    Olfishhead, You are obviously a person with a great deal of knowledge on this topic. I greatly appreciate you contributing to the post. What is the expected life span of a Crappie in Stockton Lake? 6 Years?? Maybe they could withstand a couple of bad years to reach the 11" or 12" Length limit?? I remember when the Crappie length was 8" on Stockton and the Bass were 11" ????? Somewhere along the way we bumped it up a little?? Walcrabass

    Rootman, I am so glad you sent the picture of the 13" and the 11" Crappie. This shows exactly why I have been asking for a 12" length limit on Stockton for the Crappie. Just LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE in SIZE ? !!? !!!!! 1. Stockton has a good supply of Crappie. Black and White both.................... 2. Stockton has a great supply of Shad.................... 3. Stockton is obviously deep enough to hold these type of fish, even through the worst winters and hottest summers. Fish Biologist please answer me.................. Why don't we have a 12" length limit on the Crappie in Stockton Lake??? You helped us out greatly with the lowered length limit for the Kentucky Bass please help us out with this one too !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Walcrabass
  3. Lifes2short, I see on your posts that you like Fly fishing in Colorado. Have you ever been to Westcliff or Silvercliff? I have fished there a couple of times and it was really good. PM me and I can give you some details. Walcrabass
  4. Dutch, On the trailer.................. I put mine on so that the trailer comes out slightly below the bend of the hook. Then add the trailer hook on top of it and of course something to keep it there. I do not have problems with the trailer hook getting the way of the action even if I am using long tail skirts on the Spinnerbait. The trick I have found is to keep everything slightly below the bend in the main hook. Freefallin, Yep, Red Colorado is a killer........... love it on Chartreuse OR White Baits. Walcrabass
  5. Dutch, Your choice of the Red Head etc. Spinnerbait has got to be a true killer, dip the tip of tails in Red Dye and even better. I don't have any JUST like yours but close. Are the blades a Size 5 and 4? Also for this time of year and in the Spring I use a Chartreuse Head, Chartreuse body, Chartreus Big Colorado, and Red Small Colorado. Then add a Chartreuse/Pepper Split tail trailer ( with the tips dipped in Red Dye ) and of course a Trailer Hook. A great Dirty Water and Cloudy day pattern. I have used this one for over 40 years.

  6. Skeeter, The Oak trees get whacked pretty good when the water stays up too long. They will make good " debris" in the water as they fall apart. Hopefully when they fall over from wind or no living root system to hold them up anymore they will end up in the lake. Nothing better than a laydown with the roots at the bank and the trunk and top in the water........... you get hung up less on those kind !!!!!! Walcrabass
  7. Awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fried Kentuckies. Nothing better.................
  8. Yakattack, I would like to have some email addresses to send in my two cents worth. We have enough problems with public access and don't need to start anymore. I always think of Kansas and what has happened to the ability to float a creek or river...................... disaster................. Walcrabass

    Dutch, Awesome !!!!!!!!! That is 5 that won't turn into 50,000 in 5 years. Good Job !!!!! Walcrabass
  10. Dutch, Must be City Folk........................ want to get it at the counter in the store, take it home, eat it............... no problem-o. Walcrabass
  11. Dutch, Please ice them down, give them to someone else ( neighbor??) and they can clean them at dark. Gotta get them out of the lake............. Walcrabass
  12. Dutch, Very nice job on the Bass for this time of year. Hope the Greenies went back in the lake and the Spots went home with you. Walcrabass
  13. Mhyde, Glad you put some of those Kentuckies in the livewell for your weigh in.......... I know the tournaments are catch and release and I think that is great................... but................ in the case of the Kentuckies I believe they should be allowed to go home with the Angler or be given to others. This would greatly help the awesome Biologist that instituted the 12" rule in his effort to control the Kentuckies in the lake. I am asking all of you tournament guys to ask for this to be instituted in your tournament rules. I hope this can be legally accomplished ................................... Walcrabass P.S. I also hope that the Biologist for Stockton and the Biologist for Table Rock are good buddies. Maybe the Stockton guy can influence him with the same 12" rule for Kentuckies on Table Rock. Actually I would take a 10 or 11" rule as they spawn at such a small size !!!!
  14. J Creek, Yuuuuuuppppp !!!!!!!!!! You are right, it is better now by a long shot. I have often said that if it weren't for foot control trolling motors I seriously do not know if I would Bass fish or not. Some of my Great Grandpa's, Great Aunts, etc were born back in the 1800's, the stories they told were not something to give you desire for those times. Walcrabass
  15. 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
