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!

Snapping turtles that size and and bigger are common. I believe the word you were looking for is Hmongs and yes they seem to have no regard for the regulations. Next time you see them violating call the DNR hotline right away.

was at the point of airport rd last night. I saw a dead turtle about the length of 18+ inches along shore. Since when did the lake have turtles and that big? fishing was ok cats where biting. the DNR needs to get there more often the moun people (not sure if spelled right) keep everything.

If you want some action I would try above the dam. They are catching lots of cat fish. It gets comical watching how some guys catch them. I get a laugh every time I go down there.

You must be reading the total daily bag limit of 25. That is different than the daily bag limit. which for beaver dam is 10.

The daily bag limit is the maximum number of fish that an angler may possess or reduce to his/her possession from a specified waterbody or a portion of a waterbody in one day. The total daily bag limit is the maximum number of fish that an angler may reduce to his/her possession in one day from all waters or portions of waters fished for that day. An angler may combine the catch of a particular species from multiple waters until the total daily bag limit is reached as long as the daily bag limit for each body of water is never exceeded. Be aware that while on the water you may not possess more than the daily limit for that body of water. For example, an angler catches a daily limit of walleye from a 3-bag limit lake. The angler can not then fish another lake with a 2 walleye limit while still possessing the 3 walleye from the previous lake.

This is directly out of the regs, so you can not possess 25 while fishing beaver dam lake and river. The only place a daily limit is 25 is Mississippi river and Winnebago system.
