. I am going to stop typing now. I just can't do it with my head bowed and my hands folded. That is what I am going to do right now. Concerned for our fishing future, Walcrabass
