    Skeeter ZX190 got a reaction from mrgungho for a article, December 12 bass report   
    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.

    Took my friend Bobby fishing today.  We talked about postponing the trip until Friday because we thought the fishing would be tough. A northwest wind; a couple of days after a pretty strong cold front, clear skies, etc.  On the way down around ElDorado Springs, we saw several herds of cows all lying down.  Not good signs.  By the time we got close to Stockton, the cows we were seeing were standing up.  So who knows.  
    We put in at Orleans Trail around 9:00 a.m. and started there.  I was throwing a jerkbait and Bobby was throwing a green pumpkin rock crawler.  Nothing for quite awhile.  I switched to an alabama rig and still nothing.  Was working our way toward the main lake just east of the buoy line and I switched to a rock crawler in red craw.  Caught 2 fish on back to back casts.  A few cast later I caught another one.  Continued for a little while longer but to no avail.  Crossed to the north side and pulled out the ned.  Caught a few out in 8 to 14 feet of water.  Headed toward the dam and worked that big cove just north of the quarry.  It was game on.  We doubled up twice and all 4 fish were keepers.  Fish still coming out of 8 to 14 feet of water.  Secondary points and channel swing type banks were the best.  We caught several in that particular area.  We then headed toward the mouth of Price Branch in one of the big coves just east of the mouth of Price Branch.  Started toward the back and worked toward the main lake.  Caught quite a few back there too.  We then headed back to Orleans Trail to finish out our day and caught a couple more on secondary points.  We got off the water at 4:00 p.m.   When it was all said and done, we boated 49 bass.  15 were keepers with the biggest being 17 1/4 inches long.  3 came on the rock crawler  and 46 on the ned in green pumpkin.  
    And we almost didn't go because we thought the fish weren't going to bite.  You just never know.
    Water temps were 44.5 to start the day and 47.5 when we got off the water.
