  1. Hello, I made a post a week and a half ago asking about fishing Beaver Lake this time of year and several people responded to my post which I greatly appreciate. Just thought I’d recap my trip (down from Iowa visiting my dad for the week). Basically was able to get out on the lake from around 6am-10am for most every day while I was visiting. My dad lives around point 5 so we basically stayed down on the lower end of the lake and I primarily targeted deeper offshore fish since it was easier for the other people who I took out each morning to have a chance at catching fish equally.
  2. When you say big worm do you mean 10” ribbon tail worm or big trick worm....sounds like a fun bite for sure....thanks for the info!
  3. Thanks, Definitely will be looking for Shad.....seems like there are more Shad this year than I have seen in years past....saw lots of really small Shad yesterday morning, looks like they have benefited from the water being high this season.
  4. I will be targeting mainly the lower end from mouth of Clifty to the dam. (My dads place is right across from point 5). Hoping to run into some topwater fish, but will probably mostly employ a small Keitech on a jighead and cover water till I can find something to slow down and fish more thoroughly with a Dropshot, Ned or Carolina rig. Hopefully we will be able to run into a fish or two this week. I too will mostly be off the water by 9 or 10 in the morning daily. Thanks again Matt
  5. Quick question...I am down from Iowa for the week visiting my Dad who lives on the lake. I was out this morning for a little bit. I am mainly trying to target black bass but would love to catch whatever I can. Does this lake currently have a thermocline? I noticed a lot of fish suspended in the 20-25ft range over much deeper water, so I was just curious if this would be the depth zone that I should try to focus on or not? I know the water is up 6.5ft above normal pool so I ran some bank this morning to see if any fish were shallow, lots of sunfish but not too many bass. Fished mainly in t
  6. I have had great buzzbait days when it was very choppy as well
  7. I would be willing to guess that a lot of the bigger fish Spawn much deeper on beaver Lake than other lakes with less water clarity. The water clarity of beaver Lake allows light penetration much deeper which the fish eggs need to develop. The larger fish have reached that size because they have learned to adapt to the lake and the water fluctuations over the years. I think the deeper spawners have adapted to spawn deeper to guarantee a more successful spawn by avoiding problems with water fluctuations that way. I think that could possibly explain some of the reasons for the larger fish in
  8. I fished Beaver Lake for the 1st time earlier this spring. I think Beaver Lake is a challenging lake to fish, but in no way is it a poor bass fishery. I can't think of many lakes where I could fish the same stretch of water and catch all three species of bass, but I was able to do that on my trip. I think that the water stability factor plays the largest role in bass production on Beaver. Seems that the lake can fluctuate the most from year to year during the time when the bass spawn which doesn't guarantee a successful spawn from year to year. I think that beaver lake is a tough lake to
  9. I would definitely spend more time with the kietechs less bites but quality of fish were much better than the megabass 110
  10. Did not fish above marker 5, water temps varied from 47-49, saw some 50 on Wednesday. I could see bottom in 15 ft of water. Most fish were caught close to creek and main river channel swings
  11. Fished yesterday for about 5 hours total, 2 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon. Picked up 2 Spots off a dock in 20 ft of water over a main creek channel in the morning 1 keeper and one short. Fished around the point back into the adjacent cut and caught 1 a short LM and had a couple others follow the stickbait but would not commit to it. Fished for 3 hours in the afternoon, ran a small stretch of bank where I picked up 4 short spots and one short LM on a stickbait. Pulled into a cut and was able to catch 1 keeper SM on a stickbait suspended in the timber over 20 ft of water. I have been
  12. Was able to get out in the morning for 2 hours, caught one keeper smallie and a keeper eye, went back out for a couple of hours in the afternoon and was able to catch another keeper smallie a nice eye and a nice 5.5lb Largemouth. All on slow rolled swim baits.
