5-26 Evening trolling

Recommended Posts

Stockton is really producing nice fish.  Had 2 over 19 inches and 1-24 inch walleye.  Banana bait in fire-tiger trolled 2.4 mph, 8-14 fow.  Picked up a few crappie, small mouth on top water.  Thanks for the tip on fire tiger.  Lots of beds.  Bass were biting on anything you cast.  Frogs to caroline rig.

Haven't been catching much bass, but I don't generally run cranks that shallow.

Trolling flicker shad in slick mouse and firetiger, 8 out of 10 were on the slick mouse with lead core 18 feet down in 25-40 fow. The big slabs love it, and I'll pick up a walleye now and then.

Purple tiger was doing good too until I lost it in a brush pile, need to replace that one, it's always been a productive color.

First pic from Thursday night. Quit early as I had enough for dinner in 2 hours. Second pic was from last week.

Also caught a 4lb carp on a crappie jig, gave my 10ft rod a workout.

Haven't had much luck dropping jigs, the crappie seem awfully scattered right now.

Well done and a nice fat walleye for a bonus!

9 days ago I was trolling #7 Flicker Shads in Uncle Rico and Pink cougar in about 28-32' and had the same luck as you (Mr Giggles). Fire tiger

has been a long time favorite color of mine but they didn't want that or a solid purple. The Uncle was as close to a purple bait as they would

take. I was trolling with braid, 1.5 mph, about 12-14' deep in clear water with a temp of 76-78 south of twin bridges. I had several shorts but the

majority were decent sized females, all with eggs when we cleaned them. Evidently, they are moving deeper which I guess isn't surprising.

Thanks for the report Mr G ...especially the heads up on getting back to fire tiger.
