Bass Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

What a difference a day makes. I was out yesterday and tried some areas hoping the fish had moved up. Didn't have any luck other than short fish. Went back out this morning and we had 10 keepers, 2 over 5 lbs, and top 5 probably went 20 lbs.

Fish are mainly located on the flats and we caught most fish on crankbaits. The windy side caught more fish. Had one of the big fish on plastic, but the other 9 came on crankbaits. One short on a spinnerbait, don't know what they aren't chasing one of these, but they seem to prefer the cb. Had better luck on the flats closer to deeper water.

Hope this helps some. Lots of big fish out there, so good luck!!

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help you find some fish, but if you concentrate on the flats, you should find some fish.

As I mentioned in a earlier post-- I only began fishing Stockton in July. So far my fishing has been confined to the western side of the lake, north of the 215 bridge, and within about 1/4 mile of the ramp at Greenfield, is it?

I don't have a lot of experience on the lake, and just wondered if you could be a little more specific about "the flats"

Are there "flats north of the bridge? How deep are these flats?

I'm not trying to be a smart a**, I could really use some help here. I will probably be driving down from my KC area home at least twice a month til the fish quit biting, or the ramps freeze up. (Does this lake freeze, or are the ramps sometimes iced in?)

I thank you all for any help. I am in love with this lake, and will learn it over time, but, I would like to get more familiar

quickly. I contacted my buddy in Springfield yesterday and he is picking me up a topo map, which should help a


Thanks to all,
