    Skeeter ZX190 got a reaction from terryj1024 in 5/4 and 5/7 crappie report   
    Put in on 5/4 at State Park and headed toward Shawnee Bend.  Fished some deep cuts along a bluff.  Water temps were 63 to 64 degrees.  Fish were scattered except for one spot we hit were they were ganged up.  We ended up catching our limit of 30 crappie.  Probably caught 70 fish total including bass, perch, and white bass.  All came on either a 1/16th ounce jig in white, or yellow and white.  
    On 5/7 I put in at Long Shoal and headed toward the Hwy 7 bridge and fished a cove on the east side.  The water temps had risen significantly since Friday.  74 degree water.  Started about 2:00 pm and quit at 5:00.  Brought home my limit of 15 crappie.  3 were females that still had eggs but they were runny.  Think the spawn is almost over.   All came on a 1/16th ounce white jig in 2 to 6 foot of water.

    I was one of the vehicles at Ruark Bluff.  If it's that crowded for a Tuesday, what's it going to look like on Saturday???
    My temperature guage was reading 57.1 to 58.5 everywhere we went in Son's creek.

    After reading Lifes2Short's crappie report, I couldn't resist going and giving it a try.  Put in at Ruark Bluff at 9:00 am  and headed up Sons Creek.  57.1 to 58.5 degree water.   Ended up cleaning 28 crappie.  Most were 10.5 to 11.5 but the biggest was 14.  Mixture of males and females.  Most fish came out of 4 to 8 foot of water.  Used a 1/16th ounce jig with a white or white & yellow curly tailed grub.  Also had a bonus 17 inch walleye.  We also caught 2 white bass and a big drum.  Got off the water at 2:00 pm.

    Put in at Aldrich yesterday evening. Fished from 6-9:30pm water was 54 and a little dingy. Had 9 total with 4 keepers. Didn't have a keeper under 11". Action was slower than I anticipated, took a couple day off this coming week so I hope it picks up.

    Made a quick trip to get the boat wet.  Wifey caught a crappie and white bass and I caught this 20 incher. Not on Stockton. Lol  I have a lot to learn about my new electronics and trolling motor but love how the boat handles and there is more than enough space in it. And love the dual axle trailer.  Will give more reviews in the future.

    After waiting for the weather to warm up and the wind to die down I got on the water around 1230.  Went out of state park and fished within a couple of miles of the breakwater. Ended up with 14 between 1230 and 530 including this 7.34 pound beauty. Water temps were 48 to 51. Caught fish on jigs, crank baits and creature baits. Tight Lines!

    Skeeter ZX190 reacted to ewlech in Friday report   
    Fished about 6 hours on Friday out of Cedar Ridge.  First point I stopped at I caught 2 large mouths, one on a jerk bait and one on a Rock Crawler.  Went down the bank past the point and connected with another black bass.  Fished 3 more spots without connecting with anything. Ran up the river past Highpoint and fished a few places but could only find one white bass.  Ran back down below Highpoint and hit a steeper bank and found a few more.  Caught 5 white bass and 3 more black bass.  Ended the day with 12.  Caught them on a Jerk bait, Rock Crawler, Bomber crank bait, and an A-rig.  I usually do well with the Ned rig and after reading some recent reports I was expecting to have some action with it.  I didn’t find any that wanted the Ned today.  Water was 48-53 degrees.
     
    On a side note, the wife and I saw a large bird of prey that looked kind of like a hawk but was too big to be a hawk.  As we got closer, we got a better look at it and it was a Golden Eagle.  The wife had to Google it because I assured her that there weren’t any Golden Eagles in Missouri.  Based on Google, I was mistaken.  I know bald eagles (which we have seen several lately) do not have the white head as juveniles but this was a full grown bird and was way to big to be a juvenile bald eagle (and it wasn't a Turkey Vulture that are all over that area either).  Also saw a large otter on the water’s edge.  We have been seeing more and more otters lately.

    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.
