    Hello, I'm new to the site. Just wondering if anyone has fished Freeman Lake and did any good, What bait did you use? I use Chicken livers with strawberry koolaid, also used some stew meat with garlic. Fred

    hey brandon welcome to the boc. they just stocked it with 1100 pounds of catfish. I fish paylakes that puts in that much. And they r a whole lot smaller. we r working on getting the fishing better there. freeman lake was better before they had to drain it to fits the dam. I work for parks and recreation and that's one of r parks. If u fish it good luck. Do u live in E-town?

    Yes I do , I like the fact I live just 4 minutes from the Ring Road entrance. I fish there mostly but have been hearing about the boat docks being hot spots. I used to fish there before the dam leaked but after have not until now. I fished down behind Target on Saturday but the turtles took everything I put out. And today by Ring Road with no bites at all.

    I've fished freeman lake growing up as a kid, the only time we really caught catfish when fishing for them was over by the damn and at night. We'd get run off quite often. Other than that it was while fishing for bluegill with crickets around the dock or brush piles and while bass fishing with plastic worms around the rocks.
