Stockton Lake Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

water was about 73 and clarity was normal. water level was close to norm but I didn't check exact level

walleye are mving shallower and can be caught in 15 foot and less on jigs and crawlers. either drift or troll them over the points at about 1mph. several fish are being caught this way so again, if you are having trouble, pick a coupld different points and work them hard. it's all about the confidence and getting a few bites, then you can load up the boat. Of course i always have a few open days to help you build your confidence, LOL, but it's a lot cheaper to just read it on here or call me.

Crappie we had lots of them today in 20 foot and less on channel drops and brush piles on 1/16 oz jigs with black and chart bodies. verticle jig them and feel the light tap, then set the hook. remember it's a 10" limit so don't make a mistake and keep them short fish. it can be expensive and hurts future fishing.

I think I have said this in the past few post but the mdc and corp did an awesome job putting in brush piles. Use them, Use them use them!!! The gps spots have been marked and you can download onto your unit. If you see me at the ramp I will try to get a few for humminbird and lowrance set up and see if i can't help some of you get this done. I sent a couple guys to one of them today and they had 6 keepers and lots of shorts in the first hour.

bass are hitting jigs, spinnerbaits, and topwater in the backs of covers where they are chasing shad. been some fun fishing so again, move till you locate the fish but stay shallow and fish on spots that don't get all the pressure.

catfsih are still on flats and are hitting shad.

I've got a few weekdays open next week and the 11-13th off the next week. if someone is wanting to get the spots downloaded and go catch some crappie we can work out a deal for you. give me a call and we can talk.

Good luck fishing and don't forget to post some results about how and where you catch your fish. Best lake in missouri, so I know people are ripping some fish without telling us.
