    College student in Ames and im planning on having a fish fry soon for the end of the semester gathering. Was wondering what people have for tips or places to get numbers of fish in the next week. Looking for catfish, walleye, crappie, gill. I have been fishing Saylorville spillway a few times but never got many numbers. Just wondering if anyone has any feedback. Thanks in advance!

    Costco. They sell big bags of frozen Tilapia. 😀

    Donnie Williams north of Ogden can be very good for crappie. I haven’t lived in the area for a couple yrs and with the renovations I don’t know how the fishing is or has been recently. One year caught enough crappies for a buddies rehearsal dinner for his wedding, that was a waste because his now x turned out to be a whore. A few years back I fished a area that has lots of concrete on shore and into the water. Drive in the west main entrance, turn left to the bait shop, boat ramp follow the road and go straight through instead of heading to bait shop. Goes from blacktop to gravel, comes to a turn around. Park there and to the north is the area, kinda steep to get near the water. Sat there 1 week after ice out and crushed the crappie. A boat on this lake really helps too.

    Frasier dam for walleye… I found if you don’t wear deodorant people won’t stand so close to you. Lol

    Fishing spots aside….. The comment about the x made me laugh.

    west lake Osceola, once the crappie start schooling around the casino you can catch a limit of 9-10’s easily and that lake could use some thinning still.

    Could be one of the most funny things I have seen on this website. Find myself giggling like a girl once in awhile thinking about that statement.

    Back on topic, not sure how far you are willing to drive, but find a lake that has yellow bass in them. They are very good eating fish and can usually be found in high numbers and there is no limit on them. Clear Lake, East Okoboji are a couple to mention. Not sure what lakes are infested with them close to Ames.
