Baits Motel and By The Dam Bait Our 2nd shop at the Dam in Beaver Dam reports a lot of walleyes being caught below the dam (where it's open season) that a lot of small non keeper walleys are being caught, mostly on Magnun and Large Fatheads. As the water warms, more keepers have been caught as well. At least we know they are in there. Above the dam a lot of walleyss have been caught this past week and, released of course. Many of those would have been keepers including a few in the 22" sie. Tomorrow, Opening Day lookss promising for fishing walleyes above the dam. The big story has been the catfish. Love em, or hate em, big cats, and lots of them are being caught on small fatheads by everyone out there fishing for crappies, which by the way, are hitting like mad too. For crappies, and cats,I'd try Edgewater park, and this entire Eastern shoreline. this week the crappies have backed offshore by 10 yards or so. Casting from shore as far as you can toss your bobber has been the secret this week. Uee a minimite and small fathead minnow, but watch out, the cats have been hitting minimites and crappie minnow combinations too. I'd be set to catch walleyes, crappies, and cats tomorrow, using a simple Rocket Botter for longer casts, a light cloored minimite and small fathead combo. If you are fishing strictly for cats, use stink bait or crawlers. Walleyes, lareg and magnum/"Tuffie" fatheads. Perch have remained elusive, but the few caught now and then all over the lake have been nice siaed. It looks like a great day tomorow with the fish cooperating the way they have been this past week. Don't forget to buy your 3 tickets to win the HONDA 4x4 the Lake Association is putting up this year. THE MONEY PUTS FISH BACK INTO THE LAKE! We all want that! Right? Remember, YOU put the fish back in the lake, NOT the DNR. Thanks all and be nice. Don't trash the lake. If you catch too many cats, let us know. We can help with that.
