  1. Good luck on Sunday. Looks like the forecast says it will be windy. That's something Stockton never sees!😄
  2. Dutch, I never tried a spinner bait. Thought about it, but with little wind, didn't think it would work.
  3. What a beautiful day to be on the water. I figured the water temps would be in the mid-50's, and they were. 54 to 56 around Orleans Trail. Mainly fished a rock crawler and wiggle wart. Also caught some on the ned. Tried a jerkbait, but not too much. Ended up catching 16 bass and 1 walleye. 6 of the bass were keepers. Two of them went 17 1/2, a 17 incher, a 16 incher and two 15 1/2 inchers. I thought rock snot would be a problem but only far back in the coves.
  4. I know for a fact that the weather we are having here in Missouri was due to a mistake at the National Weather Service. They had a new hire that thought MO stood for Minnesota. So they gave us their forecast. Our dumb luck because the one time in history the National Weather Service got a forecast right it gave us Minnesota weather!😀
  5. Has anybody been around the lake? Is it completely frozen over or is there still open water in places?
  6. I remember going to Pomme several years ago and the temperature was in the mid 20's when we launched. We were the first ones to launch. A truck & boat came in right behind us and when he backed down, the water from when I had pulled out had frozen. I'm sure a certain part of his anatomy was puckering big-time. Luckily, he was able to get the boat in the water without any damage. All that said to say I want 32 degrees or above and hopefully sun on the ramp to make sure I don't go sliding down the ramp.
  7. With the weather now, and the forecast for at least the next week, you're going to need an ice breaker to get to your favorite spots.
  8. First time on Stockton in a LONG time. Got on the water around 9:30 am and got off at 3:00 pm. Fished between Orleans Trail and Hawker. Only caught 5 but 3 of them were keepers. Biggest went 18 inches. 2 came on the a-rig, 2 on a jerkbait, and one on the ned. Water temps were 46 to 47 degrees. I'm sure that cold front that went thru a couple of days ago didn't help. Really not sure where the fish are hanging out. I mainly fished main lake and secondary points.
  9. I haven't been on the site in a week or so. I'm in San Diego welcoming a new grandson. Saw this thread about "winter safety" so I thought I'd give it a look. A few posts about safety, but 5 pages of posts about monkeys, dolls, and squirrels. Fishing must be really bad right now!😁
  10. Walcrabass will be proud of you!😀
  11. I need to get down to Stockton soon. The bass should be shallow.
  12. I got to fish several times in Montana primarily on Belt Creek east of Great Falls. I struggled the first couple of trips out, but finally figured something out after the weather changed. I had been throwing hoppers, ants and beetles and getting quite a few swirls, but few hookups. We made a side trip up to Eureka Montana to attend a wedding and I got a couple of hours on the Tobacco River. I caught 3 kokanee salmon. Back to Great Falls and on Labor Day the weather changed. It snowed in the higher elevations. After that I switched to a purple haze. It was game on after that. Nothing big,
  13. Put in at Long Shoals about 9:00 am. Water temps were 57 to 58 to start the day and when we got off the water at 5:00 pm they were running 64 to 65 in the back ends of the big coves. Spent the day looking for crappie. Had one in the first hour, and only 4 in the first 4 hours. Around 2:00 pm it started changing. As the afternoon wore on the crappie fishing got better and better. We started catching them shallow. We hit one stretch of bank probably 25 feet long where we caught 15 to 20. I don't fish Truman a lot, but the size of the fish was really impressive. Nothing under 10 inches a
  14. Really pretty clear. 4 feet or better.
