Fishing Report


Recommended Posts

lake temp is about 85, and the water is getting a little clear. level is down about 5 foot.

walleye are awesome. No better word for it. great time to take the first timer walleye fishing and show them how to put fish in the boat. I had 3 people out tonight for 2 hours and everyone caught walleye. We probably had over 20 total, but of course they were not all keepers. Got enough to feed on though.

now you heard about how much fun I had with my group, here comes the way we did it. we used a bottom bouncer with an intense action crawler hook on about a 2 foot leader. 1/2 of a crawler ran straight off the hook, and drifted or used trolling motor to work areas in 20 foot of water. good strong hits, stayed with the worm, and continually put fish in the boat all evening. They were thrilled, and that is what it is all about!!

Crappie are on main lake brush piles on jigs and minnows. i put jigs because someone out there is outfishing me with a jig. i hear about limits being caught using a crappie jig. i pull up, catch one, then have to go to a minnow. fish about 18 foot down. big big crappie are biting. very few you have to measure.

Bass, catching them while crappie fishing on brush piles. haven't had time to go after them only.

catfish are still on the drifting pattern from my last report. you can catch 10 per day!!

whites are surfacing. I believe you can only have 4 over 15" so check your rules. don't want ot pay a fine for a white bass. great time to take a kid fishing. right before evening, get on a flat or point, and wait for the fish to start chasing shad.

I still have a couple days open next week, so give me a call and I will help you and your friends or family catch some memories!!

Thanks for the report Bob. I haven't been able to buy a keeper walleye on Stockton the last few trips down. I haven't used the intense action crawler hooks for a while. Guess I should have, I had switched to trolling cranks on lead to cover more water and hopefully get reaction bites...VERY limited success and no keepers. Leave me a few for Labor Day weekend.

Thanks for the report Bob. I think I am going after the whites and walleye tomorrow. I did check the regs and they say no more than 4 over 18". Those would be some BIG whites!

I think that the 4 over 18 was for the Strippers and Hybrids, all three are classified as white bass.
