    I fish Wappapello fairly often. Its a very nice lake with no houses, hotels etc. Theres plenty of campgrounds, cabins etc, and they are really inexpensive, even during the season. I like to take my family down there, and we try for the crappies and bluegills, which keep my kids occupied. I do know that they really catch some wopper flat heads out of this lake. Its not much for the blues. As well, its a great bass fishery. Wappapello is included in all of the fishing reports published for the state. If you do a google search you can easily find access to the fishing reports, and find out whats biting. Good Luck Fishing.........:cool:

    I've fished Wappapello several times but never for catfish. I do know some people who jug fish there from time to time. They do really well. As Jetdriver said, there's also some good flats that have come out of there but I haven't heard of many people that actually target them. Usually it is a crappie or bass fisherman that gets a hold of a good one.

    I'm only 60 minutes from there, so it is reasonably close. However the Mississippi river is only 10 minutes, so you know which one I choose!! LOL
