4/20 walleye


Bird Watcher

Recommended Posts

Made it out about 5:30 yesterday evening after work.  Had a limit in 45 minutes.  ended up with one more keeper, 3 shorts and two crappie and left at 7:30.  all on BB and crawler harness.

15-20' .9mph

I intentionally targeted channel swing points in a part of the lake that I have never fished for postspawn walleye in years past.    It didn't matter if it was in a creek arm or on the main lake I caught fish on all of them I fished.  The lake is just on fire for walleye right now.  Everyone I talk to is catching them too.  I've never seen it like this in the 26 years or so I've been fishing Stockton. 

good luck

@Bird Watcher any place where a guy might see some walleye action from the shore?? or are they all out in 15-20 feet still? I don't have a boat yet but being from Minnesota, if i found some 'eyes here in Missouri i could sure make some of my old fishin buddies jealous!!

Thanks for the update

Not to be too ambiguous or high level, but yeah, just about anywhere.  15-20' is a short cast or less along a lot of channel banks and points.  Almost all of the campgrounds that I can think of have multiple main lake points adjacent to the channel.  Study this map if you don't already have it.  under "map options", set your safety depth at 20' max and some spots in areas that you are familiar with should jump out at you.

If you need more help send me a pm and I'll show you some spots I've caught them lately.

Just before dark, usually you can pick up a walleye,or two, off the east end of the dam... Late Feb, when they are spawning you can limit out in 15 minutes... Look at your map, or the link above, and you can see the drop-off..

@zarraspook were creeping around towards February. Could you message me about what part of the dam you're talking about? I'd love to get after some eyes here in a few weeks
