Not a Stockton story, but a drum story.  My in-laws had a house on the Council Grove Kansas City Lake.  I fished that lake a lot from the time we got married in 1981 until my father-in-law's passing in 2006.  The fishing was really good for all kinds of species, especially after the 1993 floods.  Walleye and crappie were our main targets but there was a really good population of largemouth and spots.

Two years ago my son and I went back to fish for nostalgic sake.  We named a cove in that lake "Jacob skunked Grampy Cove". 😀   I started out throwing a baby brush hog and my son and a friend of his were throwing a ned.  We hadn't been fishing 10 minutes and I got a solid bite.  Set the hook and the fight was on.  About a 5 pound drum.  In that day of fishing we caught around 50 drum.  All were from a pound to probably 6 pounds.  Never experienced anything like it. We tried a variety of baits but drum was about the only thing we caught.  I think we had 2 bass and a couple of bluegill. 

I don't know if the drum just took over the lake, or if they were the only fish biting that day, but I tend to think it was the former.  It was late May when we fished.

Lots of drum today. They are fun to catch on a spoon. We did manage a couple bass and a walleye on the main lake points dragging crawlers. One bass on spinner bait up by the flooded brush. Headed out this evening let it cool down and pleasure boaters get off the lake.
