New State Record Smallie?

Recommended Posts

Can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard

”the next state record smallmouth will come from xxxxxx” they usually say Taneycomo, Table Rock, or some even say the Osage River. But I believe Stockton is the best bet. I know a guide last year caught a 6.8 on Stockton. Or something close to that

I love Stockton, it is a great fishery! Sadly my lake is so low due to lack of rainfall my Ranger is stranded on my boat lift and may be there for a long time or until I hire a crane to lift it off (which I cannot afford to do). The year before last in the fall  I fished it about every other weekend and I had some 35-50 fish days fishing by myself. I have caught a lot of small mouths but nothing over two pounds. Lots of 3 lb spots and 3-4 largemouth and some really nice walleyes. Looking forward to fishing it again once the rains come.

Here’s a picture of a good one I caught in Michigan on Labor Day in 2008.  It was the only fish I caught that day, but when I was fighting it in the clear water it had another one chasing it just as big. I had no scale or tape on board at the time but my buddy said it was around the seven pound mark. I will never know but it was awesome. Since then there has been a 9 and a 9.98 caught in the area. The latter was caught on a danged night crawler of the fellas dock!
