    Has anyone been catfishing Beaver Lake? I used to Flathead fish there, but it seemed to get harder and harder to produce any fish. I started fishing Grand Lake in Oklahoma and the catch rate is MUCH higher for me. I know some guys do real good on trotlines on Beaver, but I am just curious if anyone successfully rod and reel fishes for big cats on Beaver.

    Like you mentioned, trotline and jugs have really been it for me, and that was a few years ago up above Hickory Creek.
    I have taken a sworn oath to not get on Beaver lake to catfish.
    So far, I am still holding true to my oath..........I broke my oath on Greers Ferry last weekend though.:roll_eyes:
    Good luck if you do fish there and do any good. :cool2:

    Yeah, I've cussed that lake a few times. It's half the distance of Grand Lake from me so it's tempting to try it but I just can't produce anything interesting. I was just wondering if it was just me. I'll stick with the Oklahoma water.
