Caught a limit of cats today . . . and they came quick.  Released another half-dozen or so additionals.  Those kept all ranged between 17 & 23 inches.  Stumbled on some Largemouth . . . no keepers though, but didn't have the right stuff with me either to fish them seriously.  That will be next time.  I expected to see more boats out there being the holiday weekend and all.  But, fine by me :>)

Another great nite bite.  Lots of big ole brown bullheads, one pushing 15 inches..and about a dozen nice cats on cutbait from the lake. Lost my first good size walleye last night, about 20 inches, on cutbait, second one on beaver dam ive seen do that.  Also added a few perch, some night time gills ,small cigar eyes, and crappies to the tally.  Kept a few cats and perch and let the rest go  due to size or conservation, especially crappie , so they could spawn.  Glow rat finkies, and tru turn hooks with fatheads for perch, gills and crappies, slip rigs with cut bait and crawlers for the browns and cats. I have not seen any yellow bass as of lately, if any one gets one, could u post it on this thread, used to love fishin them, but cant seem to find em in here any more.  Had one that should have went on the wall a some years back from here as it was close to the state record, but i released it not knowing its true standing.  Good fishin to all,

Are the crappies done spawning?  Or did the weather interrupt it & they will come back in?

There's always fish below the dam. Are there any good fish below the dam? I don't know.... haven't fished there in a while. I'm pretty sure there's bullhead & carp down there.

Hit the night bite, and no disapointments.  Variety of fish caught again,..crappies, gills, brown bullheads, couple short eyes, and some nice cats.  Tried cut bait this time around, worked well on a seven foot lead to the float.  Minnows for crappies foot and a half on glow white ratfinkies. Gills wanted worms. Fished till morning and hit a differant lake for morning bite.  Crappies still had spawn in em. Cats tight full of spawn and buffalo.

We bought our boat (Glastron SSV 195 Ski-Fish powered by a 4.3 L Mercruiser in/outboard) from a family who lives on Beaver Dam Lake and they used it for many years to water ski and fish on the lake. We have returned to the lake several times to take our kids tubing and every time, there were other boaters skiing and tubing. That said, it is very shallow and we would need to trim up and putt our way to the center of the lake and even going slow, we had a few scares when hitting logs/stumps at the bow before we made it to the center.  A lake map along with our depth finder was a must.  Beaver Dam lake, if treated respectfully, can be great for boating because it's one of the longer lakes in the area. You may get a skewed perspective on LL though because I'm guessing recreational boaters aren't a favorite crowd for dedicated fisherman who share the lake... just a hunch - lol.

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!
