5/12 Pulling Cranks

Recommended Posts

Spent a few hours at Mutton today. Pulled flickers all over the place, caught 6 crappie, 4 eyes, and a smallie. Firetiger was the ticket.

Never did find any consistent crappie, just one here, one there.

Caught one more eye and a spot with a jig and crawler. No big eyes unfortunately, three shorts and two that were barely legal.

Every once in a while I would run through a cluster like that, and maybe pull a crappie out of it.

Once the cloud cover went away in the afternoon, the crappie bite seemed to diminish.

I do better with some sun, always have. I wondered if some of those schools were big shad. Had 3 large schools under to boat, threw 1/2 of basspro at them, nada.

Thank you for the update and information on pulling cranks. I am headed down there next Tuesday - Thursday. It'll be my buddy's first time to Stockton after I've talked about it for years.  Our primary purpose is crappie but would like to run into a walleye or. We are bringing bottom bouncers to try for some walleye as well. Not looking for any spots but would you mind letting me know the depth of the water you were fishing  and what depth the fish were hanging at?  Thanks!

20ft in the back of coves. 

Walleye were the same, but they sure weren't in the same places that they were on Sunday.

My cranks were running 15-17ft down.

Thanks! I've been down there trolling cranks  a couple times in the last 3 or 4 years with a different buddy who does it pretty much every year. I have an idea of some places to try and hit. I hope the T-storms clear out early on Tuesday as we will be down there fairly early in the AM. Other than being a little windy, the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday look pretty good. He has a big Lund with a 115 so I think we'll be OK even if it's a little bumpy.  I love Stockton and am hoping to show my buddy what a really cool lake it truly is!
