If you are looking for bullheads, go now. Was below the dam last weekend and can't keep them off.

Tried it last night. Weeds are worse than a week ago. Hate to see what it's going to be like come August. Terrible fishing last night. A few hits but no fish to show for my efforts. Spent more time clearing the motor of weeds and retying cut lines caused by the zebras than I did fishing. Between the zebras and the commercial fishermen removing tons of rough fish that tear up the bottom (keeping weeds down) - it's going to be tough going.

I hear you about government. Wish they would do jobs they r supposed to do and stay out of everything else. Most of the invasive species come in from other countries. In the ballast water in ships, etc. and others are brought here to control a certain problem without thinking of the new problems they are going to cause. Typical for a bloated bureaucracy!!

SnowSlayer - I wonder if we really need more government in our lives? I don't think government is the (total) answer. However, I'd like to know who monitors or checks commercial fishing nets for invasive species like zebra mussels? Those critters got a shelf life out of water for about a week. BDL being a shallow lake - the clearer water has to or will have an affect eventually on fishing. Perhaps driving walleyes to more of a night bite. A few summers ago I was pulling 2' walleyes out of the algae slime in less than 3 FOW during the day. I don't see that happening now. Then again, I'm not going to miss the slime either :>).

Catnround, hard to tell what the effect of the zebra mussels will be on this lake. Similar questions were asked years ago about Winnebago. Overall I think they were a positive. Certainly didn't harm the walleyes and now the smallmouth bass are incredible on that lake. Only time will tell. Wish our government would become more proactive when it comes to invasive species entering our waterways.

Just wondering if anyone found a minn kota terrova auto pilot remote at or near fish camp boat landing. Fished here a couple weeks ago and no longer can find my remote. May have left it sitting on my boat during loading or driving away and it may have fallen off at some point. I know this is a shot in the dark but worth the effort I guess... please pm me or call/text 920 350 2926. Thanks

Finally made it out on BDL with the boat for the first time this year. Took a night trip to do it. Caught 9 cats - missed a lot more. BUT, what's with all the weeds; moreover, the zebra mussels??? I missed at least a dozen bites because my hooks were encrusted with mussels. No wonder why the clearer water and weed growth in areas of the lake that years ago didn't have emergent vegetation. I fouled my prop 4 times, each way, just crossing the lake. I wonder though on account of the mussels - what this means for the lake in the big picture? It can't be good.

Went to the lake about 4:30pm Monday, fished for an hour. Lots of catfishermen, but didn't see many fish. We used nightcrawlers with some catfish attractant on them (Lucky 7 Stinky Cheese) and we had 5 in an hour with one rod each, two people, plus 2 big brown bullheads. WINDY made it hard or we would have had more.

Fish Saturday night, edge water park side of the lake, cats were biting before sun down. was using fathead minnows with a floating jig on the bottom. mix of flathead and channel cats. hang on to your pole or it will get pulled in. caught one huge bullhead. the first in years. think the bullies are getting eaten by the cats and walleye. just my thoughts.

Was out Friday night by the railroad trestle shore fishing targeting bullies and cats. Was pretty quiet till 7pm or so and the bite picked up. Ended up with 3 large bullies for the smoker and 3 good sized cats for some fillets. Bullies were biting really light and were full of spawn. Cats were hitting hard when they bit. Just crawlers on bottom and was a lot of fun. Fished till the winds became unbearable right before dark.

Hows the catfishing here? Would like to know if people use crawlers or stink bait?
