  1. On those piles that hold 99% keepers, we need GPS coordinates! 😁
  2. I assume you were around Mutton or farther south? Curious what the water temperatures might be from State Park to the dam.
  3. Definitely the hat! How can a Santa Claus hat be anything but lucky? 😀
  4. Walcrabass: Yes the trifecta means largemouth, smallmouth and kentuckies. Catching kentuckies isn't that rare for me. One's over 15 inches are. What I find interesting is that more and more, I'm pretty sure I'm catching meanmouth on a pretty consistent basis.
  5. This was my first time on Stockton since last July. I had a couple of things going against me. First was a new hat. Wasn't broke in yet. New hats aren't lucky. Second was that the bass were probably mad at me for not fishing Stockton in about 6 months! 😀 Put in at 10:30 am at Orleans Trail and fished till sundown. Water temps hovered around 46 to 47 degrees. I fished between Orleans Trail and State Park Marina. Ended up with 15 bass with 4 keepers. I caught the trifecta. The largest bass was 18 inches. Also had a 17 incher. The other 2 keepers were just over 15 inches. Caught 1 bass on a jerk bait, 4 on the A-rig and everything else on the Ned. Secondary points with a fast drop seemed to be best. I had no idea where I would find them and I spent too much time looking too far back in the bigger creek arms. I found my fish from the main lake to about halfway back. Plus with the lake this low, the fish just aren't where I would normally find them at normal pool. It was a simply gorgeous day on Stockton.

  7. I second what Jmontgo1246 says. Megabass 110 and 110+1 in pro blue. I tried the Rick Clung look-a-likes, but just believed the action was better with a Megabass. When the water temperature gets below 40 I struggle.
  8. If we're fishing for polar bears, I'm going to need a bigger live well! 😀
  9. Dutch: I used to fish Table Rock quite a bit back in the late 90's and early 2000's. Back then I had a PinPoint graph on the bow. Best graph I ever had. Wished they still made them. I could fish suspended fish and do well with a spoon or dropshot. On Table Rock the fish just seem to school more making finding them, and fishing them easier. I am still a strong believer that on Stockton the fish scatter in the summertime and you will find one here, and another one there. No rhyme or reason other than they are cruising looking for shad. On Table Rock they seem to gang up. Anyway, that's my 2 cents. Weird how 2 lakes, close in proximity, both clear, both rocky, but they fish very different. For me anyways.
  10. I beat the heat on Tuesday and still fished. I grabbed my fly rod and waders and went to Bennett Spings. I know it's like shooting fish in a rain barrel, but it was still fun. Standing in waist deep 50 degree water sure makes 93 degree days bearable. And the trout were biting what I was offering.
  11. First trip to Stockton since back in May. Water temps were 89 to 90 around the dam area. 5 to 6 foot clarity. We mainly went down for some boating and swimming but I did take my son and a friend of his out for a couple of hours to see if we could catch something. Jacob and Ray are both in the Navy and came home for a visit. I hit 3 main lake points that I have caught fish off of in the past in the summertime. Only a few bites on each of them. My son Jacob caught 3 total bass and one was a keeper smallmouth. His friend Ray caught 2 short smallmouth. I caught a keeper largemouth, a short smallmouth and two rock bass. Everything caught was on the ned. I tried a texas rigged blue flake power worm but couldn't buy a bite on it. Fishing Stockton in July and August has always bumfuzzled me.
  12. Thank you Dave for the update. You and your wife have been heavy on my mind. Praying that things go well from here on out.
  13. Thanks for the report. Good job. When you say you fished deep water, define deep.
