  1. Have a pair of Ranger wind screens that came off of a 2011 Ranger 620. 150.00 for the pair. WM
  2. @Liphunter, I didn't think to resurrect this thread on the Stockton Lake Forum this spring. Thanks for the reminder! WM
  3. Thanks for the skillets Billethead. Was awesome meeting you! WM
  4. Dang, I just sent a PM about that one. Looks like you beat me by about 8 minutes! LOL! WM
  5. Great articles RPS! Has been a while since I first read them. Might have been on the old Stockton Lake Forum?? Anyway, back then I tied several harnesses like Chucks. Next time I get to Stockton, I'm gonna try one again. WM
  6. My previous boat was a 24 volt trolling system. I used the Interstate batteries like lmt out and replaced those with the Sam's Club AGM batteries. The Sam's batteries were best, but I only ran those one season before selling the rig. I see they are about $160.00 on their website! Not a battery expert, but have been told higher reserve capacity is more important than cold cranking amps for trolling motor. I also tried to troll with the wind at my back as much as I could with the 24 volt trolling motor. I have Power Pro Depth Hunter metered line on most of my reels for the same reason, while still being able to utilize the smaller reels and flippin' switch for letting line out. Not as precise as a line counter, but has been god enough for me! Rule of thumb from the guys that taught me is 1 oz of bouncer per 10 feet of water. WM
  7. Great article lmt out! I have been pretty lucky in meeting up with some really good Missouri walleye fishermen through another forum that is defunct now. They helped me a ton and let me hop in their boats to see how it is done. I don't do anything very different from lmt out. One thing he didn't mention when doing that dragging the bouncer on the bottom thing is you need to hold your rod in your hand when doing that. It prevents snags and helps feel the bite. Walleye like to follow your bait. I've found a lot of times they will grab that bait and continue swimming along with it in their mouth. With the rod in your hand, you can feel it load up a bit. I let the rod tip fall back a few feet and then set the hook. Like Tanderson, I tie most of my own rigs. I use slow death rigs more than anything. I use 12-15 lb fluorocarbon line. I use Quantom Accurist reels as the flippin' switch makes it easier to let line out with one hand on the rod/reel. Not sure what else is out there with a flippin switch? I bought a couple of Scheels 8'8" pro angler rods a couple of years ago and really like those rods for bouncing. We broke the tip off of one and got a full refund for a trade in, They didn't have those in stock, so I paid the difference in an upgrade, I think it's a proguide rod? Not sure as it is in my boat in Missouri. That rod is an awesome trolling rod. It feels five pounds lighter than the Pro angler rod, which is awesome holding a bouncing rod in your hand all day. WM
  8. The wife and I fished April 30th 10:00AM-3:00PM. Found both of our limits on a main lake point in the Big Sac Arm by noon. Had nine keepers and four shorts. On May 1st I fished solo until she joined for lunch at State Park Marina. I caught a limit on points in the Little Sac Arm. She had a couple of shorts, I had three shorts. All keeper fish caught bottom bouncing Slow Death Rigs 16-20 feet of water. Fun trip! WM
  9. Great job! Appreciate the report we will be down next weekend. WM
  10. I had to make a quick trip to Stockton in the cold on Tuesday. This pic is looking north from the Mile Long Bridge. WM
  11. Great Fish! Hope I catch her someday too! WM
  12. Best report I've ever read on TR, Bill! WM
