    Been out the last couple of days, yesterday was pretty tough with the wind but managed eight nice keepers and today it was a beautiful day on the water with little wind and 16 keepers!  Brush piles on the main lake, 20 to 25 feet of water, jigs in shad & electric chicken. Water temps are 38° and the water has cleared up really nicely in the mid-lake area.  Headed out again tomorrow. Tight Lines!

    Just to the left of that huge sycamore tree on the point just north of the bridge. You will know when you are there when you see that loon in the water, the loon with the bad eye. If the loon is not around look for the stump that is located by the chunk-rock bank next to the old catfish float.   Need I say more?  Tight Lines! 😁

    Went out both Thursday and Friday to try and catch more slabs. Quite the chilly start to the mornings but calm and flat days on the water are always a bonus in January!  Over the two days we ended up with 32 nice crappie and one keeper walleye.  I have noticed that the crappie bite has really slowed down since really hammering them in mid December, I’m thinking they might have moved out to deeper water??  Water temps are 38 to 40 and we found the crappie on brush piles in 20 to 30 feet catching all of them on jigs. Tight Lines!

    I had to take advantage of the nice weather and headed back up yesterday afternoon for some more fishing.  I launched at Cedar Ridge at 11:00 and started fishing the insides of points in that area.  It didn't take long I caught a couple at my first stop on a jerkbait.  I headed to my next spot and same thing I caught 2 on the jerkbait.  I noticed that all the fish I was catching were farther back in the pockets a ways from the points and in a little shallower water.  I put down the jerkbait and picked up a wart.  I pulled in a little closed to the bank and fished my way back out to the point.  I caught 3 more on the wart on my second pass.  I went to the next spot and did the same thing.  Caught 2 right on the bank with the wart and another a little deeper with the jerkbait.  I was kind of caught in the middle of do I fish the bank with the wart or do I pull out and fish the jerkbait.  I choose the jerkbait mainly to try out my new Lews jerkbait special rod.  I was really impressed with how it fit for my style jerkbait fishing.  When fish jerkbait and most topwaters I hold the rod in my right hand and reel with the left.  When I fish that way I hold the rod behind the reel on the handle.  Short pistol style handle is great for that style and at 6'7" it is short enough that I don't hit the water with my rod tip when working the bait.  I am not a tall man.  I ended up with 19 yesterday with only 7 keepers.  They had moved a little further back in the pockets I would find them 50 to 100 yards from the point towards the back of the pockets.  The sunny side seemed to be better.  Merry Christmas everyone and tight lines.

    What a difference a day makes in the weather and the crappie bite! Loaded the boat today with some really nice SLABS for the hot oil!!  Water temps were 42 and the crappie seem to have moved out onto the main lake flats, we found them in 16 to 25 feet of water. The brush piles I was doing so well on two weeks ago didn’t give up a crappie at all today or yesterday.  Jigs in shad colors were all we fished with.  Tight Lines!

    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.

    Put on the water this morning around 9 o’clock and fished until 330. Pretty tough day for the crappie bite, ended up catching about six with only one keeper. However had a good day with the bass and this lovely large walleye, all of them are still swimming.   The walleye and some of the bass came on swim baits and most of the other bass came on creature baits and jigs in 12 to 18 feet of water on secondary points and channel swing banks. Tight lines!

    I read about the tin boat tournament at Rouark.  I suspected one would be out of Hartley and maybe State Park so I went to the dam.  There were very few boats and most of them were walleye or crappie fishing.  I worked both sides of the lake catching some spinnerbait fish.  When that quit I started toward State Park.  I worked my way up the river hitting different types of spots.  Cranks worked a little and worms and jigs produced some. 
     
    I wound up catching 11 with 5 of them being keepers.  The best was a greenie about 3.5 pounds.

    Skeeter ZX190 reacted to redshad in Good days - Slow days Camping 9-27 to 9-30   
    We were camped at Cedar Ridge for a few days arrived the 27th to the 30th.  The bass fishing was good when we had some clouds and slow with the bright sun.  Thursday was slow all day the bites were few and very small.  Friday started the same way we fished all the way to the back of Maze and only had 6 fish with 1 keeper.  We headed in around 11:30 for a bite to eat and the clouds started rolling in and the wind switched to the north.  We headed back out about 2:30 still cloudy and windy.  The bite was on.  I stared by hooking a good one on a plopper.  Fought it for 30 yards and got it up to the boat she was tired and rolled on her side.  Me being not so bright decided to boat flip her and off she went.  She was better that 6.  Oh well at least some thing is biting.  We cought them pretty good all afternoon on blades and the plopper.  The plopper doesn't work well on the real windy areas but the spinnerbait will shine in those areas.  We had at least a dozen keepers big about 3.5 and several in the 13 to 14 range.  Saturday morning back to blue bird skies.  The bite was fair for the first couple hours and then slowed down.  I did go back to the big girls house about 6 pm Saturday evening.  Threw my plopper by the same rock and boom.  I had her again, this time it didn't last long she came up shaking her head and out came my plopper.  0 for 2!   Sunday we woke to clouds and hurry out to the water.  I tried big momma again but nothing.  We got on a good blade bite on wood on the flats.  Fence rows were the best.  If you had a single line of trees running across the cove and there were shad present you could catch them.  They were hanging around the trees ambushing shad.  The best water depts. were from 4 to 10 feet.  I did catch a couple keepers in les than 2 feet of water on the plopper.  Best bait was the blades slow rolled around trees in 5-10 feet.  We fished till 11:30 on Sunday had 18 keepers with momma catching the big of 5.6.  Here are some pics of the weekend.

    I had an Ulterra  trolling motor put on yesterday morning and thought it and I needed some quality time together.  I ran down to Stockton and put the boat in.  There was a good south breeze so I decided to try the motor out on some windy spots.  I fished several places and wound up catching 14 bass in 4 hours on a spinnerbait.  That was a good feeling and the trolling motor performed better than I had expected.

    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.
