No ice above the dam. Still a significant amount of ice off of G by kwik trip. River was open & didn't see anything but a buffalo caught. Dam was closed.
Timbo...I haven't heard of any legal walleyes being caught this winter either. However, when the DNR did fish surveys a couple years ago they estimated that there are only 1.2 walleyes per acre in Beaver Dam Lake. The panfish that I've caught have small gills and small crappies in them. Not mentioning all the small buffalo and small bass in the lake. The lack of abundance of walleyes and the great quantities of feed available make conditions for a bad bite overall. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the gazillion little catfish out there as well.

Was out yesterday caught 5 small walleye on tip ups using fatheads. All about 5 to 8in. Tried using small/medium shiners cant seem to get a bite then. Haven't heard of a legal walleye being caught out of this lake all winter. Anyone having some sort of success fishing for eyes?
