regarding the smaller 12-15 in cats in the lake. Wish there was some way of gathering them and relocating them to another lake in need of some fish. Think the lake is over run not caught a 2+# yet this year all smalls.

How big do can the cats get in here? The biggest I have ever caught was roughly around 20 inches. Just wondering if that was about it or if they actually get bigger than that.

Caught limit of kitties above the dam. Too small to be called cats. Had them on the grill tonite. Very tasty.

Hey guys how is it ,a guy I work with and I were wondering if there are any specific spots that produce cats more than others and also where they usually go to spawn. Also roughly what time of year they do this. We fish down there fairly regularly by edge water, waterworks and by the boat landing just north of edge water. We usually do pretty well at these spots on multi species but we want to try to focus more on the cats. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also here is a fishing report from sat night at edge water, my wife and I were there from 4:30 to 10:30 and managed 23 bullheads 9 cats and 1 10 1/4" perch it was a great night.

Walleyeeater, your best bet for bass off shore would be to drive the extra 5 miles to fox lake. they are catching bass in the following locations on fox, and all are easy to access. Town Park in Fox lake all along the concrete wall, Chief Kuno Trail by the culvert (if you fish here fish the cattail side more and bigger bass here.), Hwy A by the bridge anywhere by the bridge you will be able to catch quite a few bass. Hope this helps good luck and tight lines. Oh across the river from the bait shop in town there is a public fishing area where you can catch a few bass. again good luck As for bait i like twister tails for casting, or a bobber with either a leech or crawler works best. Crawlers more so than leeches right now, until the water warms up then the leeches will be bait of choice.

On the other note: yeah i may not like that people keep small crappies or bluegills but they are not breaking the law, so all i can do about it is put the ones i catch back and hope they get a chance to grow.

I just want to say that this morning I was above the dam and started fishing at the same time as a middle aged Hmong couple. They put their lines in the water and then the lady walked along the railing and picked up all the trash and threw it away. I was very impressed. As we all know there definitely are many people who leave their trash lay.

Why must we educate other people on the Regulations? If your want to fish and or hunt in an area well it your responsibility to know your regulations. Its not my problem if they speak english or not if they do not know the regs then maybe they shouldn't be fishing.

Its unfortunate you feel that way and already have a preconceived idea about Hmong people. I see many other people who as you put it, "keep everything" too. Yes, small crappies and other fish should be released,but if the fish has no size minimum, its within their right to keep the fish. If they are keeping fish that aren't legal size, its as easy as telling them its too small. Its about educating so that everyone can enjoy the lakes and rivers. Avoid threats and scare tactics and just tell them its not allowed. Remember if they are older they might not know english, so just be patient. If they dont listen, and just disregard the rules then you are right by calling the proper authorities.

As for a report, fished below the dam this morning, really slow a few small crappies and 1 nice walleye. All released.

-be safe, courteous and tight lines everyone!
