    Yeah Larry, I've fished it many times. I live in Moberly so it's one of the few close places to fish. Shad are pretty easy to come by in the coves at night or below the spillway during the day, but be aware that it is illegal to throw a net at Sugar Creek Lake. As far as catfishing goes, there are some nice ones in there, but they're pretty hard to find. Me and a BOC buddy (jlcperformance) went fishing there the other night with no luck as far as boating any fish, but he had a really nice hit on live perch...his reaction time just wasn't quick enough:wink:. I do know that there are also bluecats in the lake, too. Shoot me a pm when you get ready to go, I may be interested if the wife lets me out:cool2:. GOOD LUCK!!!

    Hey Larry, I fished Sugar Creek Lake again on Wednesday night (7-28) with Jeff (jlcperformance). Once again, I didn't have much luck nor did I get many bites, but Jeff caught a couple of nice channel cat that weighed about 5 pounds each. We were anchored in a cove using live perch. I was fishing around log structure and he was fishing next to rocky banks. Hope this helps next time you go!
