Went off of Fish Camp, right of the island out towards the rock bar. Marked fish all day but they really didn't want to come off the bottom at all. I did not see anyone really catch anything worth keeping, bites were few and far between. It could have been just the amount of pressure these fish see all winter or it could've been the weather. Had the best luck with a 1/64 tungsten jig tipped with a pink Clam "Polli" 1" plastic. Be careful going out ice is melting fast!

Good luck and TIGHT LINES!

Tried fishing from about 11:30-1pm today and didn't mark a fish. Was fishing out by Fish Camp. First time trying this lake, and will try it again sometime, but today was not my day.

I have never fished Beaver Dam and I am sick of sitting in the house or on a lake catching nothing. A few perch would be nice. I need a spot to start. Can someone suggest a landing I can find I can go from there. Thanks

Just wondering, can anyone tell me if they are driving on the lake by fish camp, just trying to decide what we need to bring up.

BAITS MOTEL Best bet for perch and crappies now is to start at Fish Camp with waxies, spikes, mousies and rosie reds. No real tips on the bluegills at this point. For perch, think small. REALLY SMALL. Now is when a tungsten jig and a sliver of plastic are worth their weight in, well, tungsten. It’s true. Baits Motel is closing. Out of business. So, I’d love to tell you that the fishing is excellent. That the fish are biting on everything in the store. So buy everything t 25% off. But, the truth is that fishing has been slow both on Fox Lake and Beaver Dam. The cold has kept a lot of us off of the ice. That always contributes to a poor fishing report as well. Now the guys that are doing well out there, and some are, aren’t afraid to move around and change tactics when the fish get fussy. One thing that IS working on the perch on Beaver Dam is to keep your hand steady when working the perch up from the bottom on your Vexlar. When you mark a fish coming up from the bottom checking out your jig, just stop and wait. Working them just doesn’t seem to entice them right now. A dormant Rosie Red minnow just resting on a dead stick is another trick. Red spikes are still working, but don’t use too much action. The Scandia jugs are moving out of here very quickly. So far this morning, the mousies, and red spikes are the hot items. Walleye fishing has been pretty normal on Beaver Dam on tip ups, using Shiners. The north end of the lake is the primary northern hot spot. WATCH THE ICE BY THE TRESTLE! Yes, the ARGO ATV shop will be moving to the intersection of HWY 33 and A just west of Fox Lake. We do not plan on selling live bait there, so Fish Tayles is going to be your go to source for up to date fishing info, live bait and everything else. Baits Motel will be resupplying live bait until we close on, most likely at the end of February. The building has been sold, so the bulk remaining stock of fishing gear, ice shacks, etc can be purchased in one bulk deal, but this property will no longer have a bait and tackle shop. We chose not to purchase this building because we decided to take some time and go fishing ourselves. We have enjoyed the friendship and bs, but we both work full time at our real jobs too and these hours are killers. Beaver Dam Argo will retain the F.F.L. firearms license, with no real plans for what’s next with that. Back to the fishing report: So far this morning, we have been hearing more about big crappies out at Fish Camp. Again, think smaller and slower for today’s fishing tip. Next week when the weather warms up again, those big perch and crappies will turn more aggressive. Then go back to the spinner/flash type jigs and a faster presentation. Christopher and Carol.

Got out with a buddy yesterday afternoon 1-5 put in 4 tip-ups between us 5 flags no fish home, Drilled a few holes plus fished a few open holes from other folks. Jiggin with Waxies managed a few nice perch (12) a big Gill and a small Walleye 6". the perch were glued to the bottom. color didn't seem to matter. They just wanted the Waxies. Just hooked em through the head and smashed the tail. Held just off the bottom seamed to be the spot. Rain(no fun) getting a few perch(fun) Trucks all over the place. Be Careful out there...

A friend and I went out in the crowd off of Fish Camp on Saturday afternoon. We fished four hours, hole hopped, never had a bite. Used plastics and bugs....NOTHING! We talked to several people that had got there early in the morning and the most fish we heard of was four all day. They said that last weekend was a good bite. The perch we saw were decent. I should say one guy had two and they were respectable.

Ice conditions on BD are the worst I've seen in my life. Please use caution,still open holes as big as football fields out in big lake and the narrows and heaves and cracks in tresel area. Few fish being caught with shorts mixed in. Seems like the top of lake looks best but remember creeks come in on that end and dam still open part way. Best to move around with machines not vehicles. Good luck and stay dry !!
