Anyone tell me how the boat launch is at this time?
This is new to me. I have fished this lake for more than 40 years and never caught or heard of one caught. Anything to thin the Striper population is fine with me. I have caught some Northern and was hoping they could manage the stunted fish. Whatever it takes this Lake needs some help!!!
Have heard of channel cats caught by buddies when bass fishing with plastics. I would think it is a good thing, more and more inland lakes seem to have catfish showing up. 2 lake close to me they have showed up are Lac la belle and Rock lake. I love cats, both catching and eating. I would think they could definitely put a dent in any fish that is overpopulated, they are big fish eaters.
Seems like there are more channel catfish in this lake than I first thought. Been hearing of more and more people catching them. Any of you guys catch a cat out of here recently?? And I'm NOT talking about bullheads.

My friend caught a channel catfish from shore last week. Yes a catfish NOT a bullhead. I've caught thousands of yellow/brown bullheads in this lake over the years and caught my share of catfish on the near by river. I know the differance and this was about a 12" channel cat.
Also talked to an old timer on the other side of the lake who said he also caught a small channel cat as well. He is also a reliable source of info. Not sure what this will mean for the lake, or even if catfish can become a naturalized species in this lake. If anything maybe they can grow up and thin out some of the stripers in here. Any thoughts and opinions???
