    Skeeter ZX190 got a reaction from Daryk Campbell Sr in 3/21 fishing report   
    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.

    Put in a Roark Bluff today got on the water about 8:30 fished till about 2pm. Ran down to sons Creek area started to fishing secondary points with 45 degree banks with rock about as big as a football to the size of your fist. Caught the first keeper about 20 minutes into the day ended up having 4 total Keepers  with one right under 5 pounds. 7 bass all together. Six Largemouth in one small mouth. Warmest water we found was 48.7 degrees water still has good color with about 2ft of visibility. Ran down the big sac arm  for a little bit did not have any bass but did catch one 18 inch walleye on a jerkbait. All the bass came on wiggle warts (green and brown Craw patterns). All the bass were scattered and in 10ft or less. She was the only female all day and the only time we had a double was when I caught her my partner caught a male that we feel was with her. Rest of the Bass where single males. Caught the last fish about 1:45. We felt after we left that if we had been on the water at dawn we would have caught more fish. I think we had some high pressure move in about 10-10:30 and the bite sent south quick on us.
    Good luck guys if winter would ever let go this year, when it does the fishing for all species are going to explode!

    Put in at Old State Park around 7:30am...water was definitely stained at the ramp. Ran to clean water which started at mile long bridge...started down by the darn with a jerkbait and it was pretty slow for the first couple hours...water was around 44 deg.  Moved to around mile long bridge and started fishing secondary points and started catching fish...they were definitely stacked on some steeper points...would catch 3-5 fish on each point that had bigger rock and a drop off.  Decided to run up to sons creek and the water was dirty running up there...it cleared a little bit in sons but still stained up by power line cove.  Did catch a couple shorts up there on a rock crawler but wasn’t feeling it and ran back down to cleaner water.  Ended with a rough total of 20 bass with 6 keepers...nothing big just basic 15-16” fish. Almost all caught on jerkbaits with a couple on rock crawler.  Got off the water around 4:30...water had warmed to 46 deg.  Found 49 deg water in the dirty water.

    Put in at 9:30 a.m. at Orleans Trail and started out at the buoy line on the north side of the cove and started working my way down that bank to the east.  I started throwing a jerk bait  and then an A rig.  Did get a small bump on the A rig and saw a small bass follow it.  I noticed on the graph some marks on the bottom in 14 to 16 feet of water.  I pulled out the Ned and had 4 bites and 2 fish in the boat on my first 4 casts.  I ended up catching 9 along that stretch of bank.  From there I headed to Hawker and threw the A rig and jerk bait.  Caught a keeper largemouth on the A rig but that was it.  Headed for State Park and caught a couple on the ned.  Then started working my way back toward Orleans Trail.  By the end of the day I had caught 21 bass and 1 REALLY nice walleye that I think was around 22 inches long.  My measuring board goes to 18 1/2 and the tail hung over by quite a bit.    Caught 15 on the ned, 2 on the A rig and 5 on the jerk bait.  6 of the bass were over 15 inches but nothing bigger than 16.  Overall a better day than Monday in both quantity and quality.

    Aarchdale and i put in at Masters at 6:45. Overcast with lite wind. We tried the point to the left with nothing. Moved across the lake and i picked up 2 keepers on a jerkbait. 3 hours went by before Andy caught 2 keeps a few minutes apart. Another 30 minutes and we rounded a point and i caught 2 more keeps pretty quick. About 75 yards down we lit them up. I caught 4 keepers on 4 casts. That turned into a double minutes later for us. 
    Off the water at 12:30.  Ned, SB, crank, jig. All fish came on the JB.  We ended up with 19 fish total with 16 keepers.  Far better than i had expected.

    Skeeter ZX190 reacted to YakAttack in 3/2 at Turnback   
    Put in at 2 pm on Friday around the Turnback area.  Brought home a couple of crappie and four whites.  Water temperature was 54 F.  Spent the entire time pulling cranks.  Pitching jigs on a kayak in the wind can be a bit difficult!  Also caught four good largemouth ( three of legal size)  and a big drum.  Was pretty excited to catch my personal best crappie on Stockton...it was 14.5 inches long.  Looking forward to things heating up this spring!

    First time on Stockton since last September.   Started fishing about 9:30 am and fished until sundown.   Started at Orleans Trail and fished between there and State Park.  Ended up with 14 in the boat (15 if you include a big gizzard shad I snagged).  7 came on a green pumpkin ned.  The other 7 came on a Megabass 110 +1 in Pro Blue.  I caught the bass trifecta.   Also caught a 20 inch walleye.  I would say most of the fish came in 8 to 12 feet of water.  The water coming out of Price Branch only had about 1 to 2 feet of clarity.  Same with Hawker.  The smaller tributaries like Orleans Trail, had a good 5 to 8 foot clarity.  Temps ranged from 42 to 45 degrees.
