No. The majority of the lake is less than 4 feet. Try fox lake.

Is Beaver Dam a good lake for boating? Ie. water skiing, wakeboarding, tubing?  Some have said it may be too shallow.  

Thanks!

Another sucessfull couple days on the lake.  Tru turn hooks outproduced jigs for a change, and live bait was key for murky conditions. Bigger bait.  Good numbers of fish caught , multi species,  big jumbo perch stretching 13,  big slabs turning darker,,a few pumpkin seeds and gills,  alot of little eyes,  and lots of bullheads and cat fish. Some cats aproaching 22 inches.If u want cats and bullheads try a float vs traditional bottom rigs, leave your lead feom bobber to hook longer than actual depth on a slip rig, and you will cover more ground and still maintain bottom contact, kicking up silt and drawing attention to fish, this works well on a windy day.  Good luck all.

Out yesterday 3:00 to 6:20 pm. The wind made fishing a bit difficult but the bite was pretty good. One 12" bullhead, one nice gill and a 9"walleye. The rest were cats.

Two cats out today on g. Biggest being 18". Was trying for perch or crappies. Did have on something big, didn't see what it was after fighting it for at least ten minutes. Stayed down the whole time. With that said, where other shore accessible fishing spots for panfish? Thanks, and tight lines

Yes if you turn on your messenger. Of course what happened in past years might not be the same as now though...

Solid, I have a question. How fast were you retrieving that crank? I've never caught a northern before, I'd like to try it some time.

I've had more luck for northern below the dam throwing cranks.  Last couple times I've been there I caught some.

Had a blast today, showed a few folks i met, how to fish bd and was rewarded with some thank yous and smiles ear to ear as a free trial run for upcomming guide service. At any rate, pounded them well, and taught coservation as well.  Kept enough for mom for mothers day,..and a few for burritoes.  The rest released.  Crappies starting to turn a little, biggest was 12.875 give or take a few tenths.  About a pound and a half. Biggest perch was 12.187,  many let go to grow,,biggest gill 8.5,..biggest sunnie,..8.25..biggest hybrid,..8..biggest walleye,..10.75,..many let go,..all little cigars.  Biggest meow meow 23.125,,biggest brown, bullhead 14 even.  Many a fish let go.  Jumbo reds, tuffys,  and other methods used for our success.  Seemed better off than most i talked to..thanks again to those who participated for my trial run.  Will post pics tomorrow ..
