    Weather people said substantially more rain would be arriving the next few days and that was enough to motivate me to get in a quick trip before it got here....
    Launched at Cedar Ridge South Friday morning about 10:30. Had run the wipers off and on along the way and as I left the ramp I donned my rain jacket to ward off some off the drizzle. Keeping
    dry wasn't the only reason either...the lake air was chilly for a June day and the jacket felt good. There was a stiff SW breeze creating a 10" chop but the the predicted 20+ mph wind wasn't
    happening...at least not yet! Started out fishing a fire-tiger stand-up jig with half a crawler off a point in 24-30 ft. It didn't take long before I had boated 2, 12"  channel cats then a 19" walleye.
    The predicted wind now arrived and boat control was becoming challenging. Soon the sun came out and the jacket came off but it seemed like the bite was now off too. Switched to other jigs
    and tried 2 more points and was rewarded with 2 more cats. By now I'd had enough so I decided to run downwind to Masters Cove and try trolling for crappie in the more protected back of the
    creek. Pulled 2, #7's and 1, #9 Flicker-shads ... 2- Fire-tiger and 1 Pink Cougar. All three produced and 6 keeper crappie were boated plus 1 short. 
    The crappie were suspended at 15 ft in 26- 30 ft of water. 
     
    Conditions:
    Lake Level- 884.6 ft. (about an inch higher than last week's trip, roughly 17.5 ft over normal pool) 
    WT- 75 degrees on points and 77 in the creek
    Clarity- 30"
    Wind- SW  15-20 mph.
    Cloudy with drizzle in late morning becoming warm (78 degrees) and sunny in the afternoon.
     
    Even though he wouldn't lie still...I did manage a quick pic of "Walter" walleye. ☺️
    Tight lines,

    I haven't seen a post from dprice in quite some time.  I hope all is well. I've never personally met him, but the discussions I've had with him, and his posts on this forum, he seems like a nice guy.  From what I could tell, he can REALLY fish a jig.  I believe he has a son with the name dirtracer on this forum.

    Back on the water again this morning out of State Park and ended up with a limit of crappie and two walleye over 20 inches! We tried trolling the flicker shad’s but really didn’t have much luck with them. All of our fish except for two came by trolling jigs in shad patterns in 12 to 20 feet of water.   About half the crappie we caught were females that still had eggs in them, some of the eggs had hardened up and I think are starting to be reabsorbed.   Water temps were 64 to 68°

    Pretty steady day on Stockton.  Third limit of crappie in a row.  Pulling Flicker Shad over structure..most were in 20 to 25 foot of water.  Water temp. was about 63 degrees.  Caught four whites and a couple short walleye.  My buddies Gerad,Judd and I  pretty much had the lake to ourselves!  We didn't see one other boat from our kayaks.  Bald eagle fly-overs never get old!

    Fished out of Mutton and trolled in and near spawning coves with Flickers. Had a limit of crappie in a few hours. They were 15-18' down in anywhere from 15-40 fow. Pretty scattered but once you found a pod, had some doubles.
    Then switched to walleye around 11:30 and caught a limit and then some. All fish came around wind blown main lake points. Fished bottom bouncers and Road Runner heads tipped with a half crawler. Also had a couple of nice cats and a sow white while fishing for walleye.
    One of my better days on Stockton with a north wind.

    Great job.  Just when it should turn on we get cold temperatures and now a flash flood watch with the potential of several inches of rain.  This could be a near duplicate of what happened last year.  The fish move into spawn and the lake rises several feet.
    Maybe I should take up golf! 😁

    The crappie should be on the banks bigtime.  If they aren't,  they should be close.  I would bring a bunch of minnows and use a bobber.  Set it for 18 inches and work the banks.  Depending on how many kids you have, you may be spending all your time taking fish off and putting minnows on!  😀

    Good job Dutch. 
    In my humble opinion, the ned is one amazing bait.  I know some may scoff at it, but it sure produces for me.  A couple of years ago I had a friend call me up to get some advice on what to throw.  He had been invited to go with someone that used to fish Stockton a lot back in the 80's. I told him to throw the ned.  His friend was throwing something that used to be a hot bait back when he fished Stockton.   After my friend caught his 17th bass, the other guy broke down and asked for one. I guess he spent the rest of the trip catching fish and just shaking his head in disbelief.

    Skeeter ZX190 got a reaction from Lifes2Short in Heading down Sunday   
    I put in at Hawker and first went to Googer.  After that I went up Sons Creek.  I was looking, but never saw you Lifes2Short.  I started fishing about 9:00 am and quit around 6:30 pm.  I did pull out of Hawker around 4:00 and drove to Stockton for a bite and then put in at Orleans Trail.  Glad I did.  I had only caught 9 fish from 9:00 until 4.  Caught 11 more from 4:00 until 6:30.  Everything came on the ned except a white bass on a jerkbait.  Probably the most vicious bite I've ever had on a jerkbait.  
    All in all I had 20. Two of them were white bass, a channel cat and everything else were bass  (smallmouth, spots, and largemouth.)   Maybe even a meanmouth.  Not one would keep except the 2 spots I caught since they only have to be 12 inches.  
    I am really out of practice.  I had more "swing and misses" than I care to admit.  Also broke 4 off on the hookset.  Me thinks I need to spool some new fluorocarbon.   
    Near as I could tell, the best spots were on points in 5 to 12 feet of water.  Water temps were 55.5 to 58.5.

    Skeeter ZX190 reacted to Lifes2Short in April 1&2-Bass Report   
    Put in both mornings at Roark and stayed exclusively in the Suns Creek area.  Ended up yesterday with about 15 bass the biggest being 3.8. Most of the bass yesterday came on a spinner bait and jerk bait, the spinnerbait fish came out of 3 feet of water or less and the jerkbait fish were on main lake points.  Today there were a few caught on the spinner bait again but the vast majority of the bass today, 22 total, came on the jig in 5 to 10 feet of water.   Today we had strong westerly winds which I think really helped with getting the bass active. Water temps pretty much everywhere I went were 48 to 51°, the previous two nights cold overnight lows really took the water temps back down again.  Tight Lines!
    P.S. The ticks are out!

    Skeeter ZX190 got a reaction from bassfisher in March 26 bass report (I guess)   
    First of all I want to give a big shout out to Lifes2Short, Dutch, Bassfisher, Jmontgo, etc. for not catching all of the bass in Stockton and leaving me 2 to catch. It would be nice though if you could provide GPS coordinates for those 2 fish (should have been 3, I missed one that was a solid bite) because it would cut down on gas usage and time!  😀
    What a difference a year makes.  On March 21, 2018 we caught like 49 bass with 15 being keepers.  Water temps a year ago were 44 to 45.  Light wind was out of the northwest.   Yesterday the water temps were 45 to 46 with light winds out of the northeast?  Seemed to vary depending on where you were at.  Water was very clear. I fished from the dam to close to State Park.  I hit many of the same spots as last year but couldn't find any fish, but many spots I sure was showing stuff on the graph. 
    I got a total of 4 bites and landed 2 fish, a 14 7/8ths largemouth and a 14 inch smallmouth.  The largemouth came on a phantom green rock crawler and the smallmouth on the ned.  The other 2 bites were on the ned. 
    It left me scratching my head wondering where are the fish?
